By Zoila Palma: Students from Belize and Guyana will benefit from a pilot program on CARICOM economics.
That is, the teaching of regional integration and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) Single Market and Economy (CSME).
The new initiative is being introduced by the CARICOM secretariat.
Educator, Eletha Johnson from Queen’s College in Saint Kitts will virtually teach students from the Ladyville Technical High School in Belize.
Lessons will commence at 10:30 a.m. Belize time and focus on an introduction to CARICOM.
Students will participate along with their teacher, Abdiel Medina.
In addition, students in Guyana and Belize will also engage each other throughout the lesson.
Medina will then teach Johnson’s class virtually on May 17 and complete the introduction to CARICOM.
The CARICOM secretariat says that 4 teachers, 2 from Guyana and 2 from Belize are paired to teach each other’s class in May.
Stefphoney Grinage of Sacred Heart College and Albert Inshanally of Queen’s College in Guyana will also teach lessons from another CARICOM topic later this month.
“This online pilot is a precursor to a proposed activity for teacher exchanges, where they would travel and be attached to classrooms across CARICOM to observe and share experiences in the host Member State,” said the Secretariat in a statement.
