The Ghana Education Service (GES) says teachers as they wait for the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) to release the new curriculum-based textbooks can use the old textbooks for teaching in classrooms.
The Director-General of the Ghana Education Service (GES) and Vice-Chairman of WAEC Council Prof. Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa announced this speaking on Peace 104.3 FM Kokrooko show monitored by EducationWeb.com.gh.
Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa said though teachers particularly those at the basic level are required to get the new curriculum textbooks to teach the students however they must not base their teaching on only textbooks.
He indicated that teachers in the country must find their own ways and means to teach students in the classroom including using a mobile phone and other electronic devices as they wait for the new NaCCA textbooks.
“So maybe you have a topic that interests you in the old textbooks, you can use that to teach using the skills of the standard-based. The topics have not changed but how you teach has only changed” Prof Opoku-Amankwa noted.
According to the Director-General, the Management of the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA) in due course will make available the new standard-based curriculum textbooks to basic school teachers.
