STORIES: Students Becoming Teachers
Elon students spend a week at Namasimba, a rural school in Baluti, Malawi, tutoring the Malawian students in reading comprehension. The students use games, interactive reading and even snacks to keep the children engaged.
Namasimba is a primary school that houses grades one through eight. There are almost 3,500 students and only 34 teachers.
The 18 Elon students are participating in the winter term course "Malawi, Africa: International Service Learning," taught by education professors Joan Barnatt and Julie Justice.
