Multiculturalism is a reality in today’s classroom. The Royal Museum for Central Africa offers the workshop ‘Gloup! Un premier contact avec l’Afrique’ (‘Gulp! First Contact with Africa’) for second and third year kindergarten and first year primary school children.
To help them benefit from their classroom’s cultural diversity, the Museum organizes one-day training courses for kindergarten and first-year primary teachers.
On the programme: workshops, discussions and meetings with lines of enquiry to address Africa’s diversity and wealth with children via subjects such as the seasons, water, food, music that can be contextualized in the classroom throughout the year.
The training has two components:
- a theoretical component that addresses prejudices and stereotypes regarding Africa
- a practical component that allows teachers to formulate concrete work plans. This component begins with a presentation of the workshop ‘Gloup!’ (‘Gulp!’) for toddlers and then a meeting with an African activity leader who talks about daily life in her country of origin.
At the end of the course, participants will receive a file of teaching materials that will help them apply lessons learned to their professional context.
