Teacher Resource Inventory: Practical Tools for Adapting Literacy to Local Contexts

Every day, teachers around the globe are gaining access to new literacy resources, but they rarely come ready to be used in all contexts. The Teacher Resource Inventory aims to help teachers and their supporters to adapt literacy resources to unique local cultural and classroom contexts.

 

The Teacher Resource Inventory is a crowd-sourced database of open educational resources (OER) that offers practical tools and guidance to teacher trainers and literacy practitioners who support teachers in diverse settings around the globe. The Inventory’s resources include teacher training and coaching tips, multimedia examples of teachers adapting literacy teaching to different classroom environments, repositories of reading books that can be accessed in hundreds of languages, and more.

 

The Teacher Resource Inventory was collectively developed by members of the Project Literacy Community of Practice, a collaborative learning network of literacy practitioners from over 20 countries. The Inventory continues to be updated with new resources through contributions from literacy practitioners like you.

 

To contribute a resource that you have used and other literacy practitioners may find of interest, email Sonaly Patel at spatel@r4d.org with the resource title, link, and a few words on your positive and challenging experiences with the resource.
