IGCSE Workshop

We attended the Cambridge Secondary 1 Mathematics workshop conducted by Margaret Tettey on 15th and 16th October at Glendale Academy. Ms. Margaret has taught in secondary schools in Ghana and London for over 30 years. At present she is working as principal consultant for Cambridge Secondary 1 check point and also works on the development of papers.

The aims of the workshop were:
1. To familiarize with the syllabus content, structure and standards of assessment.
2. Provide step by step guidance on implementation and planning.
3. Provide advice on teaching strategies.
4. To familiarize with the support materials and resources.
5. To explain the feed back on progression tests.

Teachers of international schools from Bangalore, Pune, Surat, Ahmedabad, Mumbai participated in the workshop. Mr.Nagarjuna, Mrs. Lopamudra and myself from Oakridge International School, Einstein campus participated in the workshop.
Apart from the inputs given by Margaret Tettey, we got a wonderful opportunity to share the ideas, methodologies and resources from various schools all over India.
