Home REL Pacific About REL Pacific FSM Partnership to Improve Teacher Effectiveness by Developing and Implementing an Evidence-Based, Culturally Responsive Model for Instruction
Partner Organization(s): FSM National Department of Education, Kosrae Department of Education, Pohnpei Department of Education, Region 18 Comprehensive Center
REL Pacific is working with national and state education leaders in the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) to improve systemwide teacher planning and instruction by developing state-specific instructional models that can build a shared understanding of how learning works in their educational context and identify effective strategies teachers can use to support student learning. The goal of the project is to create instructional models for each state that elevate and sustain cultural practices and ways of knowing while achieving academic standards and dual-language policies that are currently in development across FSM.
This project supports efforts of the Yap Department of Education (YDOE) in the Federated States of Micronesia in improving the quality of Indigenous Yapese culture education in K–12 schools across Yap. The REL Pacific team is supporting YDOE as they update their Indigenous culture curricula and plan to train YDOE culture teachers about the new curricula.
No projects at this time.
