Dear Reader, Teaching has been a time honored tradition for hundreds of years. Whether you want to pursue a career in teaching or you wish to volunteer your time as a teacher, it is important to learn key techniques which can improve your teaching abilities. Without the right tools and information, it could take you years and cost you a small fortune to discover the secrets to teaching. Instead of spending a fortune on so-called experts or knocking yourself out with the old trial and error method, there is an easier way to be the teacher you have always dreamed of. Now theres good news .... I wont deny that there are a ton of books out there on teaching. Unfortunately the problem with most books on the subject of teaching is that they are either filled with plenty of promises and no solid techniques and strategies to back up those promises or they contain only one or two pieces of useful information and not a comprehensive look at everything you need to know to succeed in teaching. Introducing The Teachers Guide! Teachers Guide breaks the mold of all the other teaching books and manuals you have heard and read about. It presents solid, proven steps to help you learn how to be the teacher youve always wanted. Sounds too good to be true? Its not and I can prove it with Teachers Guide! But, first a word of introduction. My name is Dan. A few years ago I found myself in a situation not too different from your own. Like almost everyone else, I longed to be a better teacher, but I had no idea where to start! None of the books I had read on teaching had been able to solve my problem. Some of them were so mired down in fancy words and technicalities that it was a miracle I ever got past the first chapter! Others might have passed on a helpful hint or two, but did not solve my problems. Thats when it hit me! If I couldnt find a comprehensive guide on teaching, then why not create my own? I was tired of flipping back and forth through tons of books for the few bits of information that could help me; but I reasoned that if I put all those little tidbits of info together then I might actually be able to begin understanding the secrets to teaching. The next morning I furiously began to read through all of the teaching books that I had purchased over the past three years and take down the pertinent notes. I didnt stop there either. I swallowed my pride and enlisted the help of people that I knew who had been personally successful in teaching. It took awhile to sort through all of the information I had gathered and compile the notes I received from the experts I consulted, but when I was finished I sat back and was completely stunned. Right here in front of me was the information that I had been seeking all along! From the notes I had taken from several articles on the subject of teaching, as well as my own experiments, I had comprised a comprehensive compendium on the subject of teaching. I sat back in stunned amazement! It was all there! The Work of the Teacher How to Stimulate Thinking The Importance of Play in Education Classroom Lessons The Importance of Individual Differences How to Cultivate Moral Attitudes Then I decided to try an experiment and put all of my hard work to the test. The next morning I awoke with new determination. This time I would not fail! Suddenly, I was excited! I absolutely could not believe the difference. Suddenly it was all so clear! I could easily implement proven strategies without having to wade through a mountain of fancy words and difficult to understand terms. What happened next was nothing short of amazing! These strategies not only worked, but the results were completely astonishing. As my success with teaching grew, I started to feel guilty. I knew there were a lot more people out there who wanted the same solutions I had found. Somehow, it just didnt seem right to keep it to myself. One night as I made some changes to my book, I wondered how many other people might have the same problem? After all, if I couldnt find a decent comprehensive teaching manual, what were the chances anyone else could? Given the tremendous success I had encountered using my manual; I was sure that other people could take the same easy to read and understands strategies and achieve success as well. Right now youre probably thinking, Yeah, right. Theres a ton of teaching books out there. What makes you and your book so different? I wont deny for a minute that there are some good teaching books out there-after all Ive read most of them, if not all of them. The difference, however; is that my book blows all the others out of the water because it doesnt just focus on one area of the game. You get everything you need to understand how to teach successfully. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is left out. All the fundamentals are there. And thats just a small taste of what you will get when you order the Teachers Guide Absolutely everything anyone would ever need to learn how to successfully teach is contained within this impressive work. Okay, Im sold, but whats this incredible resource going to cost me? When I first began to think about putting my manual on the market, my first thought was to create a seminar where people could actually get the benefits in a hands-on way. I know not everyone loves to read, so that seemed to be a great solution. But, I quickly realized how time consuming that would be for everyone so instead, I decided I wanted as many people as possible to reap the benefits of this fabulous manual. So, Im willing to slash the cost just so you can take advantage of the incredible information within Teachers Guide.

Two Ugandan Teachers Share Their Country's Educational Challenge, What About You?

In this article, culled from The Guardian, two Ugandan teachers tell us about the progress of education in their country, what they see as the biggest challenges for African teachers and students – and their hopes for the future.

Education features prominently in the millennium development goals. Millennium development goal 2 aims to ensure that all children complete a full course of primary education, and is measured by enrolment, the proportion who reach the last grade, and literacy rates for those aged 15-24.

This is the interview...

Olivia Muhumuza, 46

Location: Railway Children Primary School, Kampala, Uganda
Subjects: Mathematics and science; also headteacher

What steps are being taken to achieve universal primary education (MDG 2) in Uganda?

Olivia Muhumuza

Uganda has created policies to encourage children to complete at least a primary school education, which has raised enrolment significantly. However, although many children are in school, I'm not very comfortable with the quality of education they are getting. Facilities do not match enrolment, leading to overcrowded classrooms and high teacher-pupil ratios – a teacher may have to manage a class of 100-plus children for the whole day. Some teachers are underqualified; the numbers were overwhelming when the universal primary education programme started. But the government is rectifying this with in-service teacher training.
The curriculum needs overhauling into one that is more relevant to our society. Today, it is more exam-oriented, so children are only taught to pass exams instead of learning to become people of character and integrity, and identifying talents to do things they love in future. We are producing people who will do jobs they are not passionate about, which erodes performance instead of adding value. It would be great if the curriculum were revised to nurture children's talents and interests early on, because our current curriculum tends to encourage dependency on rote learning and memorization instead of nurturing children's creativity, critical thinking skills, and imagination, [qualities] which spark innovation.

What is your personal daily teaching challenge?

It is the ever-increasing cost of living. Teachers' salaries in Uganda are very low. With the day-to-day worries of housing, transport, daily expenses, and medical bills, it becomes difficult to devote oneself fully to teaching. Also, continuous professional development is something I feel I need to update my teaching skills. For instance, I was trained to handle a class of maximum 30 pupils. So when I'm given 120 pupils, it is definitely a challenge. One needs to be equipped with alternative teaching methods and materials to help the children learn effectively.

What should the international community do to help improve education in Uganda?

The international community can help us to develop a more relevant school curriculum that will help children discover their talents, develop their passion, build character, enhance their critical thinking skills, and encourage them to become self-reliant. We can learn from other countries. For instance, in 2006 I visited Hampshire in the UK. I found that the authorities there gathered views from all the schools in the county, and matched them to the needs of the community to develop a primary school curriculum that was relevant to both the children and community. We could use these and other such examples. They could also put up model schools from which we can learn.

What are your hopes for improving education in Uganda?

Many teachers in Uganda are passionate about learning, and really want children to get the best out of school. But many challenges remain, as I have outlined. If these are addressed, Uganda's education system will improve significantly. In the 1960s, Uganda ranked as having one of the best education systems in Africa. There is no reason why that cannot happen again.

Location: Pioneer high school, Namungo, Mityana, Uganda
Subject: DDE, history and Christian religious education

What steps are being taken to achieve universal primary education (MDG 2) in Uganda?

Francis Kiyanja

Here in Uganda we already have universal primary education and now it is being introduced to secondary schools, too. Because the government has few secondary schools, it has begun entering into partnerships with private schools to pay fees for students. The government is acting like a parent to those students. The system isn't perfect yet, and there are lots of challenges. Teachers in government schools are often paid late, which causes big problems. I would say we are 50% of the way there but there is still a lot to be done.

What is your personal daily teaching challenge?

The biggest challenge we face in education is finance. The government says it can pay teachers, but there are too few resources in government schools – so the work can be almost impossible. Vital resources such as lab equipment are lacking, even though science is seen as one of the most important subjects.
I'm lucky that I am both a teacher and an administrator, so I have seen both sides. Teacher challenges are mainly around finance – payment must be prompt and must be enough. Increasing teachers' salaries should be a priority for Uganda. Lots of teachers have to teach in several different schools in order to make ends meet. Accommodation and travel are also expensive, and these can be challenges for low-paid teachers.

What should the international community do to help improve education in Uganda?

The international community could help to fund the schools where necessary and to provide resourceful personnel within the education system to equip the administrators in Uganda with the knowledge and skills they need. At the moment lots of the policies are good but they are neglected by the people who have passed them, so we end up with half-baked products. We ought to focus not just on exam results but on the general wellbeing of an individual.

What are your hopes for improving education in Uganda?

There have been lots of positives in recent years within education. In my school, I have worked hard to create a feeling of togetherness and teamwork among teachers. We also ensure that our teachers are always paid on time every month.
At a country level there has been a big effort to provide accommodation to government teachers, which makes a big difference. The introduction of universal education is a great principle too, and it is natural that there will be challenges when something is just beginning.

Let's hear from you and the challenges of being a teacher in your country.
