Open Resources for English Language Teaching (ORELT) Portal
The Open Resources for English Language Teaching (ORELT) portal is intended to support the classroom activities of teachers of junior secondary schools (JSS). The aims of ORELT are to: Provide a bank of ‘open content’ multi-media resources in on-line and traditional text formats that will support school based education and training for teachers in junior secondary schools; Provide ‘open content’ support resources for teacher educators who prepare teachers for junior secondary schools. To achieve these aims a Situation analysis of English language teaching (ELT) in selected Commonwealth nations was undertaken to determine strengths, gaps and challenges of teaching English in Africa and Asia. This formed the basis for developing appropriate materials that address the needs and realities of JSS teachers.
