Overview: PLANE Hausa Foundational Learning Materials

PLANE has successfully developed literacy and mathematics materials for Primary 1-3 students, along with read-aloud anthologies and teacher guides to simplify the experiences of teachers and aid their delivery in the classroom. The materials, which are in alignment with the Nigerian National Primary Curriculum and global best practices are linguistically and culturally relevant, written entirely in Hausa and in collaboration with local stakeholders. The foundational learning materials use a learner-centered approach to instruction that will ultimately improve both teaching practices and learning outcomes in primary schools. These resources will transform teaching and learning by meeting teachers and pupils where they are, in their own language and then helping them to apply the same skills in another language of wider communication.
