Tusome Early Grade Reading

Speeches Shim

Learning to read fluently in primary school is a critical foundational skill and one of the greatest predictors of academic success for a young student. Tusome (“Let’s Read” in Kiswahili) is a flagship partnership between USAID and the Government of Kenya’s Ministry of Education (MOE). Tusome is implemented through the MOE in all public primary schools and 1,500 Alternative Provision of Basic Education and Training (APBET) institutions (low-cost private schools) across Kenya. The Tusome technical approach employs research-driven learning materials, proven teaching methodologies, and a cutting-edge tablet-based feedback and monitoring system to improve the literacy outcomes of 6.7 million pupils by 2020.
