One of the most important elements of literacy education is having instructors/teachers who understand how to teach and develop reading and writing skills effectively. YLAI creates and provides books and materials for teachers, librarians and school managers, but success relies heavily on training, mentoring and monitoring. YLAI provides training on innovative reading methodologies, and provides special support in how to implement strong reading programs in early year classes. YLAI trains teachers in interactive reading instruction, shared reading, guided reading, paired reading and independent reading.
Therefore YLAI develops trainings dedicated to principals, teachers and librarians to ensure that they have the continuous professional development and skills they need to deliver the expected high quality work in literacy teaching. YLAI has developed special training and mentoring on literacy for elementary school teachers in Indonesia to ensure that they have continuous professional development and skills to foster a comprehensive reading culture in their schools.
YLAI provides training on Balanced Reading Program to guide students in the learning process of reading by using stories related to the lives of children, including Interactive Reading Training, Shared Reading Training, Guided Reading Training, Paired and Independent Reading Training.
