This presentation is about Seward Incorporated's participation in the USAID funded Malawi Teacher Training Activity.Seward designed and developed an interactive training DVD for use in pre-service teacher training. The DVD provides a consistent means of presenting pre-service teachers with lessons demonstrating actual classroom instruction on Life Skills topics related to HIV and AIDS. These materials are intended to be incorporated into the teacher preparations curricula at all of Malawi’s Teacher Training Centers (TTCs). Video of the lessons was produced by a crew from the Malawi Institute for Education. The teachers and classrooms in the videos represent a number of schools. One demonstration lesson is provided for each level, Standards 1-8. Two discs were produced. The first contains lessons from Standards 1-4, where the classroom instruction is in Chichewa. The second disc contains lessons from Standards 4-8, where the classroom instruction is in English.
