One of Ghana’s first cycle educational system stipulates that the curriculum should be reviewed every 5 years but due to some challenges it has not been changed for the past 12 years.
As a trained teacher myself I welcomed the new idea by NaCCA to change the old curriculum to a new one known as the Standards Based Curriculum. Per the provision of this new reform, teachers are to be known as facilitators and no lesson should commence without a warm up activity known as “STARTERS”.
The starters are songs recited by both facilitators and learners to ginger the latter’s zeal before every lesson.
Surprisingly, during the said workshop, I had a very cute, brilliant and active master trainers like Miss Linda Ibrahim, Professor Kimbo and Honourable Samson Yeboah Jnr who taught I and other facilitators like Banshee, “Buhyia”, Queen
Sark and others.
School reopened just a week ago and social media has been bombarded with loads of videos about facilitators who are zealously singing, chanting, twisting their waists and acting really funny because of the said “starters”.
Check out this video below of a male facilitator twisting his waist as he sings with learners.
In my candid opinion, most facilitators may have to turn into “Agya Koo”, “Lil Win”, “DKB” and other funny artists in order to make their classrooms interesting enough for learning. As a facilitator myself, I just finished watching some clips of Michael Jackson to learn enough dancing moves to be used with my starters in school.
Below is another video of a female facilitator acting really funny in her lesson…

There are many videos of these funny acts of facilitators in their classroom on many platforms and hopefully more of such jovial clips would be sighted on social media in the coming days…
