It’s time students stopped ‘chew and pour’- Eugenia Tachie-Menson

The Country Director of the Young Educators Foundation, Eugenia Tachie-Menson, has admonished students to desist from memorising their lesson notes and reproducing same during examinations, popularly known as ‘chew and pour’.

Speaking at the Ghana Science and Technology Explorer Prize (GSTEP) Challenge, Madam Tachie-Menson observed that most competitors memorised to pass a test without necessarily understanding what they are taught.

It is on the back of this that the Country Director advised the students to use their own words when making presentations.

“Let’s learn not to commit presentations to memory, let’s speak to the concept. Whenever the presentations are being projected and you’re speaking, we can see the words and it’s word for word.

“This tends to be a very Ghanaian way of learning and teaching but it’s not the right way,” she stated.

The twenty-five Junior High Schools in the Greater Accra Region who were initiated into GSTEP Challenge in September recently passed the judging phase after going through several stages.

The challenge, organised by the DreamOval Foundation and other partners, sought to support junior high school students with the needed resources to develop applicable skills in solving societal problems using Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

The Foundervine’s Programmes Manager, Elikem Kofi Anuaku, said that the GSTEP also aims at reaching out to about a thousand students across the country.

This initiative complements the government’s efforts to promote STEM education.

In an interview with JoyNews, the judges said they were impressed by the prototypes from the various teams.
