07.Jul.09 Pearls of Wisdom from Barack Obama

  • A prelude to his historic visit to Ghana, July 10, 2009

Harvard University overflowed with various graduation ceremonies on June 4, 2009. At the Harvard Law School, on my recent educational tour, I sensed the atmosphere seething with optimism. Like Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy, the 32nd and 35th U.S. Presidents respectively, a Harvard favourite son was making waves across continents, and all eyes were on him with great expectations. What was conspicuously missing at the function that Thursday was the presence of Barack Obama himself. The new U.S. President had cut his legal teeth at the School, having served as the first African-American President of the Harvard Law Review.

07.Jan.09 The Key Roles of an Effective Teacher

  • Proper preparation prevents poor performance

The main title of this article was adapted from Barack Obama's impressive campaign. Dubbed the best managed ever in the political history of the United States, the campaign was a remarkable feat full of great lessons for quality education in Ghana. It’s all in the proper preparation. And yes, we can!

24.Jan.18 William Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar" Part 2

Picture: Caesar Addressing his Troops.
Revisited for WASSCE & IGCSE (Drama) Students

The Part 1 of this piece centred on three aspects: One, the importance of Shakespeare’s work in bridging the gap between the ancient and modern, and cutting across cultures; Two, the heroic adventures of Julius Caesar, and his murder in the Roman senate; and Three, Mark Antony refuting Brutus’s claim that Caesar sought a kingly crown through excessive ambition.

24.Sep.08 River Volta: The "blue" gold

Time to harness water for rapid economic growth in Ghana

If someone had predicted that soon a bottle of water could cost about the same as a bottle of beer in a restaurant, the culprit would have been ridiculed and disregarded. Worse still, if someone had forewarned that, one day, to be caught in the simple act of watering flowers would attract a whopping $13,000 fine, the seer might have been declared insane.

19.Aug.08 Functional education for our youth - How WAEC can help

Sometimes it takes a while to see the obvious. But consider a situation where a teenager gets an A in Home Economics, or Agricultural Science, and yet is unable to cook a pot of rice, or grow tomatoes in the backyard to supplement the family chop money.

19.Aug.08 Where is the path? Always uphill! Cheers for K. B. Asante

Familiar strands run through Dr Kwame Nkrumah, George Padmore, Aneurin Bevin, George Bernard Shaw, and Edmund Burke. Certainly, the quintet belonged to a class of eloquent activists, and inspired writers. They have influenced many including Mr Kwaku Baprui Asante. The snatches of spirit (in the medley of Pan-African, socialist, and democratic undertones) showed in Mr Asante’s intellectual choices.

19.Aug.08 The Legacies of Dr Francis L. Bartels of Mfantsipim

The purpose of this piece is to carry the work of appraising Dr Bartels’s book, The Persistence of Paradox, one-step further by poring over another central aspect of the book: the preservation of the Akan language.
