Abstract (200 Character Limit) : 

This panel includes four presentations on the experience of designing teaching and learning materials to support the Ghana Learning early grade reading program:

1. Managing the writing process in 11 languages: Planning for quality and efficiency (Emily Miksic, FHI 360)
2. Unified design for 11 languages: Bridging systems and innovations (Mackenzie Matthews, FHI 360)
3. The role of linguistics in the USAID Partnership for Education: Learning Activity in Ghana (Barbara Trudell, SIL Africa)
4. Implementing an early grade reading program aligned to the National Language Policy: The government perspective (Felicia Boakye-Yiadom, National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, MOE, Ghana)

The presentations share insights and best practices that would be useful to others developing materials in multiple languages.
