Interactive Radio Instruction (IRI) is a teaching methodology in which a radio broadcast guides a teacher and learners through the activities of a lesson. While listening to the radio, learners actively participate in the lesson by singing, reading, writing, answering questions and solving problems in ways that ensure active learning. “Learning at Taonga Market’ is the name of the IRI program that was developed for Zambia. Learning at Taonga Market is a delivery of the Zambian Basic school curriculum that infuses methodologies such as New Breakthrough to Literacy (NBTL) and step into English (SITE) with the IRI methodology.
