      Teaching Learning Process on Holistic Language Development Skills

      “Teaching children is an accomplishment; Getting children excited about learning is an achievement.”

      Arwachin International School always provides opportunities to its teachers to experience such a platform where they could learn to enliven their teaching learning process. So as to arouse enthusiasm and interest in the children, keep their concentration, broaden their knowledge of the English Language and the ability to use it with comfort, two teachers, Mrs Prabhjyot Kaur & MrsBhawna Sharma attended an English Workshop on 1st December, 2018. The resource person was Ms. Kavita Iyer Vazir, an eminent educationist who addressed educationists from various leading institutions at a session hosted by Macmillan Education on “Skill Based Teaching Learning – decoding the communication skills.”

      The seminar aimed to achieve the following:-

      ·        To identify the 21st century skills for the 21st century student.

      ·        To raise awareness about elements involved in skill based learning.

      ·        To share task based activities for a learner-centred classroom.

      ·        To understand receptive skills and productive skills.

      Teachers were engaged in a day long interactive session on the holistic language development of children, improving their Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing skills. The teachers were made aware of the major elements involved in both receptive and productive skills.The session reinforced that the play way or activity method is the most effective way to induce learning since seeing is believing – doing is retaining, so by the end of the day teachers were equipped with a number of activities that can help our students attain the various skills and sub-skills required to master the four basic language skills of Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing. The seminar really proved to be a great experience.
