National Reading Day Celebration-Storytelling Session

Classes 1 to 5

Celebrating ‘National Reading Day’ in 19th June 21, primary students of Arwachin International School took part in a live storytelling session by Simi Srivastava, an award-winning storyteller who works with Eupheus Learning.

 The first story ‘The Mouse sees the World’ used clever symbolism and reminded us that it is the best if we stay at home during these covid times. In the story a mouse who was searching for a companion to see the world, came across various animals during his journey through the jungle. His adventure took a twist when he met a cat and then realised his mistake. His exposing himself to the unknown world without understanding it put him through a lot of trouble and he eventually hurried back to his home.

The second story for grades 3 to 5 ‘The Dragon Painter’ was about fulfilling one’s dreams by finding one’s passion and working hard to achieve success in it, however big or small. The story was about a painter who was truly passionate about his art, so much so that he brought life to the dragons painted by him on the royal temple’s walls. This impressed the king who appointed him as the royal painter.

The storyteller brought much life to the stories which were enjoyed thoroughly by our children.

        Experiential Learning in Practice

        “Tell me, I forget; show me, I remember; involve me, I understand”

        Following a similar ideology, an online training session on ‘Experiential Learning in Practice’ was conducted for the teachers all over India on 8thJune 2021 by CBSE (COE) Delhi East. The session was attended by Ms IshaPandit from Arwachin International School, Dilshad Garden. The spokesperson for the session was Ms Ritu Mehta, Principal Apeejay School, Pitampura, Delhi.

        Ms Mehta emphasised upon how hands on experiences influence the learning process. With experiential learning, students are given the opportunity to apply their ideas in a real-world situation where they too play an active role. The learners get involved in the activities and evaluate their learning by using the information useful to them, then further they use this information in other activities and reflect back on the experience they’ve gained. She further stated that students can get engaged in experiential learning through activities such as international travel, cultural exchanges, museum tours, and project-based learning as per their convenience and time.

        She also discussed Kolb’s Cycle of Experiential Learning which has four steps:

        1. Concrete Experience – Experiencing planned event or ‘doing an activity’, like: role plays, interviews etc.
        2. Reflective Observation – Engaging in activities that require the child to step back and look at his experience.
        3. Abstract Conceptualisation – Here, the child reflects back on his experience and use various research methods for other activities.
        4. Active experimentation – On the basis of his observations and experiences the child moulds all the things and creates something new.

        She stated thatfor effective learning to occur, the learner should complete all four stages of the model and no one stage can stand alone as a learning procedure.

        She concluded the session by saying ‘Experiential learning is the process of "learning by doing" and is a crucial input for making learning joyful. Students should learn from what they study and use it. It should not be rote learning for them, which they only learn for exams and then forget.’

                                                            There is a famous proverb, “Tell me, and I’ll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I’ll understand.”

                                                            Using drama and theatre as a tool to teach effectively, a teacher training session on 'Role of Theatre and Drama in Classroom' was conducted by Dr. Manisha Sharma, Principal, Venkateshwar International School, Delhi and was attended by teachers of CBSE schools from India and including Mrs. Annapoorna Siddhartha from AIS.

                                                            She talked about the history of theatre in India which dates back to 10th century B.C.and gave example from the work of famous Sanskrit dramatists Kalidas, Bhasa,Bhavabhuti,etc. Further, she suggested various ways to teach through different types of drama and elements of theatre as the attention span in children is not high, and in today’s world which is powered by technology, it is even more difficult to get them to concentrate and remember things. Teaching through this medium is not only effective; it will also bring the necessary change in the learning process of students.
