        • Explore in which the teacher intends to conduct all the activities that will help the child to draw a conclusion.
        • Explain and Elaborate which is a two way process where the students will explain what they have learnt and the teacher will validate or correct the information
        • Extend opportunities to students to apply the knowledge they gained from a topic.

                                            “Teaching Strategies in Science

          On 20thjuly2021, an online training was provided by CBSE for science teachers on methods of teaching science in the classroom, as it helps to create better learning for the students.

          The resource person of the webinar was Mr. VivekAwasthi whose approach during the session was on the need to create scientific temperament among the students through different teaching strategies. It was attended by Mansi priya (Science teacher of AIS).

          According to Mr. Awasthi, ‘Science is a knowledge earned in orderly manner by observation, research and development’. It establishes a relevant connection between what is taught and learnt in the classroom and what a student sees and relates to its surrounding environment. Hence different methods like Demonstrative method, Project method, Problem Solving method, Social Development method should be used instead of the only Lecture method in science to facilitate and foster the spirit of enquiry among students in all elementary subjects including Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

          He gave various examples of how different concepts, formulas, numericals, conversions, reactions and diagrams can be presented in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, to keep the young minds explorative and build complex thinking in them.

          To make the students more curious -Hands on learning, Laboratory experience, Nature walk and art integrated learning should be included in teaching strategies to strive smooth development of the thought process as it is important that students learn to question the validity of thoughts and scientific work presented to them.

          Overall the workshop was beneficial in understanding how different strategies have roles to play in different aspects of science. It was fruitful to be a part of this session which ended with fundamental questionnaire.

Some children may not be interested in a specific typeof learning, for eg-a new language, academicsubjects,sports or outdoors activities. The parents are child’s first and best teachers so they should support their child'sLD at home.

            At the end, an assessment was taken up by the teachers that gave them an opportunity to understand various ways to handle the learning disabilities.

                    1.While making MCQs the format we should keep in mind to highlight the task in the stem instruction for clarity.

                    2.Too many options should not be included and use all of the above/none of the above should be used sparingly to avoid confusion.

                    3.MCQs are suitable for knowledge-based testing rather than theoretical knowledge which should have open-ended questions.

                    4.Make the options nearly equal in length and don’t repeat same initial words/phrases in each option.

                    5.Ensure that all options have a parallel grammatical structure.

                    6.Lastbut not the least,she emphasized that the 3C’s of effective communication includes clarity, correctness and coherence which is the characteristic of a good MCQ format.

                      “Life is in different stages.

                      Every stage of life is the foundation for the next stage of life.
                      Every stage of live must be fully-lived.”

                      1. GROWTH: refers to an increase in the size of the body parts or of the organism as a whole.
                      2. DEVELOPMENT: is a process by which an Individual grows and changes throughout the life cycle.
                      3. MATURATION: refers to the changes that follow an orderly sequence and are largely dictated by the genetic blueprint which produces commonalities in our growth and development.

                          Teaching and Learning styles

                          An online session on ‘Teaching and Learning Styles’ was organized by CBSE COEBhubaneswar, on13th July 2021. The resource personfor the day was Mr.Vincent Edassery. The session was attended by Mrs. Pathak.

                          Mr. Edassery told that,Teaching & Learning Styles play a very important role in the development of our Education System, and they both are interrelated.

                          Teaching style represents those enduring personal qualities and behaviours that appear in how teachers conduct their classes. Teaching styles and tools also vary and typically include giving lectures, holding discussions, role playing, or demonstrating. The goals of teaching styles are as follows:

                          1. To develop effective classroom management skills,
                          2. To achieve lesson mastery,
                          3. To have positive expectations.

                          The manner in which a student learns is considered as his or her learning style. Learning styles refer to the preferential way in which a student absorbs, processes, comprehends and retains the information. A student may learn best by seeing, hearing, being active, or reflecting, to name a few. The VARKmodel of learning styles suggests that there are four main types of learners:

                          1. Visual Learners.
                          2. Auditory Leaners
                          3. Reading/ Writing Learners.
                          4. Kinesthetic Learners.

                          Mr. Edassery focused on the qualities of 21st Century Teachers:

                          1. They need to be curious, flexible and forward thinking in order to give students what they will need twenty years down the line.
                          2. The teachers should mould their teaching strategies as per the learning needs of the students.
                          3. Go digital: be smart and use the smart phones.
                          4. Innovate new methods of teaching and learning.

                           

                          He concluded the session with a very beautiful quote:

                          “A creative teacher can make the class exciting even under the shade of a tree while an uncreative teacher can make the students sleep in an AC classroom”.

                          It was a very enriching session with bags full of learning.

                            • one of the most powerful forms of communication is through real-like examples.

                            She concluded the workshop by asking all the participant to make all schools - HEALTH PROMOTING SCHOOLS.

                                CBSE COE Delhi East and West organised Training sessions on  '21st Century Skills' and 'Decision making skills in Adolescents'  on July 9 and 13, 2021 for teachers of all CBSE schools. The former session was conducted by Dr. C B Mishra, Principal,Prudence School, Dwarka, Delhi and the latter by Mr. Pankaj Munjal, an eminent educationist.

                                They appreciated the teachers for taking tremendous efforts to attain the goal of educating students especially during this pandemic.

                                The focus of the session on '21st Century Skills' was on the need to implement strategies to make our students capable, independent and responsible individuals. He further went on to say that the 21st century jargon is already there in the system , we only need to polish the skills through the internet platform and transform the classroom for a holistic approach with the collaboration of Blended approach, Flip model, etc. He, elated the fact that ‘understanding’ is just one aspect of the teaching learning process, executing it and measuring the learning outcome is what makes it effective and successful.

                                In the other session on 'Decision making skills in Adolescents', Mr. Munjal said that decision making skill helps us to deal constructively with decisions about our lives. It can teach people how to actively make decisions about their actions in relation to healthy assessment of different options and, what effects these different decisions are likely to have.He asked the teachers to teach them how to work through the steps in decision making and let them make decisions. Frequently teachers and parents may be involved in the process, and they can model appropriate actions. This is also a great opportunity to open communication between teachers and their students.

                                Mrs.Annapoorna Siddhartha attended these informative sessions with the ardent desire to incorporate these value points for the benefit of the students.

                                In all, both the sessions were truly informative.
