December Events

1. Teacher Development Programme at Chennai by SchoolScape

Dec 10

About –

The Teacher Development Programme being conducted by SchoolScape is aimed at working teachers and parents to enable them to work with children in the second phase of development, from 6 yrs to 12 yrs; Classes 1 to 8.
 
The programme is being conducted to give schools an opportunity to bring in changes in the classroom systematically and easily in tune with current ideas of education, discussed elaborately in the NCF (National Curriculum Framework) documents, which are also the basis for the RtE Act.
 
With the programme timed to start from the December holidays, it would prepare the participating educators to bring in changes from the next academic year. The Montessori programme for this age group makes it possible for schools and professionals to decide how the principles and practices could be incorporated into a regular classroom.
 
The course would help the teachers ensure that they are effective in helping children to learn constructively, rather than mechanically; comprehensively rather than in bits and pieces; with understanding, rather than merely by rote.  The teacher would be able to see the evidence of her efforts in a short time as children explode into learning along with a feeling of responsibility and a psycho-social development.
 
Benefiting the child, the parent and the professional educator, while the composite learning levels of the school are also raised, the Teacher Development Programme will be multi-beneficial.
Curriculum
The focus of the TDP would be on learning the pedagogy that is intended to be practiced in the schools or education programmes. There would be a heterogeneous mix of lecture-discussions, demonstration of activities, experiential learning, presentations, seminars, group reading, observation, written assignments, games & exercises, practice sessions, along with opportunities for reflection that will all be used as a means to help the participants to discover their own potential.
 
Skills like singing, art work, leading a discussion, story telling, writing and reading will also be built in seamlessly into the programme.
 
The subjects studied would be
Language, Mathematics, History, Geography, Geometry, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Art
Principles of Montessori theory and practice
Democracy and relationship to school and society
Alternative education in India
Education thinkers and practitioners

Recommended books could be bought, borrowed or shared
