Teaching Methods

Education as the art of stimulating and protecting natural human growth demands a conducive atmosphere for physical, intellectual, social,aesthetic and emotional growth

Not a prescribed text but a library full of varied books, pictures and maps.
Not a bell-bound series of periods but freedom to persevere and achieve results in workshops, gardens and playgrounds.
Not teachers who are harassed to keep a heterogeneous crowd of learners attentive to the same rigid syllabus but teachers who are free to take interest and offer guidance as needed in what every individual is doing.

So, the main objective is to find a method of instruction by which teachers may teach less, but learners may learn more; by which schools may be the scene of less noise, aversion and useless labor, but of more leisure, enjoyment and solid progress through which the community may have more light, order, peace and rest........................................... by Comenius

1. Improvisation and Lateral Thinking
To apply creativity and imagination to utilize daily seen and used material and events to elucidate lessons. Mrs. Munty Bhattacharya won the Monash Award for for using Creative teaching methods in her class. Her classroom is more a Laboratory with objects ranging from pebbles to palanquins, and is not the usual Chalk - talk space. This is a general practice in the Sub Junior section specially the Lower and the Upper KG.
2. Theatre in Education (TIE) TIE, is the use of theater skills to create a rich learning process that sets out to examine and further comprehend issues affecting the real world in which we live in and with which people have to cope..a search for issues to be questioned and the subsequent transposition of them into an exciting theatrical form. We had a special workshop on TIE by Mr. Janardan Ghosh to orient our teachers with the concept. We also won the British Council School Theatre Competition 2009. They shall provide us with a cash award of Rs. 50,000.00 to promote TIE in school. They are also sponsoring the best actor from our school, Shreyansh Rohatgi for a short course in Theatre at a summer school in London.
3. Theme and Project Method of Learning The lessons are designed based on a theme for a stipulated period of time and proceeds to integrate the entire range of subjects that the child should know. The method involves project and activities that gives the learner 'a hand' on experience of the knowledge that the child seeks. At all levels we have adopted the method to enhance the learning process and it attracts the attention of the child in the subject. The subject itself turns interesting. We have a practice to maintain a lesson plan which is prepared by a group of teachers in equal intervals.
