Encouraging students to be more responsible when it comes to their own learning...

 Deepalaya is an NGO run school located in the semi-urban part of South Delhi called Kalkaji. It serves underprivileged students from a nearby community. Anita Sahwney, the Principal, was aware that her higher-grade students were not taking control of their own learning as much as they should. She wanted them to learn the skill of setting academic and personal goals for themselves.

All aspects of learning which help build the ability to read, begin at birth and continue through very early childhood. Recognising how we can facilitate experiences for young children, so that they are well prepared to build up multiple skills such as decoding, predicting, understanding and enjoying the wonderful gift of reading, is a key factor in successfully teaching young children.

One sees many toddlers being confined to smaller spaces. In the pretext of safety, discipline and additional work load caused due to the mess they create, they are seldom allowed to learn by exploring their curiosity. This article attempts to bring out the impact of letting or not letting a child explore and experience through examples of ‘exploring an orange’ and ‘exploring sand in the sandpit.’

A lesson is often more interesting when students are given activities based on it. This article written by Athirai K shows us how activities can be designed around a lesson. It was published in Thisaimani (Journey 4) - an APF-Puducherry District Institute publication.

The best way to make children learn is to engage them in activities related to things they are already familiar with.
