The purpose of education is to make human beings capable, competent ,and wise so as to meet the challenges of life. In a world that is dynamic, entropy and chaos quickly enter the picture as the pace of life becomes faster, the demands on an individual’s mental, physical, and emotional resources increase and flexibility and adaptability become the buzz words. To accommodate all these factors, one needs to be innovative and creative, be able to work collaboratively, communicate effectively, think critically and be proactive.

A text book may or may not be enough to either create a deep interest in the subject or to instill specific skills in the students. This History module comprises of six self-contained lesson plans which will take the student beyond the textbook!

Teachers and students need to nurture each other, help each other to think for themselves and not be content with received answers. Most students are just mirrors— they reflect what the teacher teaches. But a few students are windows—they bring light to the subject. The whole purpose of education is for both teachers and students to metamorphose into windows.

For the teacher of Indian nationalism in the schoolroom, the first obstacle is the textbook. Next is the presentation of the history of National Movement as the history of the Indian National Congress . Then comes the idea of India as constituted in the textbook.

 The presentation will encourage student teachers to reflect on some of the issues related to the teaching of social studies and think of ways to meet these concerns.

In teaching science, the facts are important. But in a class where rote learning is discouraged, learning becomes an enjoyable activity. Children must be taught to appreciate underlying relationships and harmony in nature, and to be thrilled about it.

Given the intrinsic complexity of language, it is tempting to ignore grammar. But an understanding of language would be better if there is an attempt to know more about the ways words combine together to form sentences / phrases.
