Language

On of the biggest challenges, a primary school teacher faces, is to help her student learn to read. This is difficult because reading is not an easy skill and ability to acquire. It is very different from the oral language which a child acquires so effortlessly in natural settings before she/he comes to school. There are many sub-skills and cognitive abilities interwoven in it. The important question is: What do we understand by reading? Generally teachers think that it is enough if the child is able to read aloud textbooks.

Talking about teaching of languages raises a lot of questions in our mind such as what is language, how is it learnt etc. And as we try to understand these questions, the main point which emerges is that language is usually considered to be a medium of expression or is a means of exchanging ideas. When we look at the language in such a limited sense, then our perspective on language teaching also narrows down. And if our thinking about the nature of the subject is limited, then it would certainly impact the way we teach that subject.

Reading, as we are aware, is a great source for knowledge. The importance of reading has increased even more, in today’s digitised world. However, as a teacher I feel that our children read less despite the fact that they have more access to reading content. They sit glued watching television, or play with smart phones and other devices. These devices are seemingly entertaining but children do not realize that the devices eat into their valuable time making them couch potatoes at a very young age.
