Teacher Development

While studying Social Sciences, students should be able to understand contemporary social issues as well as their experiences in the classroom and be able to link it all up with the subject. There is not just one way of evaluation. What is important to see is to what depth children have understood the topic and if they have been able to see its linkages to their daily life. If they are able to articulate their views in writing, related as they are to their experience, this would be fulfilling the objectives of education.

If real learning has to happen in children in the classroom, a good preparation on the part of the teacher is a must. We teachers need to know what kind of preparation is necessary. It’s always better to think ‘How does the child learn?’, rather than thinking ‘How to teach the child?’, because the child learns only when he is ready to learn by himself. There is no end to learning, education is a continuous process. While learning in school is one stage, adopting the same in life is another stage.

Seeing is believing, they say. To see it better we need mirrors and lenses. Here's a story of that and a crossword to solve as an added bonus. Use this resource before you start the chapter on 'Light'.

This module is about soaps and detergents. We thought that since you use them in your daily life, it might be fun to find out more about them and do some experiments using them! The module is divided into three parts. In the first part we look at why we need soap and how it works. In the second part we look at why we need detergents and how they are different from soaps and finally in the third part we explore the effects of using detergents on the environment.

This kit aims to give physical significant of various units. Due to resource constraint, I have included only 9 physical quantities’ units in the kit. You can use this kit for students of class 6th till class 9th. Older students or adults can also use it if they want to understand these units better. This guide gives you details on what all there is in the kit and how to use it.

Take any toy and break it apart, pop comes a simple machine or a combination of it. Machines that make things move, roll, spin, bounce, slide etc. . Here is a compilation of activities to introduce & engage your learners to the simple machines that we are inevitably surrounded with. You can also tweak these machines to engage your visually challenged learners as well.

This is an introductory manual for the teachers which explores the necessity and possibility of integrating the nature of science while teaching any concept of the science. For the convenience the concept of nature of science is discussed with the help of the concepts of light. The resource is for the teachers of upper primary and high school who are teaching science. It can be used by both prospective teachers and the regular teachers dealing with science.

This teacher manual is based on the history of electricity. The purpose behind this Teacher Manual is to make teachers more confident in their content and pedagogy so that they could facilitate in developing nature of science in children by presenting it in the form of processes by which electricity was evolved and brought into existence. And what are the steps or necessary requirement for science student to inquire or explore.
