Teacher Development

Sunil Sah

Education is the process of making children strong and sensitive human beings so that they can lead a meaningful life. They should be able to work for the betterment of society and see their role in bringing positive changes globally. So, every teacher should be aware of the fact that while the child in his/her class is an individual, she/he is also a part of the society and needs to develop accordingly.

In the early days, visiting government schools in Rudraprayag, I would experiment with many language teaching methods that until then, we had only read and talked about. Of these, storytelling was always a hit. I have seen small but consistently positive results with storytelling on children – from engaging the attention, developing an interest in books, to awakening the desire to express through talk or writing.

We are bequeathed a legacy of clever and painstaking experiments by the pioneers of modern science. In the age of information overload, it is prudent to consider why we need to dirty our hands doing experiments, instead of merely  depending on processed information to push the frontiers of science.
 
Animals constantly interact with their environment for the most vital of functions - finding food, avoiding predators or courting a prospective mate. What role does our nervous system play in these interactions? What do we know about this vital organ system and how it is made?

Three pillars of literacy

Orality, orthographic expertise and exposure to a variety of texts – together constitute a comprehensive literacy experience for children. These three pillars are neither incremental nor causal in nature. They are, in fact, spirally intertwined and if early readers experience them simultaneously, it helps them to become motivated, independent readers.
