A different Lesson Plan Session

‘A true Principal makes his followers greater teachers than they were before’.

Every month, the 4th Saturday is solely dedicated for the lesson plan preparation for the ensuing month. Teachers are segregated according to their subjects. The HOD’S of the various departments take the lead to discuss and deliberate on the topics to be taught to the students comprehensively. Teachers are active participants with the relevant views and ideas, thereby equipping themselves with adequate knowledge and understanding of the topics.

Besides the text book, each teacher brings reference books and materials related to the chapter and revise at least a week in advance before they come to lesson plan writing session.  They try to incorporate and relate the topics with the present social scenario or the daily life situation. This process enables the teacher to be competent and confident about their subjects that without any materials in the classroom, they are able to hold the attention of all the students, as all concepts / points deliberated /exchange of views by colleagues, are fresh in their minds. Apart from these, the type of projects and activities are also planned either for a student or a group. This project or activity interconnects all the subjects, consequently children develop correct aptitude and attitude at the school level and lead them to pursue research programs  later on, during their higher education.

 

Innovative approach
Substitution period as creativity period (during the absence of Teachers)

When a teacher takes leave the class leaders or the bench monitors collect the creative activities from their heads and inform their friends in the class. Actually the peer group works wonders here. The students involve very interestingly and bring out their innate talents. Charts according to the level of the students  are prepared  for a week, well in advance by the teachers. These charts may contain quiz, G.K. questions, a picture (to assess whether students are positive minded and quick in decision making) on current topics etc.
