Student Almanac Important Tips and Techniques for Ensuring Quality Learning

Student Almanac Importance and Benefits for Ensuring Quality Education

Student Almanac is an effective tool for student, teacher and parent for keeping information for a long time. ‘Student Almanac’ is abridge for connecting among student, class teacher, subject teacher, school and parents. Proper use of ‘Student Almanac’ ensures quality learning. Teacher and parent can ensure effective learning using Student Almanac. Proper use of‘Student Almanac’ can bring overall massive change in student’s learning outcome. ‘Student Almanac’ is basically a reminder tool. It is generally observed that active learner uses ‘Student Almanac’ properly which reflects in his overall personality.

Intensive Observation of ‘Student Almanac’

When we were going through‘Student Almanac’ in a surprise check, we found that homework which was written by the student on daily basis; that was not in uniform manner. All sincere students of the class write all the information given by concerned teacher on proper place. If a student is writing all the information properly and clearly;it means that s/he is sincere about his/her learning. Since s/he wrote all the information, it means s/he will try to complete it also on time for showing to their concerned teacher. This type of student is ready to take pain at home for completing his/her teachers’ assigned work.

Finding of Student Almanac Observation

Going through the ‘Student Almanac’ of class 4th; we found that 20/40 students wrote all the information date wise i.e. homework given by all teachers in detail, 10/40 students wrote the homework however it was not written systematically, 3/40 students could not bring their ‘Student Almanac’ regularly, 2/40 students brought ‘Student Almanac’ but could not write homework for a long time and 5/40 students have not ‘Student Almanac’ due to several reasons. We found horrible condition in class 6th where so many good students have not been maintaining their ‘Student Almanac’ properly for a long time. Subject teacher and class teacher have not noticed their faults.

After going through more than thousands ‘Student Almanac’ in several ‘academic session’, we noticed so many general characteristics among learners. These are as follows:-

Good students maintain their ‘Student Almanac’ properly i.e.

  1. Write complete information on Information page
  2. Write homework on daily basis
  3. Write all subject homework given by  subject teachers
  4. Show ‘Student Almanac’ regularly to his parent
  5. Bring ‘Student Almanac’ on daily basis
  6. Get his/her parent’s signature wherever it is required

General Students maintain their ‘Student Almanac’ halfheartedly i.e.

  1. Do not write complete information on Information Page
  2. Do not write homework on daily basis (alternate day or leaving 1-2 days )
  3. Do not write complete homework (may leave 1-2 subject)
  4. Do not show his Student Almanac to the parent

How ‘Student Almanac’ is an effective tool for teacher and parent?

Since, student note downs each and every activity on daily basis in his ‘Student Almanac’ which can be seen by teacher, class teacher, principal and parent on any time. Principal can also verifies completion of syllabus with teachers’ data. Parent can help his wards for mentioned activities in ‘Student Almanac’ according to learners’ age and class. Parent can see the current status of syllabus i.e.

  1. Which lesson is being taught by the teacher?
  2. Which lesson has been completed by the subject teacher?
  3. What types of homework is being given by the subject teacher?
  4. How much homework/other assignments have been given by different teachers?
  5. What is dead line for completing different assignments given by differentteachers on different occasions?

Why Student Almanac is an effective tool for teacher and the principal?

A wise educator can identify several personality and learning characteristics of a learner through ‘Student Almanac’ i.e.

a.       Students’ regularity

b.       Students’ punctuality

c.       Students’ Sincerity

d.       Students Attitude towards learning

‘Student Almanac’ can be used more efficiently and beneficially by the class teacher, subject teacher and the parents. So many students return back to school and announce that they did not get homework and they have completed all tasks. When parent checks it,s/he finds that there is no homework, however the student has not written the homework. Next day if a teacher asks her about completion of home work; student gives some ready made excuses i.e. could not bring his notebook due to this reason. Most of the parents are facing same problems. Students do not share school activities report with parents. Parent feels helplessness due to non cooperation of students. This helplessness can be overcome with the help of ‘Student Almanac’.

 “How we can do it” is a big question, however regular check of ‘Student Almanac’ by the teacher, subject teacher and parent can solve all problems.

I.                     If the class verifies‘Student Almanac’ on daily basis

ii.                   If the subject teacher verifies ‘Student Almanac’ on daily basis

iii.                 If the parent verifies‘Student Almanac’ on daily basis

It is prime duty of subject teacher, class teacher, school principal and parent to investigate and inquire about the day to day activities of student for keeping eagle eyes on the learners’ progress. Good academic performer always shows attentiveness in almost all class activities. The way a learner maintains his/her Student Almanac, is the way the student’s performance can be observed. Concerned subject teacher, school principal and parent can use this tool effectively for monitoring poor academic performers. In fact, “Student Almanac” can be effectively used for monitoring different types of learner. So let be 1st to keep an eagle eye on your students!

Classroom Management Tips and Techniques to Increase Students’ Learning

Classroom Management:- Tips and Techniques for Maximizing Students’ Learning Experience

Teacher’s expertise lies in managing a mix group of students smartly for ensuring the best learning outcome. Teacher’s subject expertise, well advanced proper planning before entering in the classroom, his ideas to integrate technology, his better time management skill and his better communication skill enhance students’ learning experience in the classroom.

A better classroom management skill demands a lot of hard work and proper practice before organizing actual teaching learning activity in the classroom. We are unique individuals. We possess different unique self skills for completing task systematically. Some of teaching styles of a teacher can be different  depending on his cultural location; however some unique features of a teacher remain same throughout world.

What should be done for maximizing learning in the classroom? What does a wise teacher do to ensure qualitative teaching learning in the classroom?

Planning before entering in the classroom

A wise teacher thinks about complexity level of teaching topics, students’ understanding level, supportive activities, and resource materials and his scheduled teaching time while preparing lesson in advance. Advance lesson planning helps educator to organize class as s/he wished to organize. Advance lesson planning helps educator to become a facilitator of learning in a students’ centered classroom.

Create learning environment in the classroom

Learning is a complex phenomenon. Learning different concepts, theory, methods and techniques in different subjects are really challenging for students. They are already in pressure to develop better understanding. Wise teacher creates a students’ learning friendly environment to make them alert for attentive listening and active for participating in learning process. Wise teacher uses different tools and techniques for making them alert learners i.e. learners’ friendly gestures in the beginning of class, sharing anecdotes, asking very simple questions related to students’ previous knowledge and their previous learning experiences.

Teaching through illustration and elucidation

Wise teacher works very hard, do ample practice and rational revision to have a command on teaching topic. Command on subject increases confidence level of a teacher which further helps  him to cater the need of academically poor performer as well as gifted students’ requirement in the classroom. Teacher teaches difficult topic in a light mood but precisely focused on teaching topic. Word to word and concept to concept teaching may make students lethargy. Wise teacher gives rational illustration and elucidate particular topic by correlating to past status and its implementation in present scenario. The moment students find learning topic relevant, interesting and challenging, their involvement grow and outcome of learning reaches at satisfactorily level.

Create Students centered classroom

Teacher’s presence in a classroom is due to students’ existence in the classroom. Wise teacher creates various learning experience for ensuring active and direct participation of students in the classroom learning. If the learners’ participation is good learning experiences and learning outcome will surely the best. Learning happens most when students’ participation goes at higher level in the class.

A subject expert makes each and every student secure and respectful in a mix group of classroom. S/he ensures each student’s intact dignity and ethnicity in the classroom. Wise teacher establishes democratic values in the classroom where all students are equal in the classroom. Each student has right to inquire, right to raise logical questions and right to reply in the classroom. Democratic values instill confidence among all learners; further students develop trust, feel connected with teacher’s teaching and develop a deep bond with teacher which leads their active participation in learning process. Students’ active participation ensures best learning outcomes in the classroom.

  Conduct authentic and reliable evaluation

Authentic and reliable evaluation system helps teacher to observe students learning growth in the classroom. Better performance in the test is result of better understanding of teaching topics. Wise teacher conducts authentic test during prescribed teaching time to observe learning alertness of students in the classroom. He helps poor academic performers by using suitable teaching techniques i.e. illustration, revision, real life examples, re-teaching and by giving personal attention to them. It is kind of moral support and moral boost up for poor academic performers. Teachers develops standard test for evaluating good academic performers. Wise teacher provides advanced resource materials, web links, and questions paper for practicing more and develop conceptual understanding for touching academic heights for the best academic performers in the classroom.

Teacher provides real feedback to each and every student of class on various occasions so that students can review and reform their learning styles and other correlated things.

Proper time management to complete a pre-decided task helps a teacher to implement his teaching techniques, ideas, vision and mission in a real classroom. If a teacher chalks out a plan well in advance for executing proper teaching in the classroom, he brings the best learning experience for the students in a classroom. Ensuring best learning outcome for a mix group of students determines the teacher’s expertise.

English for Specific Purpose and General English

English for Specific Purpose and General English

 

What is difference between (ESP) English for Specific Purpose and General English?  How Is ESP different to EGP?

Hutchinson et al. (1987:53) answers this quite simply, “in theory nothing, in practice a great deal”. In his time, teachers of General English courses, while acknowledging that students had a specific purpose for studying English, would rarely conduct a needs analysis to find out what was necessary to actually achieve it. Teachers nowadays, however, are much more aware of the importance of needs analysis, and certainly materials writers think very carefully about the goals of learners at all stages of materials production. Perhaps this demonstrates the influence that the ESP approach has had on English teaching in general. Clearly the line between where General English courses stop and ESP courses start has become very vague indeed.

 

Rather ironically, while many General English teachers can be described as using an ESP approach, basing their syllabi on a learner needs analysis and their own specialist knowledge of using English for real communication, it is the majority of so-called ESP teachers that are using an approach furthest from that described above. Instead of conducting interviews with specialists in the field, analyzing the language that is required in the profession, or even conducting students’ needs analysis, many ESP teachers have become slaves of the published textbooks available, unable to evaluate their suitability based on personal experience, and unwilling to do the necessary analysis of difficult specialist texts to verify their contents.

difference between (ESP) English for Specific Purpose and General English

Differences between ESP and EGP

ESP EGP
1. Part of specialization.

(English in Engineering, medical colleges)

2. Aims at restricted competence. (catering to the specific needs)

3. Materials restricted to subject specialization. (‘narrow-angle’)

(linked to learners’ specialization)

4. Small, homogeneous group of learners. (more purposeful)

5. Cost-effective.

(very less money required compared to EGP)

6. Teachers and institutions accountable.

(if the students are not satisfied, they can ask for the refund)

7. ‘Training’ orientation (Training fails if ‘output’ behaviour does not equal ‘input’ instruction)

(Technical Model)

(e.g., ATCs English)

(e.g., good and poor are antonyms)

8. Aims at 100% success.

(efficiency=output/input=1)

9. Trainers and trainees are conversely related (The trainer knows trainees very well, and can better tell the do’s and don’ts.)

10. Aims/Targets/Goals-What learner has to do with language once he has learnt it.(What the trainee has to do, once the course is completed)

1. Part of General Education.

(English in traditional system of education)

2. Aims at general capacity.

(learning English to learn English)

3. Materials based on general texts.

(‘broad angle’) (not linked to the learners’ specialization)

4. Large, heterogeneous group of learners.(serves no purpose)

5. Expensive.

(Money spent on learning English in the years)

6. Teachers and institutions not really accountable.

(e.g., negative incentive for high school teachers in AP)

7. ‘Education’ Orientation

Output does not usually equal input; instruction converted into general principles

(Humanist model)

(e.g., good and bad are antonyms)

8. Results/success not predictable.

(Efficiency=output/input, never = 1.)

9. Teachers and trainees are not conversely related.

(It is difficult for the teacher to know about each learner in the class)

10. Objectives- What learner has to do in order to learn)

(learn English to learn more English or learning to continue learning)

JEE Main and JEE Advanced Result for Admission in Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) India

JEE Main and JEE Advanced Result for Admission in Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) India

Joint Entrance Examination (Main) and Advanced – 2018

Indian Institute of Technology is premier organization of India. Alumni of Indian IITs have been constructively contributing their innovative ideas for making 21st century world citizen’s life easy. A number of IITs alumni work in different corners of the world and in different fields.

IITs established by government of India Institute of Technology Act, 1961 to impart standard technical education in India. IITs are great institutes of national importance. Presently, 23 IITs are fully functioning in India. Qualifying in JEE Main and JEE Advanced entrance test are matter of great importance of a student, Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE, New Delhi) conducts JEE Main entrance test in all over India including a few examination center in foreign countries to fetch Indian as well as foreign students to this premier institutes.

The JEE (Main) secretariat/CBSE is only an examination conducting body. After declaration of result the data is handed over to SEAT ALLOCATION BOARD or the concerned state government/institute for Seat Allocation Process and admission procedure. The JEE (Main) Secretariat/CBSE does not collect the information regarding total number of seats available in the institutions and reservation criteria followed by the institutions. (JEE Main Information Bulletin)

Only the All India Rank (AIR) is used for admissions through Central Seat Allocation Board to NITs/IIITs/CFTIs/SFIs/Others, while other ranks are for information purposes. Eligibility for Admission to NITs, IIITs and CFTIs participating through SEAT ALLOCATION BOARD Admission to NITs, IIITs and CFTIs participating though Central Seat Allocation Board will be based on All India Rank as explained above in section 2.10 subject to the condition that the candidate should have secured at least 75% marks in the 12thclass examination, or be in the top 20 percentile in the 12th class examination conducted by the respective Boards. For SC/ST candidates the qualifying marks would be 65% in the 12thclass examination. (JEE Main Information Bulletin)

Admission criteria to Undergraduate Engineering Programs at NITs, IIITs, Other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions, Institutions funded by participating State Governments, and other Institutions shall include the performance in the class 12/equivalent qualifying Examination and in the Joint Entrance Examination, JEE (Main). The Paper-1 (B. E./B. Tech.) of JEE (Main) will also be an eligibility test for the JEE (Advanced), which the candidate has to take if he/she is aspiring for admission to the undergraduate programmes offered by the IITs. The States of Madhya Pradesh, Nagaland and Odisha have joined JEE (Main) system. Therefore, the candidates seeking admission to the institutions in these states, which were earlier admitting based on their State Level Examination, are also advised to fill in the JEE (Main) – 2018 application form online.

IIT-JEE was renamed JEE-Advanced in 2013.  JEE-Advanced is the gateway to securing admission to any one of the 23 IITs. To appear for this test, an aspirant has to first qualify JEE (Main) and figure in the top two lakh candidates. Those who qualify JEE (Advanced), but do not find a seat in the engineering branch of their choice at an IIT, usually opt for National Institutes of Technology (NITs), which admit students based on all-India ranks of JEE (Main).

Admissions to IITs are conducted in two stages. The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) first conducts Joint Entrance Examination (Mains). Thereafter, candidates who secure all-India rank up to 2, 24,000 appear for JEE (Advanced), which is conducted by one of the IITs. The mains exams are held in a single day over two paper, with each paper being of 180 marks, containing 60 marks for Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. This year, IIT Kanpur conducted JEE (Advanced).

Students work hard day and night to score good marks. In fact, an examination is not final destination for students; however it leads towards a goal to live a respectful life during the result time. Good result is a symbol of self respect. Good result boosts up student’s confidence. It is indeed a reward for his/her hard work and consistent attitude. Good result is instant energy for students, parents, schools, teachers and other society members. It is in fact positive rays for all other stakeholders. Life never ends after an examination but surely its positive and negative results have long lasting impact for students and other stakeholders.

JEE Main and JEE Advanced Result for Admission in Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) India

 

Basically there is no alternative to hard work. Proper time management and proper practice help an individual to feel the beauty of being a successful person. He insisted that there is no need to study so many hours for scoring the highest marks only we need to study with full focus and concentration. We can score high marks with consistent efforts. Self study is the best method of learning. It is complete one to one interaction with the help of textbook. Self study helps us to develop an insight for the self and syllabus. Dedicating his success to his parents’ sacrifices, Pranav said that his mother helped him form his base and his father motivated him. The topper further said, “If you focus well, your study hours won’t really matter. Stay focused and calm. Have faith in your teachers and their guidance, and always ensure that your knowledge is conceptually sound.”

Kalash Gupta, a student of Amity International School, Saket, on Sunday secured the third rank in the IIT-JEE Advanced results. Gupta, who scored 97.6 per cent in his Class 12 exams, secured 325 out of 360 marks in the IIT JEE Advanced exam, the results of which were declared on Sunday. “Instead of slogging in the last few days, I made sure to study a few hours every day. During this time, I also made sure that I keep some time for my hobbies which helped me de-stress,” Gupta said (Indian Express)

Develop a habit for reading consistently for whole year; no matter even if only one hour in a day. I never find a miraculous person in my life who has achieved great result in an academic field by working hard at 11th hours of examination. Working very hard before an examination is completely destroying one’s self because magic happens with once and at once in millions of people, otherwise a person who studies consistently for whole academic year; s/he only creates wonder in life. A wise student studies rationally and practice well before an examination for a better result

Learning part and portion of a syllabus is incomplete way for an examination preparation. Syllabus is designed to cover in a certain period. Proper planning and execution of planning with the help of good study materials can help students to achieve good score. Good students study complete prescribed syllabus. They try to develop better understanding of complete syllabus. 

Nature wise, each student cares his/her future and wants to do well in studies, but conversion of thinking into action on real ground makes all the differences****** There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning. (Jiddu Krishnamurti) So what is next?

Use of Technology- Benefits of Using Appropriate Teaching Materials in the Classroom

Use of Technology- Benefits of Using Appropriate Teaching Materials in the Classroom

Technology is necessity of 21st century people. Our life is incomplete without technology. Technology helps us to grow physically, mentally and socially. Technology helps us to connect with each other. We are virtually attached with each other. We sense a real emotional bonding with each other. Widely availability of Desktop and Laptop in last decades ensured that technology is for everyone. Common people were excited to learn “how to operate it and how to use it”. Gradual development of Smart phone makes the task easy. Now people use Smartphone smartly. Of course, it is difficult to keep ourselves away from Smart phone even for short time. We feel a sense of incompleteness without Smartphone. Child starts feeling the importance of technology in life.

Integration of technology in the classroom for teaching learning process is essential and effective. Technology becomes integral part of education system. Wise teacher uses technology to ensure proper learning in the classroom. Teacher feels comfortable with technology. Student finds technology very useful for developing better understanding of different subject. Technological tools ensure effective teaching learning in the classroom.

Search engines give best result in fractions of second. Teachers as well as students face great difficulty in choosing appropriate content for the concerned topic. What can be the best ideas for selecting appropriate content for rational learning? What should be crucial factors for choosing right content? How can someone ensure the best learning outcome with the help of technology in the classroom?

People from all over world are uploading numerous teaching learning materials in various form i.e. Pdf, Word doc, images, videos and power point presentation through various platforms i.e. Slide share, YouTube etc. Without making familiar with the teaching materials before discussing/displaying and distributing can be the biggest chaos in the classroom.  We should be active, alert and sensible when we decide the content for teaching and learning process.

Students’ learning need

Learners are at the center in our teaching learning process.  A wise teacher considers students’ learning need before using technology in the classroom. If we decided to use technology in the classroom, we should consider “What is our students’ need? When we consider our students need, we consider on various factors which really hamper the students’ learning in the classroom.  Use of appropriate teaching online/offline/printed/softcopy etc increases students’ engagement and motivation; moreover it speed up learning experience in the classroom.

 Difficulty level of content/topic/text’s concept

Learning is a complex phenomenon. Technology supports our educational systems to enhance students’ learning experience through various technological tools. A well designed curriculum and syllabus cater the need of a nation. A well developed syllabus caters individual need in correspondence with culture. A wise teacher decides the difficulty level of content/topic/ text concept. S/he finds out materials through various available sources which fulfils the current need of students.

Students’ previous knowledge of content/topic/text

What is use of using technology in the classroom if we fail to evaluate our students’ previous knowledge of current teaching topic? Considering previous knowledge of our students help a teacher to decide appropriate teaching materials from where students can co-relate their existing knowledge with current teaching topic, from where they can proceed to the next level of learning.

Appropriate to students’ understanding level

A classroom consists of different types of learners’ i.e. slow learner, gifted learner and average learners. Their understanding level differs for various reasons. When we select supporting resource materials for the learners in the classroom, our resource materials should be able to fulfil mix groups of learners. A wise teacher considers his students’ level of understanding before using any technological tools and web materials in a classroom. Our main purpose to use technology in the classroom fulfill only when we cater the understanding level of each and everyone i.e. an English language teacher does intensive research before using appropriate teaching resource before entering in the classroom.

Appropriate to local learning environment (Social/Economical/National)

Every state and nation has its own cultures. A video on learning grammatical items on You Tube may be best suitable to America, Britain but may not be appropriate to China. Wise teacher uses appropriate resource materials for in a technology enabled classroom to maximize students’ learning experiences. A story from America may not be suitable to Indian students due to various reasons i.e. Name, surroundings, cultural background and language competency. A wise teacher customizes resources materials in a technology enabled classroom.

Appropriate language according to students’ level

Language is essential vehicle to learn new things. Age appropriate, understanding level appropriate and cultural appropriate language can enhance learning experiences in the classroom. What is use of using a Received Pronunciation (RP) and International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) enabled video in an Indian government school located in a remote area? Students uses mother tongue in the classroom. What is use of using printed materials consist of high standard words and sentences in a technological enable classroom? Our main objective to use technology in the classroom is to enhance students’ learning. Wise teacher assesses the appropriateness of resource materials language before using in the classroom.

Decide the content and practice well presenting before student

Choosing appropriate content and practice well before entering in the classroom establishes a teacher as fine person. Students take it positively. It helps teacher to manage the classroom systematically. What to do before entering in the classroom for using technology for maximizing learning and developing depth understanding of a particular teaching topic? Wise teacher selects appropriate different teaching resources for the classroom. S/he studies in depth. Teacher watches video in advance if s/he shows a video from You Tube and any other downloaded video. S/he prepares her classroom strategies i.e. how to use materials, when she will engage students, when she will ask questions, when she will conduct the assessment test etc to avoid confusing moment in the classroom. It is observed several times that a teacher has planned to show a power point presentation in the classroom but due to some technical reasons, he could not show it to the students, so it is better to keep materials in printed form if it is possible.

  • Read the text in depth
  • Watch the video in advance
  • Make your strategies to use material
  • Keep material in printed form if possible

Right preparation and proper planning maximize learning in the classroom. Teacher develops a better understanding for difficult topics with the help of technology in the classroom. Students always enjoy a wise subject teacher class.  So what ! Are you a wise teacher? Aren’t ——————–

CBSE Class 10 Result- Detailed Evaluation & Assessment for Parents, Teachers and School

CBSE Class 10 Result- Detailed Evaluation & Assessment for Parents, Teachers and School

                                                   CBSE Class 10 Result 2018

Hard work is the key to success. Students, school, teachers, parent and neighbors have high expectation for board result. Student works hard from day 1st at the beginning of new academic session. S/he has high expectation and high aspiration to achieve the highest score among thousands of students. CBSE, New Delhi is the trusted and authentic educational body of Indian government.

1990 decade witnessed a new assessment pattern. New assessment pattern equally distributed marks for objective and subjective questions pattern. Students started achieving high marks in board exam. Almost 1, 31,493 students scored more than 90% and 27,476 students out of  16, 24, 682 scored more than 95 percent in all over India but highest achievers possess positive aptitude  and attitude towards achieving their goals. They have their own vision and mission to do hard work. Good students do proper planning, proper time management and execute plans systematically throughout the year. Good students sacrifice their comfort level and work very hard. They consistently do self study to develop own understanding level for complete prescribed syllabus.

 This is 2nd decade of 21st century. People only discuss the highest scorer. Prakhar Mittal, Rimjhim Agrawal, Nandinin Garg and SriLekha Ji are four first position holders at national level. All four Indian GEMS scored 499/500.  Seven students secured the second position with 498/500 marks and 14 students secured third position with 497/500 marks. 27,476 students out of 16, 24, 682 scored more than 95 percent in all over India.   

It is in fact, not surprising that 1.31 lacs students scored more than 90% marks out of more than 16 lacs students all over India.  According to CBSE New Delhi, around 16, 24, 682 students appeared for the Xth board examination out of which 14, 08, 594 students passed.

Bhubaneshwar region secured fourth position with 88.12 percent out of ten CBSE regions.

 Students work hard day and night to score good marks. In fact, an examination is not final destination for students; however it leads towards a goal to live a respectful life during the result time. Good result is a symbol of self respect. Good result boosts up student’s confidence. It is indeed a reward for his/her hard work and consistent attitude. Good result is instant energy for students, parents, schools, teachers and other society members. It is in fact positive rays for all other stakeholders. Life never ends after an examination but surely its positive and negative results have long lasting impact for students and other stakeholders.

Basically there is no alternative to hard work. Proper time management and proper practice help an individual to feel the beauty of being a successful person. One of the toppers of class10th CBSE board examination Prakhar stated that he did not take any tuition. He believed in self study. He insisted that there is no need to study so many hours for scoring the highest marks only we need to study with full focus and concentration. We can score high marks with consistent efforts. Self study is the best method of learning. It is complete one to one interaction with the help of textbook. Self study helps us to develop an insight for the self and syllabus. (प्रखर कहते हैं कि उन्होंने कभी ट्यूशन नहीं लिया. बल्कि खुद ही पढ़ाई की. वो सेल्फ स्टडी को अहम बताते हैं. प्रखर कहते हैं, “अच्छे नंबर लाने के लिए घंटों पढ़ने की ज़रूरत नहीं पड़ती है. फ़ोकस के साथ कम समय में पढ़कर भी एक्ज़ाम में अच्छा किया जा सकता है.” (BBC Hindi)

Develop a habit for reading consistently for whole year; no matter even if only one hour in a day. I never find a miraculous person in my life who has achieved great result in an academic field by working hard at 11th hours of examination. Working very hard before an examination is completely destroying one’s self because magic happens with once and at once in millions of people, otherwise a person who studies consistently for whole academic year; s/he only creates wonder in life. A wise student studies rationally and practice well before an examination for a better result

 Learning part and portion of a syllabus is incomplete way for an examination preparation. Syllabus is designed to cover in a certain period. Proper planning and execution of planning with the help of good study materials can help students to achieve good score. Good students study complete prescribed syllabus. They try to develop better understanding of complete syllabus. One of the CBSE class 10th topper SreeLakshmi said that there was no big secret to her method of preparation and that the ‘good-ol-completing’ the syllabus at the time was the trick was the only principle she stuck to. She added that she never deprived herself of breaks, music, and movies in order to focus on her studies.

10th topper Yana Gupta who scored the highest marks  in Jaipur (98.8%) said that she did not like having a mobile phone and did not operate any social media accounts. She stayed away from social media as she isn’t interested in it. She told that “she had studied for four hours after school, and that, I feel, is enough if you are regular,” she said. “I don’t have an account on any of the social media platforms.”

Nature wise, each student cares his/her future and wants to do well in studies, but conversion of thinking into action on real ground makes all the differences****** There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to the moment you die, is a process of learning. (Jiddu Krishnamurti) So what is next?

Comprehensive Sex Education in School-“Why & How”

Comprehensive Sex Education in School

Education helps to develop a better understanding for the self. Educated person perceives self and society.  Education develops the ability to think independently, rationally, critically and creatively. Education imparts conscience. Conscience helps us to live a meaningful life. In fact we know a conscious person develops a better understanding for self and surrounding.

Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) is need of 21st century globalized children for living a healthy life. It is time to empower children and young age people without making differences among caste, creed and culture. Comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) is one of the unrecorded fundamental rights of children. We have rights to accept the thing as it exists.

Great philosopher and international spiritual ‘guru’ Rajnish quoted “truth is truth, and nobody should debar from it”. What is wrong with comprehensive sexuality education (CSE)? Tell it the way it is. What can we hide from our children? Children are very perceptive. Even if we do not tell them, they will discover it on their own. They are smart, intelligent and equipped with Smart phone.

World Wide Web dissolves all the layers and differences between caste and creed, educated and uneducated, literate and illiterate elite class and down trodden, poor and rich. World Wide Web has brought one of the greatest revolution. We are witness of this revolution.

Can we stop our child inquiring about sexuality? We cannot stop the natural flow of a river? Water always finds out its way to move ahead. It goes towards down and down. If we cannot stop natural journey of water, so what should be we do? A wise person channelizes the strength of water and gives it right direction. Sexuality possesses the nature of water. Comprehensive sexuality education channelizes intrinsic impulses of children in right direction.

Parent and teacher face a big question when it comes for educating their child about comprehensive sex education. We do not find a big difference between developed countries and developing countries. Only on difference I could find out that is legalizing age for giving consent for sex and marriage, other than this we work as moral police. Asian countries’ legal age of consent for sexual activity varies from age 12 to 21. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_Asia).

Countries Age of consent for sexual Activity
13 years , 15 years South Korea, North Korea
14 years Austria, Germany, Hungary, Italy and Prorogues
15 years Greece, Poland, Sweden
16 years Belgium, Netherlands, Spain and Russia
16 years United Kingdom
18 years India
14 years China

If globalized citizen consider that 13 years old boys and girls can give consent for intercourse then we need to think to provide comprehensive sex education to our kids’ right from tender age to save them from several unwanted diseases. Growth of a child from ignorant child to a smart child is changed due to prosperity in our life, better living standard and different food habits. Scientific research study reveals that maturity of a girl child can happens at the age of 7 years. (https://www.aap.org).  It is necessary to develop a comprehensive curriculum to develop appropriate knowledge and skills to love a healthy sexual life.

UNESCO recognized comprehensive sexuality education as an age-appropriate, culturally relevant approach to teaching about sexuality and relationships by providing scientifically accurate, realistic, nonjudgmental information* (UNESCO, 2009. International Technical Guidance on Sexuality Education).

What are common advantages of comprehensive sexuality education?

  1. Develop physically and mentally a healthy citizen
  2. Keep away from sexual transmitted disease/infections i.e. HIV,
  3. Reduce teenage unwanted pregnancy
  4. Reduce domestic violence

Education is the greatest remedies for coming out from several catastrophes in our life. Comprehensive sexuality education will empower children and young age people to take necessary precautions for living a healthy life. Precaution is better than cure.

Sexual desire and sexual intimacy are intrinsic and impulsive in its nature. We can hide and we can forcefully stop it but we cannot efface it. Rational education imparts skills, values and knowledge among us. Sexuality education addresses most sensitive aspects of human life. Comprehensive sexuality education programme should sensitize the young age people for developing positive values towards gender differences and awareness for own physical and mental development at this stage.

Age appropriate comprehensive sexuality education

Educated world citizen considers importance of age appropriate comprehensive sexuality education. What should be taught at particular age group children? How much should be taught at particular age group children? We are  living in a data world. Children smartly handle smart phone at the age of 5. Children become smart at the age of 8 and develop sensitive nature towards opposite sex. Comprehensive sexuality education curriculum should cater the need of these smart children.

Scientifically accurate comprehensive sexuality education

Generally children inquire different information with the materials available on Web World Wide (WWW) which may or may not be written by expert people. Web World Wide (WWW) has fathomless resources written on sexuality education. Expert people know the technical and scientifically importance of different physical development and different physical and mental need of human beings. To be Ignorant is better than incomplete knowledge. When we don’t know about something, we show hesitation to do experiments in our life due to various reasons but when we know something incompletely, incompleteness  gives us  a sense of achievement and confidence which leads us to experiment with the ideas that possibly leads to bad health i.e. (a) how to keep ourselves neat and clean during periods, (a1) myth and facts about periods (b) how to use contraceptive pill or other available medication to avoid pregnancy,(c) how to use condom to avoid unwanted pregnancy and other transmittable diseases i.e. HIV , (d) when to consult doctor for discussing different bodily changing symptoms, (e) how to keep hygiene during oral sex, (f) why to avoid doing sexual activities at age between (8-15-16-) (g) with whom should we discuss sex related problems at first, (h) What are dos and do not before indulging in sexuality, (i) how to share it with other, (j) other myth and facts about sexuality. Scientifically based education will help our children and young age people to live a healthy life.

Cultural appropriate comprehensive sexuality education

Human beings are socially connected to each other. We accept and respect the existence of other family members and society members. We are unique but we are culturally dependent on each other which help us to live in a peace and harmony. Sexuality is big taboo word for the society. It is universal truth but we are hiding so many things to other person due to cultural connection. Game of hide and seek leads to health hazards. Parents and teachers avoid healthy discussion on sexuality. We face a great question before starting a healthy discussion on sexuality with our children and young age people,(a) how to start it (b) who will start it. We face same dilemmatic situation as “who will bell the cat” due to cultural perspectives.

Cultural limitation and restriction are big hurdles for imparting comprehensive sexuality programme at world level. If comprehensive sexuality education programme is developed and customized to address different cultural limitation, then only we will be successful in imparting it for common people. Comprehensive sexuality education programme has a great vision to sensitize young generation, “how to keep ourselves healthy”. Comprehensive sexuality education programme sensitizes world citizen to be protective, active and alert for own healthy life.  

Comprehensive sexuality education on realistic ground

Sexuality is a taboo word for each one of us. We know its reality but we avoid decorating in words. We cannot neglect the reality to keep our young age general healthy. Sexuality related education programme will help our child to take a wise step. If we fail to educate them, then it will be more hazards for them. They inquire and investigate it through several unreliable sources i.e. friends, World Wide Web (www) and other cheap resources. Comprehensive sexuality education helps children to grow wisely and keep themselves healthy.

Comprehensive sexuality education with nonjudgmental information

Healthy and integrated children can think and perform better. How to impart comprehensive sex education is the biggest challenge for different policy and educational stakeholders? What are the specific words chosen for imparting sex education? Do words create negative impact on child?  Wise educator and parent use appropriate words to impart sexuality education. Wise educator use simple and concrete words to describe essential facts and concepts. Educator avoids a situation where child confuses himself with complex and confusing words. Essential truth of life should be shared in nonjudgmental form and our words and phrases consist of deep meaning based on facts.

Wise parent and educator express truth of life in as simple as sexuality “is”.

Lesson Plan for Teaching Gifted Students-Tips and Techniques for Effective Classroom Management

Nobody  is inferior and nobody is superior, one is just oneself. Educator identifies inherent capacity of students. He nurtures the inherent talent to become more efficient and more skilled;  to do something more innovative, more expressive, more novel for the welfare of the universe. A classroom consists of mix group of learners i.e. academically good, average and poor in academic performance. A classroom consists of different types of learners i.e. visual, auditory, kinesthetic so on and so forth.

Preparing good lesson plan which caters the need of different types of learners is essential quality of a teacher. Teacher prepares the best lesson plan for ensuring effective teaching learning in the classroom. It is really a challenging job for a teacher to cater the needs of all different types of students in a class. Gifted students always pose a challenge before a teacher. They are intelligent students. They have sharp memory. Gifted students develop understanding of a topic very fast. They complete the classwork and home work on time. Sometimes gifted students complete the task very soon in the classroom. They can not sit idle in the classroom. They may feel boredom. They start doing mischievous acts which may create discipline problem in the classroom.

A wise teacher prepares an intensive lesson plan for gifted students to execute a better classroom management skill. Advance planning of topic/lesson helps educator to create learning environment in the classroom. Teacher should use best available materials to cater the need of brilliant students of the class.

Best material related to the concerned teaching topic

A wise teacher prepares best teaching materials for his teaching topic. A teacher fulfills needs of all students of a classroom. No students’ progress should be hamper in a classroom. Teacher has to think progress of all students. It may take a little more time to develop understanding of teaching topic for average and below average performer of the class, however it may be possible that gifted learners will complete the task very soon; therefore a wise teacher produce advance material to the gifted students and guides them to complete it in certain time. Teacher engages gifted students through producing good materials with students. Teacher arranges all materials well in advance for handling gifted students in the classroom.

Advanced questions for good students i.e. worksheet, practice paper, HOTS questions

Wise teacher develops worksheet, practice paper and different HOTS questions for various gifted students in the classroom. Generally gifted students solve all simple and basic textual question easily. Teacher prepares HOTS questions. When general students solve factual and global questions in the classroom that time teacher distributes some HOTS questions to the gifted students. It keeps students engaged in the classroom. Usually teacher prepares all these questions in advance which saves teacher times and help him to manage the class effectively.

Extended challenging alternative activities for good students to enhance thinking skills

Activity based teaching learning process maximize learning in the classroom, but sometimes it creates chaos in the classroom if the teacher could not design alternative advanced activities for gifted students. Designing alternative advanced activities for the best performers of the class helps teacher to take necessary required action for all learners. It ensures maximum involvement of each and every learner in the classroom. Gifted students utilize maximum time in learning activities. As soon as gifted students complete a given task, teacher personally assign a new challenging task to solve in the classroom. When students become busy in performing advanced task, then teacher handles other students of the class smartly.

Proper time management for different tasks and activities

Gifted students are usually independent learners. They perform all the task within a time. Teacher prepares his lesson plan precisely and s/he designs task minutely with minute to minute activities. Teacher prepares lesson plan properly i.e. preparation/ ice breaking activities, presentation of topic , students activities during the lesson , evaluation of learning through different tools during the lesson and final assessment before final bind up of the class. He shares time limit with students and encourages students to finish the task withing the time.

Share instructions precisely to avoid confusion in the class

Wise teacher shares precise and concrete guidelines to avoid confusion among students in the classroom. His instructions quench the curiosity of all different types of learners in the classroom. They follow teacher’s guidelines to complete the task on time. Insturctions and guidelines related to learning activties should contains less words but it should be effective. It saves time in the classroom. Gifted students focus on completing tasks rather clarifying doubts over ‘how to complete the task’. Effective teacher uses his guidelines for effective learning outcomes in the classroom.

Nobody is inferior and nobody is superior.  No palm line and no thumb impression are same in this world. Every child is unique. Every child’s learning style is unique. We are unique.Teacher explores the fathomless world of knowledge before the gifted students.
