Saturday, December 2, 2017
DPS Jammu organized workshops for Primary teachers on ‘Joy of teaching and learning Mathematics’ and ‘English language Capacity Building.’ The Resource Persons were Ms. Pooja Pandoh and Ms. Ritu Gupta who had earlier attended similar workshops organized by the Delhi Public School Society’s HRD Centre, New Delhi. It was attended by around twenty five mother teachers of class I & II and English and Mathematics faculty-Classes III-V.
The teachers explained interesting methods of introducing new topics in the class and learnt techniques of making learning more joyful for the children. In Mathematics, activities were held for innovative teaching of Place Values, Fractions, Dodging Tables, Odd-Even numbers, etc. The resource person said that while learning the children may make mistakes but these mistakes must be accepted and respected, while the stress should be laid on developing 3C’s in children-Courage, Curiosity and Creativity.
In English, the aim was to revitalize the approach of teachers towards teaching of the English language, as the language has become the operating system for the global conversation. The focus was laid on refreshing the latest techniques of ELT and developing reading abilities of the young learners.
Both the workshops were interactive and used audio-visual aids and videos clippings.
Principal, DPS Jammu, Ms. Ruchi Chabra appreciated both the Resource Persons for sharing their knowledge with their co-faculty and said that such sessions on knowledge sharing and exploration would enable the teachers to reflect and enhance their own knowledge and at the same time to guide their students well. Headmistress, Ms. Meenu Gupta congratulated the whole team of teachers.
Hon’ble President, RCT, Sh. M.K Ajatshatru Singh Ji, Hon’ble PVC, Kunwrani Ritu Singh Ji and Hon’ble Director, Sh. S.S Sodhi Ji extended their best wishes to staff for organizing this wonderful workshop.
