  METHODOLOGY


We follow a well structured CBSE curriculum.Language proficiency is given utmost importance as communication is a strong tool of expression. Our campus language is English and we provide Hindi, Tamil and Arabic to strengthen the language capability of the child.Play way method and activity based learning is followed in KG and Primary classes. Worksheets were regularly made available in almost all the subjects to strengthen the retention of learning. Assignments are given to encourage and develop independent learning skill and to complement a particular field of study. Focus is given to critical areas of learning to fulfill the multi focused requirements.


It is much easier to manage the bulky classroom if it is divided into groups. Each group has a leader and co-group leader and they may be instructed to mind their groups. Different activities can be assigned to the groups and the group leaders may act as coordinators. Thus the teacher may save a lot of time and energy in the classroom control and utilize it, to make creative task or activities for the students.


Teacher is not the only source of learning, for the students. Learning is a continuous process and students learn a lot of things in their peer groups. The group teaching method provides an opportunity to interact with the group and other students in the classroom and students learn without any outer pressure. It is a shift from make him learn to let him learn.


The group leaders and co-group leaders are not selected permanently. These posts are rotated among the group members. Each member of the group is given chance to become Group Leader for one month as per his/her overall performance in the classroom. Co-leaders are selected in rotation for one week. Even low performers are given chance to enact as co-leaders. Thus, each member of the group tries his/her best to improve performance so that he/she may become group leader next month. The best group title is awarded every month and this helps to improve inter-group performance of the students. Collective efforts of a group to go ahead of another group, creates a healthy and competitive learning environment in the classroom. A-graders are awarded STARS. Other students work hard and try their best to perform well to get STAR badges.


The group teaching method promotes self study and helps peers to learn. The high achievers of the group teach the slow learners of their groups so that the group can compete with other groups in the classroom. This helps the high achievers to retain their learning and develops better understanding of concepts and on the other hand the slow learners get individual attention for better performance.


Group study method is best for huge classrooms where the teacher is unable to give individual attention to each and every student in the classroom. Especially in such a case where mental level of the students is not similar. In Group Teaching Method, teacher acts as supervisor and facilitator. Paying attention to weak students as well as high achievers is much easier in group teaching method.


It is not possible to involve the whole class in any activity at once. In Group Teaching Method, small groups can be given different activities and individual participation in the activity can be assured. Each member of the group can be assigned a specific task to complete and thus the Group Teaching Method emphasizes on Activity Oriented Teaching-Learning Process in the classroom.

Lesser use of blackboard: Blackboard should be used only if a particular concept is to be taught to the whole class. It is a good teaching tool and very helpful to explain concepts to the class but not so good for tiny tots who want individual attention and involvement in learning process where not only eyes and ears but their hands and hearts are to be involved in the process of learning. The group teaching encourages lesser use of blackboard and more activities in the classroom

Learning more than teaching: Learning is a continuous process. Teacher is to facilitate such an environment where the process of learning can be pushed in the right direction. Teaching in group emphasizes on learning more than teaching. Student Interact with each other and learn in their peer groups.
