Arwachin International School always provides opportunities
to its teachers to experience such a platform where they could learn to enliven
their teaching learning process. So as to arouse enthusiasm and interest in the
children, keep their concentration, broaden their knowledge of the English
Language and the ability to use it with comfort, two teachers, Mrs Prabhjyot Kaur & MrsBhawna Sharma attended an English Workshop on 1st December, 2018. The
resource person was Ms. Kavita Iyer Vazir,
an eminent educationist who addressed educationists from various leading
institutions at a session hosted by Macmillan
Education on “Skill Based Teaching Learning
– decoding the communication skills.”
The seminar aimed to achieve the following:-
identify the 21st century skills for the 21st century
raise awareness about elements involved in skill based learning.
share task based activities for a learner-centred classroom.
understand receptive skills and productive skills.
Teachers were engaged in a day long interactive
session on the holistic language development of children, improving their
Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing skills. The teachers were made aware
of the major elements involved in both receptive and productive skills.The
session reinforced that the play way or activity method is the most effective
way to induce learning since seeing is believing – doing is retaining, so by
the end of the day teachers were equipped with a number of activities that can
help our students attain the various skills and sub-skills required to master
the four basic language skills of Listening, Speaking, Reading & Writing. The
seminar really proved to be a great experience.
