The Foundation School actively participates in workshops dealing with enhancing the quality of education. In the same direction, a workshop organised by Macmillan Education on 22 November 2019 at Janakpuri was attended by Ms. Shivani Kaushik and Ms. Kanika Batheja, of the English department.
The workshop was conducted by Ms. Alka Rai, ELTS Resource person at Oxford University Press, who introduced various bases upon which a teacher must work.
Teachers were introduced to teaching techniques that strive to streamline the skills of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Students have varied needs, hence each child’s development becomes the central concern of a teacher. Ms. Alka Rai, described the processing of English teaching-learning as a process of factual, inferential, evaluation and extrapolative stages. The primary need of a teacher’s development for improvised and timely upgradation of teaching methodology, necessitates that she must work on the tools of language i.e. pronunciation, rhythm, tone, intonation, word stress and contractions. The teacher’s lesson plans are her routes or GPS trackers to detect ways of exploring to reach out to students to enhance language learning.
The workshop thus provided our teachers with guidance on how to keep abreast with the latest tools in order to be effective.
