MINIMUM LEARNING PROGRAMME - MLP
What is the minimum learning expected out of a child from a particular unit / concept? Every section of the unit is condensed into MLP notes that contain a summary of the entire unit and its interrelation with the other units. This intensive and innovative practice not only works as an excellent time saver for students but gives them a comprehensive understanding of the concept at a glance.
Innovation in pedagogy is taken to the level of excellence through subject narrations, which is based on the premise that teaching learning process must not be a suspense unfolding every day but an informed process. Students are given an overview of the entire syllabus, the teaching methodology, the system & pattern of evaluation and timeline. Students come to class fully prepared, absorbing and analyzing completely. Class room learning becomes more involved and interesting.
This practice is followed in the Co Scholastic and Sports domain as well, giving students a glimpse of the way each respective unit will unfold during the course of the session.
LEARNERS' ENRICHMENT FOR ACADEMIC PROGRESSION - LEAP
LEAP is a comprehensive student centric plan for the second phase of Online Teaching-Learning, implemented as Virtual Engagement 2.0 with three important components-
Step 1: Asynchronous material sent to our learners, including an interactive PPT/ Audio/Video before initiating a topic to get them familiar with the concept in advance before it is taken up as an active lesson.
Step 2: Synchronous learning wherein all the learners come together at a specific time period for lesson presentation. This makes it easier for the learner to grasp the concept and the teacher gets a base to build on.
Step 3: The learners are further aided in smaller groups based on their pace of learning by the teacher who acts as the facilitator in joining the dots to complete the picture with application based and Higher Order Thinking Skill activities.
