24th June 2016 – Gender Sensitivity

Gender is a social construct, not a biological one, and discrimination on this basis is consequently difficult to assess and to address. Distinctions based on biological sex can be measured statistically, whereas gender differentials entail more subtle distinctions on male and female roles. Achieving gender parity (equal numbers of boys and girls) in school is just one step towards gender equality in and through education.

To equip teachers with knowledge, skills and methodologies that promote gender equality, workshop was organized on 24 June 2016, conducted by the school counselor, Ms. Avantika Sharma.

The aim of the workshop was to emphasize on the fact that Gender Sensitivity is not about comparison between girls and boys. At the same time, education for gender sensitivity benefits members of both sexes.

It helped the teachers to determine which assumptions in regard to gender are valid and which are stereotyped generalizations. To facilitate better understanding, the concepts of gender, the basic terms associated like Gender Equality, Gender Equity, Gender Discrimination etc. were also discussed. Overall, the session helped to attain a Gender neutral environment and laid a strong foundation for such discussions in the future.

There are many ways that little kindergartners can be engaged into an activity that is so gripping and enriching. Circle time is one of them. 22nd November 2014 was the day which started off with an elaborate session on the CIRCLE TIME as an engaging activity for the young learners. The session was headed and conducted by our Academic Head, Ms. Sumana Dutta and teachers from kindergarten to class II were party to it. Since, there is no beginning or end, every individual in a circle is equal and belongs to the whole group. Expanding on this idea, the most successful circle times include acceptance, openness and non-judgmental expression of ideas.

The first stage that is the MEETING UP was initiated by Ms. Sumana Dutta by an informal activity wherein every teacher expressed their views and feelings about their co-teacher and spoke about the qualities they witnessed them. This activity saw a positive impact on all towards the close of this activity.

This was followed by the next stage that is the OPENING UP wherein the teachers were reminded of their favourite student with whom they thought they had connect in one form or the other. Be it the quietest of the students, the hyper active one or the one struggling through their learning stage, teachers have their soft notch for them.

Next to follow was the most awaited and sought after PRAISE stage which actually forms the basis of a balanced development of any individual. Taking this to the kindergartener level will definitely boost his/her confidence and willingness to participate in future endeavours without being hesitant.

As there is a full stop to every sentence, this session too saw its CLOSE with passing a tight hand shake with warm feelings in everyone’s heart for one another. So, as elaborated by our Academic Head, the various stages of the circle time were well executed and knowledge thus gained will definitely go a long way with all the teachers in imparting knowledge to the little ones.

This was followed by interactive sessions of role plays to understand the ill effects of labeling a child. A discussion followed where the teachers who were labeled spoke about what emotions they felt. After this the counselor took the time of driving home the point of labeling, where the need to focus on the why the child behaves inappropriately is the main point rather than the child being labeled as ‘bad’, ‘undisciplined’, or ‘naughty’. She emphasized the point that tags or labels have a snow-ball effect, re-affirm the problem even more, kill self-esteem and confidence, and have life-long effects. After this intense session the counselor introduced a game for teachers where they were given a balloon and a pin. The game instruction was that they had to blow their balloon and hold it in one hand and hold the pin in the other. After everyone was ready, they had to protect their balloon and break the other participants’ balloons. The lesson behind the game was that the balloon represented one’s ego and the pin was the tiny situation or action or word that was enough to hurt another’s ego. The counselor encouraged and motivated the teachers to work as a team and to be sensitive and caring towards the feelings of their colleagues and other staff so as to increase productivity and team spirit.

Finally the counselor talked about the topic of teachers being role models and mentors. To begin this topic, she engaged the teachers in a discussion about going down the memory lane to describe about one teacher who influenced them positively in life and one negatively. A time of nostalgic revelations followed where every teacher re-lived their school days. The speaker then emphasized that it is the duty and responsibility of a teacher to maintain professionalism in his/her conduct and general demeanor. The fact that even as a teacher respect must be commanded from the students and every teacher has an audience that is always watching him/her constantly. The workshop ended on a high note where a video from the movie “To sir with love” was shown. This true story of an inspiring teacher epitomizes the role of an empathetic teacher who finally wins over his students and makes them better human beings. This workshop set the right tempo and drive to begin the new academic semester.

22nd June 2013 - Life Skills Workshop

Sachdeva Global School has entered into a partnership with the PROMISE group who gave an inspiring life skills workshop conducted by Mr. Lokesh N. Darira and Mr. Kamaljeet Singh for all the teachers. The topic they brought alive in this interactive workshop was how to develop, “Innovative Teaching Techniques”. Their main aim was to enable the teachers to empower their students with their acquired life skills. Mr. Lokesh, the main speaker started with an important fact that seventy-five percent of a child’s personality is formed by 13-14 years. Many techniques were influenced by what the author ‘Dale Carnegie’ has followed in his books. The speaker said that the teachers who smile at the beginning of their classes tend to teach, manage and sell better. He practically asked teachers to motivate shy students to smile more to help them overcome their anxiety in public. He also emphasized upon the fact that for a speaker, the first seven seconds are crucial in connecting to any audience as a speaker in front of a group. Mr. Lokesh encouraged the teachers to create a class culture, where techniques like ‘one more time’, ‘double clap’, and ‘left arm’, etc. could be inculcated. The speaker also talked about learning is a social activity where 40% of the matter can be assimilated by the students if teachers are innovative with the layout of their lesson plans and they are more physically agile in the classroom.

The speaker challenged the teachers to move out of their comfort zones and be more creative in the way they teach their students. He brought out the concept of ‘charisma triangle’ where if a person is one who smile more, is cool, calm and contained, he/she can transform himself/herself into a charismatic leader. He also highlighted the fact that as a teacher and as a charismatic leader one must never use foul language or physically abuse another individual. Students should come to school for the right reasons he highlighted. The concept of each individual being incredible was asserted and a task was given for every teacher. The speaker motivated the teachers that after they get ready every morning to say “I am incredible and incredible things will happen to me today”. This self-motivation technique played a role in the success of the speaker’s life as per his testimony.

The other concept that Mr. Lokesh was about learn, practice, teach. The three phases in which a teacher can more than double her pupils learning capacity in class. He also gave some techniques on public speaking- ABC (audience, body language, content) and TIS (topic, importance and speaker). Using these techniques a surprise activity was conducted by Mr. Kamaljeet Singh where a few teachers who got simple topics were given the opportunity to speak about it using these techniques. Overall it was a very motivating workshop where many useful techniques and skills were imbibed. The teachers were oriented to the life skill training and made aware of the upcoming life skill workshops for classes III to XII. Thus, with an open and inspired mindset the workshop ended with renewed energy and vigor.

21st June - 2013 - Workshop on Story Telling

With the vision of “making a positive change in society by using storytelling as a tool of culture and learning”; the Academic Head, Mrs. Sumana Dutta took an extensive session with the teachers of classes Buds to II. The workshop aimed at motivating the teachers to take up storytelling professionally as well as add entertainment value by using it as an art form.

The workshop began with the teachers revisiting their childhood memoirs of the bedtime or school story telling sessions. The sketches drawn by the teachers of their favourite story were shuffled and redistributed. Each participant had to arrive at the name of the story by looking at the illustration and taking positive help by the illustrator herself.

The importance of body language and voice modulation in story telling was drawn out by various activities. Soon, all the teachers were geared up for the final session, but, before that, Sumana Ma’am herself narrated a beautiful story, which was full of emotions, expressions and voice modulation. During this session, teachers could relate to the story emotionally. They were then made to illustrate the part of the story which appealed to them the most. Sharing of understanding was done. This session helped the teachers understand and appreciate the essentials to be a great story teller and the ingredients for an amazing story narration session.

Finally, it was time when the teachers were divided into two groups and given a task of creating a story, developing it and enacting it out. This activity saw a great deal of energy, emotions and creativity.

By the end of the day-long workshop, teachers had a sense of discovery of their own creative abilities and they were inspired to use them in their day-to-day teaching effectively.

20th June 2013 – Workshop for Teachers on Class Management

A very interesting and in-depth talk was given by Mrs. Anu Singh, on the challenges teachers have to face in a school/classroom environment. She began with a tea cup analogy where she said in order to learn new things one needs to unlearn certain things, just like a cup of tea that is full cannot be filled further. As per studies, children come with pre-recorded messages of 24,000 on an average and they tend to behave in a manner they are familiar with at home. She also mentioned that parents often unrealistically expect a teacher to have a magical wand that will transform their child into someone like “Einstein” and the likes of him. It is the duty of every teacher to remind the parent that she needs a reasonable amount of time and cooperation from the parents to bring about any transformation in children.

She also highlighted the fact kids tend to differ in the way they behave at home from the way they do in school. Many children expect the same attention they receive at home even in a classroom setting which leads to behavioral problems. The fact that parents tend to be pushy with their children in today’s competitive world was highlighted. Parents need to be encouraged to trust the teachers and their ways of teaching as a professional. She also stressed on the fact that every child has a unique personality and an in-built disposition to react to different life situations. Teachers need to be sensitive to that and try and bring out the best in the child.

A child’s IQ is always not related to his/her academic performance only. As teachers we need to be sensitive not to label children. As educationists we need to focus on the main problem/issue rather than on the symptoms. Mrs. Singh gave the example of polarized parents from the movie- “Taare Zameen Par”. Many times without us realizing children come with a lot of emotional baggage and thereby it makes the kids act those frustrations out in the class. She impressed upon the fact that respect starts at home and parents need to be role models for their children, so they can imbibe respect for their elders at an early age.

She also brought to light the fact that in today’s world “the tuition-culture” devalues the efforts of the teachers in school. School is becoming a place to have fun, making attention span of children dip lower. These parallel classes create more issues or problems in the school setting. Teachers were urged to take time to know their students. Discipline in a child needs to be inculcated. She also advocated the fact that a teacher must make clear lines with regards to a teacher-student relationship. Abusive language must be discouraged. The need to sensitize parents about the effects of media exposure on a child was emphasized. There is a great requirement to boost teaching of life skills to students these days.

Overall, she motivated all the teachers to be insightful about their own selves first and learn to be more empathetic towards their students.

20th June 2013 - Workshop on Team Building

Sachdeva Global School, Dwarka, kick started the new session by conducting a special workshop on 20 June 2013, for teachers that focussed on Team building. The workshop also worked as an ice breaker for teachers who have joined the school in the current session. It provided a platform for teachers to interact and get to know their colleagues better.

The workshop was spearheaded by the head of our school, Mrs. Novita Chopra. It was an interactive session involving both group and individual activities. The session commenced on a light note with a fun introductory activity; what does your Ringtone say about you? The workshop consisted of various activities such as observation skills activity; this involved teachers to fill a questionnaire related to their immediate surroundings. There was another interesting activity that focussed on communication skills. It gauged the perception and understanding of teachers vis a vis what is being communicated. The Three word describer activity tested the mutual understanding of teachers and how well they know each other. In this activity each teacher wrote three words describing self and members of another group had to guess which description corresponds to whom.

The focus of these activities was not only to enhance teacher’s mutual understanding but also to bring home the importance of good team dynamics and how it impacts the work culture and overall efficiency of an organization.

In this context, certain activities also focussed on the importance of effective communication and the need to bridge the gap between information, perception and actual understanding. Good communication plays a pivotal role in the success of any organization and is essential for effective team work. To illustrate this point, an activity was conducted where few teachers were required to close their eyes and make a triangle by folding a paper as per the instructions given. In the end they were asked unfold the paper and it was discovered even though all of them were given the same instruction each one of them had folded the sheet in a different manner to make a triangle.

Mrs. Chopra also emphasised on how such activities help in establishing a stronger bond between co-workers which in turn increases collaboration among them during daily activities. It was an informative yet fun workshop that made us all realize the criticality of team efforts for individual and organizational growth.

‘I want my children to understand the world, but not just because the world is fascinating and the human mind is curious. I want them to understand it so that they will be positioned to make it a better place.’
Howard Gardener

Gone are the days when we used to talk about intelligence, we talked about IQ alone. Today, in this ever-evolving world, where making your presence felt is of utmost importance, the best way out is to show the depth of your grey matter.

In this view, teachers of SGS participated in an In-house workshop headed by school’s Academic head Mrs. Sumana Dutta Sarkar. The session was started by a couple of icebreaker activities wherein teachers of Nursery and Pre Primary levels were involved in a Phonetic drill while playing ring-a-roses and another being the best one-Talking positive things about the co-teacher by each one of them.

This was followed by an activity wherein the teachers were divided in different groups and experienced ‘Student centric’ and ‘Teacher centric’ methods of teaching young learners. In this process, teachers agreed to the fact completely that student can learn more effectively if they undergo an experience themselves.

Multiple Intelligence inclusive of Moral, Linguistic, Logical-mathematical, Musical, Bodily-kinesthetic, Spatial, Intrapersonal, Naturalist, Spiritual and Existential Intelligence - were also elaborated in detail.
