II ANNUAL PEDAGOGICAL PLAN 2019 – 20
Roles of Pedagogical Leaders:
- Support Teaching and Learning in Schools This involves instructional leadership so as to support classroom teachers in performing their major role of executing the curriculum, transforming teaching and learning by establishing the norms of persistent quality improvement. Implementation of prescribed curriculum and transformation of teaching methods, updation of latest tools and ideas. This ensures mandatory adoption of learning outcomes based on teaching and learning in all the classes.
Support Classroom Teachers for implementing the curriculum
Breaking of subjects into number of modules. It will be beneficial to the children if the learning targets are defined in terms of different types of outcomes such as skills, behavior, knowledge, attitudes, values and interestsSteps for Planning Learning targets
All learning targets should be expressed in observable behaviour or skills (Target behaviour, Pre-requisite skills, Instruction and Materials required, Criteria of Success)Setting Teaching Priorities:
Help teacher to consider carefully the order in which learning targets should be learnt. Logically learning targets requiring lower level skills should be put before those requiring higher level skills.Specifying Baseline Assessment Procedures
This is to specify the procedures to identify the current skill level or pre requisite skills the children. Help the teacher to choose appropriate step for the children according to their prerequite skills, so as to bridge the gap between their pre-requisite skills and the target skills.
To teach target skills effectively. Suggested teaching approaches:
- Modeling: Children learn by imitating others behaviour. It underlies most of the learning activities
- Discussion: This approach often comes under group teaching. Children can learn to look into problems and are motivated to think and express their own views and at the same time listen to other children’s views, so that they can review their own. We should ensure that all children actively participate and help the children realize the importance of accepting other people’s views.
- Task Analysis: Break down the target skills into smaller steps according to the abilities of the children, may be the learning needs too. Chaining can also be instructed like breaking down a target skill into a series of steps performs an action.
- Discrimination Learning: When target skill to be learnt involves choosing the right answer, discrimination learning is a more effective approach.
- Induction: This is an approach to help the children form a holistic concept from the characteristics of different things. The children are thus trained to observe the various characteristics of things – their similarities, differences as well as relationships and then exercise induction.
- Information gathering: Children may sometimes lack information required to analyze the problems they come across. Activities such as organizing parties or picnic would help them understand the procedures of information gathering and its importance. Teachers can help them gather relevant information from various sources like other teachers, parents, newspapers, library and other medias
- Ways to teach target skills:
- Prompting: This skill can be used at any stage of the porogramme. Physical guidance, physical prompts, gestures, verbal prompts, eye pointing etc. prompts should only be used when required and should be faded out as soon as children attain mastery.
- Shaping: Increase in precision in the behaviour to be performed. For example teaching children to thread a needle with a big eye using thick thread and then gradually increasing the precision by using an ordinary needle and sewing thread
- Fading: This means gradual removal of various prompts as the children begin to master the target behaviour. At the initial stage, the teacher can use prompts with more help. Then at a later stage, he can use prompts with less help.
- Generalization: when children know how to apply the knowledge or skills they
have acquired to new situations, they have achieved generalization. The ultimate
purpose of generalization is to reinforce the children’s social adjustment. For
example, when a child applies the table manners he has learnt at school to the
environment of his home or a restaurant, generalization is achieved.
- Observing children’s behaviour, planning goals and targets appropriate to their ages, levels of development and interests and building on their areas of strength.
- Using activities which are as practical as possible.
- Using situations familiar to the children and those which they can experience in their everyday life.
- Making the ;children feel secure and willing to express themselves and giving them opportunities to learn by doing.
- Breaking down a task into simple steps to make easy learning.
- Providing opportunities for children for direct contact, for manipulating real objects or relating learning experiences to real life situations.
- Using various media extensively and varying the teaching approaches and techniques according to individual learning needs.
- Record Keeping: An appropriate curriculum design should include ongoing assessment and a clear record of progress. This will ensure that teaching procedures will be consistent and continuous. This consistency and continuity will in turn insure that the planned programmes will match the actual progress of the child.
- Organization of Resources: The success of the curriculum development depends on the effective utilization of the resources
in the school and in the community.
All staff members should contribute to the curriculum development in terms of knowledge and experience. Through regular contacts with the children, the teacher can identify the range of knowledge, concepts, skills and attitudes which need to be developed in them. Understanding of the children’s learning needs will enable the teacher to see the different parts of the curriculum as an integral whole.
Parents are also valuable resources of the school. They should be encouraged to participate in curriculum development and to follow-up at home on what their children have learnt at school, thus reinforcing their learning. This joint effort between the school and the parents will contribute much to the education of the children.
The effective use of space in the school helps to develop in the children an awareness, understanding and appreciation of their surroundings. Physical constraints can be overcome by careful planning and flexible utilization of teaching bases and common areas.
Community resources should be utilized for teaching purposes as well. Appropriate use of these resources will help to enhance the children’s understanding of the people around them, their role in society and the relationship between people and their environment. Therefore, facilities available n the community should be used or introduced to the children to enrich their life experiences
- Time Allocation: It is one of the major concerns in curriculum planning. We can decide how curriculum is to be organized in terms of content and time allocation. Basically, we should be flexible to that various needs of different schools, classes and individual children can be met.
In designing a time-table, apart from classroom availability, options etc. others like children’s abilities and learning needs should also be given importance. Priority of learning should be given to the skills and emphasis in training should vary according to the present and future goals of the children. The understanding of the children’s needs will facilitate time-table arrangements, with due weight given to various subject areas.
Apart from basic and functional academics, the children also need to develop their capacity to respond appropriately to sensory and social experiences, regardless of their ages and abilities. This involves the exploration and understanding of aesthetic and creative experiences, which may be integrated in any part of the curriculum. Music, Art and Craft and Physical Education contribute particularly to such development. The children also need to acquire these skills as leisure time activities. Emphasis should be given to both junior and senior sections of the school while allocating time to these areas of learning.
- Curriculum Transaction We follow Chrysalis curriculum for Pre Primary and Classes I and II for English, Math and EVS. Tamil Nadu state board prescribed Tamil book for second language and Third language Hindi as per NCERT.
- For Classes III to Class X only NCERT books are followed for the core subjects. Students from Class V to VIII write the exams prescribed by Hindi Prachar Sabha, Trichy for Hindi (Prathmic, Madhyama, Rashtrabasha) and also the usual Periodic tests and Terminal assessments.
- Teacher DevelopmentDevelopment of teachers is done through in-service training programmes. Principal, Academic co-ordinators and senior teachers regularly give subject enrichment programs for the teachers. Teachers also attend various training programs conducted by COE, CBSE and various sahodhayas. We collaborate with organizations like Chrysalis and Next education to provide orientation programs to teachers on regular basis.
- Morning AssemblyThe school begins with the morning assembly for which twenty minutes are taken. Assembly includes School prayer, Flag hoisting (Mondays and Fridays only) followed by Pledge, Thirukural, Thought for the day, News reading, special activity based on the Theme of the month.

- Assessment A well structured curriculum should enable the school to follow a procedure of teaching intervention, incorporating assessment, programme planning and evaluation. To achieve this aim, criterion-referenced assessment designed by the teacher is recommended. Assessment is not something external to the learning environment or something added at the end of the learning process for administration purpose or parents reporting. It is an integral part of effective learning, where the children are provided with a feedback on their progress.
- Purposes of Assessments
- To identify the children’s needs.
- To help the teacher to plan next.
