Teachers, the very lifeline of all Akal Academies; in order to maintain their upkeep in their responsibility to teach the rural students in the most utmost way so as to make them much competent to secure a place in mainstream with the city youth, always stay in an ‘acquiring mode’.
The culture of being a constant learner (i.e. a Sikh), does not only include students, but teachers too. All our teachers keep close with the teachers’ community, through which they observe regular meetings within the academies, where each one of them put forth their experiences, suggestions, new techniques and share the outcomes with other teachers of other academies.
The collective outcomes are then shared with the honorable Advisor – Health & Education, who in turn evaluates these innovative ideas and suggestions and finally designs new guidelines/policies and floats it across academies with instructions for immediate application.
“The indifferent environment of different rural villages at times require customized teaching techniques, be it explaining principles of science, algorithms of Maths or even simply teaching a language for that matter, can require a lot different from the city school procedures to be adapted to fit into the rural frame of schooling”, cited a teacher, who recently proposed several innovations and reforms in teaching English language.
“For an instance, you can take the case of teaching English – in normal city environment, the task is a lot easier as the urban environment of youth – like habits of watching English programs, music, friend-circle that speaks English, etc, provides a natural ancillary platform for practical application and practice of the language, especially spoken, which virtually eradicates the need of emphasizing much upon the spoken part, whereas the social environment in villages call for special measures & concepts to be designed to fulfill this environmental gap an inorganic way”, expressed Mrs Manpreet Kaur, teacher Akal Academy, Cheema.
Below are some pictures from a session of teachers’ training workshop held at Akal Academy Uddat Saidewala where teachers received critical teaching technique adaption update instructions for Mathematics & English Subjects by the honorable Advisor – Health & Education; post workshops, the head of training submits feedback upon its understanding and effectiveness to the advisory committee.
