The Curriculum Corner

At a recently concluded seminar for teachers, I encountered a new term called the Curriculum Corner. A bit of search on internet yielded interesting results, something which I would like to share with everyone.

Curriculum Corner is a platform for creative people to come together and share their ideas and techniques of delivering academic content in novel ways. This helps the teaching community, in particular, to collaborate and integrate the best ideas, and weave them in their own curriculum to make it more effective. Curriculum Corner acts as a common repository of resources related to different subjects for a wide range of audience. As a teacher, one could find unconventional ways to deliver the content and make it more engaging for the students. Students can also access these corners and use it for a better understanding of the subject-matter.

I discovered these corners on many popular social media platforms like Face book and Pinterest etc. A Curriculum Corner can be setup in multiple ways, like in a school, within a community or on web for larger access. For example, we can also create such platforms in a physical form in a school by compiling creative ideas of teachers, students and parents and make it available for everyone to use it as per their needs.

In a constantly evolving world, the ultimate aim of a teacher is to teach their students in the most effective ways and help them realise their own potential. Hence, there is a need to be creative and innovative in their methods of delivering the curriculum, within the existing resources. Curriculum Corner may end this quest for creativity and result in a more enriching teaching and learning experience.

Visit To Sai Shiksha Sansthan

Written By: Satvinder Kaur

Visiting Sai Siksha Sansthan reminded me of my fathers teachings – Happiness is not a commodity which you can buy, borrow or steal. It is a feeling, which comes from within and contentment is the seed of it.

Sai Siksha Sansthan Visits

Students of Sai Siksha Sansthan are the reflection of this thought. I felt like meeting a small troop of not only well disciplined but self disciplined, well dressed, well behaved and happy students. They were fully contented with the minimum resources they had and getting a pencil or an eraser as a gift brings a broad and bright smile on their serene faces.

Sai Siksha Sansthan Visits

The sole objective of the Sansthan is to nurture and mould young minds into civilized citizens. Many students were from nearby villages whose parents were mostly illiterate, but they entrusted the school with the responsibility of educating their wards and are not inclined to interfere or dictate terms. The school has not only achieved its goal by taking the onus on its shoulders but also strengthened and maintained the bond of trust between school and parents for the last 25 years.

Sai Siksha Sansthan is a perfect example of bilateral, fruitful and harmonious relationship between society and school.

Sai Kripa Sansthan’ I was part of a trip organized by the school to ‘Sai Kripa Sansthan’ which has been a life changing experience as it was filled with emotions and sentiments.Grades 2-6 along with three other teachers visited it. The school is situated on the outskirts. It was a brick building with an open area at the centre. The school is run by Mrs. Kiran . We were taken by surprise when we entered the school as there was complete silence and it seemed that there were not many children in the school. But to our utter dismay all the classes were having full attendance and the children were attentive and disciplined.

We took a round of the school; saw their science lab, computer lab and the library. What was an eye opening experience was that they were utilizing the limited resources they had very wisely and sincerely. It was a learning experience for all the children and also for us. I had the opportunity to interact with grade 5 students. It was a pleasure beyond measure to see the confidence of the children.

In the end we gave them the items collected during the ‘Joy of the Sharing’ week in our school and could see the happiness and gratitude in their actions. After the visit now I can really say that hard work + dreams + dedication = success. We all have so much to learn in so lessa time and I believe that the journey of learning in never ending.

My Views On Parenting

All of us want to be a good parent and try and imbibe the best values in our child. In our own way we try to coach and guide our child to become a better person. But, is there a best way to do that? Perhaps not.

As each one of us is different, we have our own ways to impart the best knowledge and value. At The Manthan School we also try to do that in a structured way. In this note I am sharing my views on what is effective parenting. My views are a summation of what I have learnt being a mother, observing other parents and reading about how be a good Parent. As Sadhguru says, “There is no one standard rule for all children. Different children may need different levels of attention, expression of love, and toughness. Suppose I was standing in a coconut garden and you ask me, “How much water per plant?” I’d say, “At least 50 liters per plant.” When you go home, if you give 50 liters to your rose plant, it will die. You must see what kind of plant you have in your house and what it needs”. The same will apply to our children as each one is different.

Give Them ‘True’ Love

People misunderstand that loving their children is to cater to whatever they ask for. Giving them everything they ask for is going too far, isn’t it? When you love, you can do just whatever is needed. When you truly love someone, you are willing to be unpopular and still do what is best for them. At time you have to decide when to say no to the child’s demands.

Don’t Rush Them into Growing Up

It is very important that a child remains a child; there is no hurry to make him into an adult because you can’t reverse it later. When he is a child and he behaves like a child, it’s wonderful. When he becomes an adult and behaves like a child, that’s bad. There is no hurry for a child to become an adult.

Make It a Time to Learn, Not To Teach

When a child comes, unknowingly you laugh, play, sing, crawl under the sofa, and do all those things that you had forgotten to do.

What do you know about life to teach your children? A few survival tricks are the only things you can teach. Please compare yourself with your child and see who is capable of more joy? Your child, isn’t it? If he knows more joy than you, who is better qualified to be a consultant about life, you or him?

When a child comes, it’s time to learn, not teach.

Provide a Supportive and Loving Atmosphere

If you set an example of fear and anxiety, how can you expect your children to live in joy? They will also learn the same thing. The best thing you can do is to create a joyous and loving atmosphere.

Maintain a Friendly Relationship

Stop imposing yourself on the child and create a strong friendship rather than being a boss. Don’t sit on a pedestal and tell the child what she should do. Place yourself below the child so that it’s easy for them to talk to you.

Avoid Seeking Respect

Love is what you seek with your children, isn’t it? But many parents say, “You must respect me.” Except that you came a few years early, are bigger in body, and you know a few survival tricks, in what way are you a better life than him?

Make Yourself Truly Attractive

If you are genuinely interested in giving your children a good upbringing, you should first transform yourself into a peaceful and loving human being.

A child is influenced by so many things – the TV, neighbors, teachers, school, and a million other things. He will go the way of whatever he finds most attractive. As a parent, you have to make yourself in a way that the most attractive thing he finds is to be with the parents. If you are a joyous, intelligent, and wonderful person, he won’t seek company anywhere else. For anything, he will come and ask you.

If you are genuinely interested in giving your children a good upbringing, you should first transform yourself into a peaceful and loving human being.
