CURRICULUM & PEDAGOGY
Curriculum & Pedagogy has been restructured in a new 5+3+3+4 design.
Holistic development of Learners
The key overall thrust of curriculum and pedagogy is to move the education system towards real understanding and towards learning how to learn – and away from the culture of rote learning as is largely present today. The aim of education is not only the cognitive development, but also building character and creating holistic and well rounded individuals equipped with the key 21st century skills.
Essential Learning and Critical Thinking
Curriculum content is enhanced in each subject to its core essentials, to make space for critical thinking and more holistic, inquiry-based, discovery-based, discussion based, and analysis based learning. The mandated content focuses on key concepts, ideas, applications, and problem solving. Teaching and learning is conducted in a more interactive manner; questions are encouraged, and classroom sessions regularly contain more fun, creative, collaborative, and exploratory activities for students for deeper and more experiential learning.
In all stages, experiential learning has been adopted, including Hands-on Learning, Arts integrated and Sports-integrated Education, Story-telling-based pedagogy, among others, as standard pedagogy within each subject, and with explorations of relation among different subjects. To close the gap in achievement of learning outcomes, classroom transactions have been shifted, towards competency-based learning and education. The assessment tools (including assessment “as”, “of”, and “for” learning)
will also be aligned with the learning outcomes, capabilities, and dispositions as specified for each subject of a given class.
The School prepares students for the All India Secondary School Examination and All India Senior School Certificate Examination, conducted by the CBSE, New Delhi. Every effort is made to teach the students the effective use of English as a written and spoken language while Hindi is the second and Sanskrit the third language in accordance with the Three Language Scheme of the Secondary Education.
