School Induction Programme

The sole purpose of Initiatory school experience is to provide the student-teacher an opportunity to have primary experiences with the functioning of the school. This school attachment program is for a period of five continuous working days giving them an opportunity to acquaint with the school environment and their day-to- day functioning. Observation of lessons of senior teachers individually or in small groups (2 nos.), meeting the students informally to learn their background and interest in learning, to see the learning facilities in the school, observing the social climate in the school, etc are some of the activities to be undertaken during this period. Each student-teacher has to engage 3 lessons individually or as Shared Practice. In Shared Practice, student-teachers will be in small groups of three members. The lessons will be divided into three parts and each student teacher will practice one of the parts by rotation in the natural classroom situation. Lesson plans need not be written with the rigidity employed for Practice Teaching lesson. The student-teachers have to maintain a detailed diary as record of the visit. 

After the initiatory school experiences, a reflection session should be organized in the college. Assessment of student-teacher performance during this period will be done jointly and conveniently by the General and Optional teachers. Institutions can depute either the Optional teacher or the General teacher for organizing and assessment of school initiatory experiences.
