Happy New Year Greetings for 2010

Happy New Year Greetings for 2010! As we step into this year we also step into a world of changing paradigms in terms of school reforms ushered in the last quarter of 2009.. In a similar advisory sent at the outset in 2009, the emphasis was on Life Skills, Higher Order Thinking Skills, Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE), Value Education and the interactive website of the CBSE Board. The CBSE Board has strengthened its resolve to implement all the above in sustained way. The agenda of the CBSE Board in the coming year is clear.

Promoting Reading Habits as part of CCE in English Language

Inculcating good reading habits in children has always been a concern for all stakeholders in education. Now with the introduction of CCE and grading in secondary education there has been a paradigm shift from getting marks at an end of the term summative examination to the process of learning and acquiring better language skills.

With everything – information, entertainment, videos and even books within reach through the internet, it is indeed a challenge to convince students to pick up books and engage with the author, story, character and ideas presented in the reading passage or book. It is not enough to offer children what is considered a good selection of reading text as merely presenting a good selection of reading texts will not ensure that the child will read a passage and become a good reader. A conscious attempt needs to be made to help children to relate to the text in a meaningful way. Reading any text should be done with the purpose of:

Strengthening Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) in Class IX

The Central CBSE Board of Secondary Education introduced Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation in Primary classes in 2004 (Circular No. 5/18/25/04). The achievement records and its format was also circulated for Classes I to V with the objective of facilitating holistic learning in the school. The focus was on identifying the talents of the learner and empowering with positive inputs. The CBSE Board recommended a five Point rating scale, it also recommended the elimination of the pass /fail system at the primary classes (Circular No. 31/04/21/05). The CBSE Board has also followed it up by extending this scheme upto Classes VI to VIII and developed a CCE card on School Based Assessment for the same (Circular No. 2/06).

New Year Greetings-2009

This is the time when all schools/teachers and students are in a state of anticipated flurry of preparation for the home examination and board examinations around the corner. There is a need to reinforce the concept of life-skills with a special focus on adolescents. There should be need for anxiety, stress or under panic, Counsellors, teachers and parents can work together to harmonise the holistic personality of a learner by focusing on the development of life-skills such as critical and creative thinking, problem-solving and decision-making, coping with emotions and dealing with stress. This would enable students to maintain calm, poise and equip them with the necessary skills/tools to cope with any negative emotions.
