(B.EL.ED second-year practical Syllabus )

(MM: 100 Internal)

A: Observing Children: MM:30

To acquire an understanding of children’s development in different socio-cultural, political, economic, familial and personal contexts, establish links between developmental constructs and principles, and psycho-social realities of growing children and to develop skills in observing interviewing children, recording and reflective analysis.

Students are required to observe a minimum of 4-5 children in each of the age-groups of 3-5 years and 6-8 years.

Children can be observed in naturalistic settings such as a playground or park in the neighborhood. Observations time would be for about one hour, adding up to a total of 10 hours for each age-group.

Students are required to keep detailed records of their observations. Students must learn to discuss the difference between raw data and the observations and interpretations thereof.

It is expected that discussion amongst peer groups and with faculty supervisors during the time allotted for this, would enable students to evolve frameworks of analyzing the observational data.

Supervisors will facilitate the process of analysis and interpretation and help establish links with theory.

B: Self-development Workshops MM: 30

To explore the self for greater awareness, personal growth, reflective thinking and to develop insight into various dimensions of the self-perception and assumptions about the attitude towards people, children in particular and social issues, in the institution a serious of workshops on following themes should be conducted over the year under the guidance and supervision of trained professionals :

  • Exploring the self • Understanding our own childhood • Understanding the gap in perception between child and adult • Competition and cooperation

Each student will attend 5 full-day workshops and will prepare the report of the workshops.

C: Sports and Physical Education: MM:20

Students will participate regularly in sports activities and will prepare reports of two sports activities on the basis of actual field situations.
