Language teachers who teach English at Nirmal Bhartia School attended a workshop in the school which was conducted by Ms Uma on 18th May, 2017. This was a part of a series of workshops that had been planned for our teachers as a part of their professional and skill development.
The workshop focused on how to develop reading and writing skills in elementary grades and carry it forward in higher grades.
The reading workshop stressed on the importance of having a pre reading, during reading and after reading session with the children. The writing workshop discussed the different kinds of writing processes like Shared writing, Interactive writing, Guided writing and Independent writing and how to engage young children to write in detail and stretch their ideas through simple strategies.
Ms Uma shared many simple and practical tips which the teachers could follow in their classrooms during reading and writing sessions.
