Activity Based Learning

English Class I and II

SSA Tamilnadu - 2009


What NCF 2005 says…1

• English does not stand alone. It


needs to find its place along with
other Indian languages –

an across –the – curriculum approach

SSA Tamilnadu - 2009


What NCF 2005 says…2

• English can occur in tandem with


the first language for learning
activities

Reading is a transferable skill

SSA Tamilnadu - 2009


What NCF 2005 says…3

• Language is best acquired through


different meaning-making contexts

All language is in a sense, language teaching

SSA Tamilnadu - 2009


What NCF 2005 says…4

• a comprehensible input-rich curriculum


that lays the foundation for spontaneous
language growth

The classroom needs to be an inclusive space,


sensitive to individual learning styles.

SSA Tamilnadu - 2009


What NCF 2005 says…5
• Language evaluation need not be tied
to “achievement” with respect to
particular syllabi

must be reoriented to the


measurement of language proficiency.

SSA Tamilnadu - 2009


What was done…
• Analysis of Teacher Feedback over 30 Districts
• Fixing of a time frame/ladder for English
• Streamlining Evaluation for a Skill-based
curriculum
• Textbook analysis to
– Correlate and fix competencies in the cards
– Link the themes to the milestones in the
ladder
– Evolve the word list for the respective years
SSA Tamilnadu - 2009

of the vernacular – like bus, station,
market, cycle, shop, repair, phone,
school, chair, table, balloon, watch,
beach, etc., and
b. English words that are a part of the
child‟s day-to-day environment and
experience, like mother, father, sister,
brother, door, cow, cat, banana, house,
mango, etc.,
