Capacity Building CBSE Master Trainer’s Programme in Social Sciences


Our Senior Secondary teachers Ms. Jasbir Kaur Gill and Ms. Sujata Mukherjee attended the 2-day workshop held on June 29 and 30, 2017 at Sri Ma Vidyalaya, Thane (W). Social Science teachers of 9th and 10th grades from Thane, Kalyan, Nagpur, Pune, Nanded, Airoli and Navi Mumbai participated in the workshop.

Resource Person Seema Nair conducted the session which dealt with methods and strategies of teaching Social Science, inter-disciplinary approach in teaching Social Science, understanding Bloom’s Taxonomy, lesson planning and preparation of lesson plans in groups, various teaching strategies to facilitate different types of students and techniques to be used for giving interactive lectures.

In the light of NCF 2005 and NCERT position papers proposing an epistemological shift in Social Sciences, learners are expected to understand and apply concepts rather than simply memorize the information in each topic.
