Teacher Training

After the development of ‘Self-Development and Art Appreciation’ curriculum for grades 9 and 10, the SAF team would collaborate with 34 secondary school teachers of Marathi-medium PMC schools in Pune through learning circles. The primary objective of these learning circles was to create a teachers’ community where they could share knowledge and have an open dialogue amongst each other. In these learning circles, the facilitators of SAF extended additional support to them by conducting workshops.

The teachers were trained on

  • • How the rubric at the end of each chapter of the textbooks work
  • • How to de-brief conversations, initiate learning circles with students
  • • Bringing the culture of positive discipline in the classroom
