30.06.15: WE KNOW WHAT QVS TEACHERS DID THIS SUMMER!

At Queen's Valley School, it is our constant endeavour to improve the routine processes of 'teaching-learning' and generating synergy across the school because we believe ‘Good teachers become great teachers by going beyond the call of duty and beyond the textbook’. “Value added” is the enhancement that teachers achieve (to their knowledge, skills, abilities and other attributes) as a result of enlightening and recreational activities. This summer our teachers indulged into incredible activities for their professional development.

#SuccessMapping
Mapping is the first step to personality development.
A workshop on ‘Mapping for Success‘ was held on 24th June, 2015 for teachers in Queen’s Valley School, Dwarka. The basic objective of the workshop was to strengthen the teachers in planning and visualizing lesson, preparing concept /mind map, designing worksheet and knowing learning gaps. Mrs. Ira Sehgal made the teachers find different ways on ‘How to reduce clutter in the mind’ to develop a positive attitude towards life. Mrs Ira Sehgal also focused on some simple but powerful techniques to make mapping efforts count with her key words as ‘Being’, ‘Doing’ and Having’.

Mrs. Ira Sehgal emphasized on Positive Thinking as a key to success as with positive thinking, it is easier to gain success, inner peace, improved relationships, better health, happiness and satisfaction. This key also helps in the daily affairs of life, making everything flow more smoothly, and with less friction. A positive attitude makes life look brighter and promising. Every time a negative thought finds its way into your mind, immediately replace it with a positive thought.

The promising workshop received a good applause from the teachers.

#SunoKahani
Story Telling is the conveyance of events in words, images and sound often by improvisation or embellishment with decorative details and ideas. It also encourages the pupils to develop their speaking skills and build their confidence.

With a fun-filled session, she taught the teachers how to narrate a story in a class using voice modulation, facial expressions and gestures which can actually make the class interesting, where the children can enjoy and also learn the story in a fascinating way.

Through a number of activities she conveyed the fact that positivity is an individual’s possession. So, we should try to appreciate ourselves, our family and our profession and should be passionate about the work.

In the end, she concluded the session with a unique and rejuvenating activity which motivated the audience to shake their leg on popular Bollywood numbers. it conveyed that expressions play and important part in narrating a storyand how we , as teachers, can help our students in better understanding and learning.

#It’sRainingBooks
Books are a man’s best friend and accompany him in every walk of life. They enlighten him and drive away darkness of ignorance. It also goes without saying that a well read man is the highest and the healthiest contributor to the growth of an organization.

QVS organized a Book Talk under the name- Books & Beyond for its faculty members spanning from 19th to 29th of June2015. The teachers were encouraged to read books of their choice during the vacation, with the point of view of reviewing it, among their fellow teachers, post vacation. Teachers turned up with splendid examples of zealous reviews which were followed by a healthy discussion. The genres ranged from biographies to fiction, paranormal to spiritual and mystery to romance.

The school plans to embed it as a regular exercise among teachers and students to develop appreciation for reading and reviewing.

#YogaSeyHoga
"Yoga is a way for nourishing and blossoming the divinity within you."
The art of practicing yoga helps in controlling and uniting mind, body and spirit. It is a science that has been practiced for thousands of years.

In the spirit of celebrating International Yoga Day, Queen's Valley School organised daily yoga sessions for its teachers. Every day, 45 minutes were devoted to these sessions wherein the teachers were told about the benefits of practicing yoga and also how it can help them in their professional growth as well. The sessions were really refreshing and relaxing.

#TeachTheTeacher
The art of teaching does not merely involve a simple transfer of knowledge from one to other. Instead, it is a complex process that facilitates and influences the process of learning. Quality of a teacher is estimated on how much the students understand from their teaching. Thus, it’s imperative for a teacher to focus on sharpening and developing her teaching skills and eliminating errors.

To perk up the teaching skills of the faculty, Queen’s Valley School conducted a series of teaching demonstrations from 18th June to 30th June’15, wherein the teachers got a chance to witness different teaching methodologies. These creative and innovative sessions gave them a chance to experience classroom teaching from the other side of the table. Also, these demonstrations provided the teachers with an excellent opportunity to effectively plan their lessons based on the observers’ constructive feedback.

It was a successful endeavour that resulted in developing a healthy attitude towards well- intended criticism and building up of skills and confidence on the part of the teachers.

The Central Board of Secondary Education professes the importance of listening and speaking as indispensable skills in the development of language proficiency in students. Inculcating these skills in students has always been considered a stepping stone for creating individuals who not only decode information but also interpret critically, analyse effectively and evaluate objectively.

Queen's Valley School has always taken into account the interest, learnability and feasibility of learners while developing language skills in them. As part of an attempt to ensure teachers’ training in tune with the changing needs of the times and to suit the new generation technology savvy learners, a workshop on Evaluation of Listening and Speaking Skills was organised on Friday, 19th June 2015. The resource person, Ms. Alka Rai is an expert in innovative and programmatic approach to child education.

Addressing language teachers from all sister concern schools, Ms. Rai focused on the importance of conceptualising and designing international level proficiency tests and teacher support materials for the enhancement of speaking and listening skills. The teachers were familiarised with test objectives, test formats for speaking and listening, assessment criteria, sample listening tests and communicative activities which can be practised in class. At the same time, the focus of the workshop was the formative role of a teacher in raising standards of communication skills through focused classroom activities using appropriate methodology.

The event helped the teachers to act as triggers in enabling learners to comprehend, reorganise and synthesise information as part of the larger objective of learning and imbibing language.
