  1. 1. When We Changed…<br />... Ourselves. <br />
  2. 2. What Did We Change?<br />The way our little friends were being taught in school.<br />
  3. 3. Children in the lower grades were not being taught the way we feel they should be taught. <br />So we decided to teach them!<br />
  4. 4. If 70 percent of English texts are comprised of sight words, knowledge of sight words would actually enable children to read. We could start here…<br />Sounded good, but we had to check, if this is what our little friends really needed. <br />
  5. 5. Armed with Fry’s First 100 sight words lists we started the diagnostic. <br />We found that students knew only 60 words from the first 100. <br />So we taught 100 children for 2 weeks. <br />Each one of us taught 2 children. <br />
  6. 6. 30 minutes were spent every day teaching them. Once we were done with sight words, we read storybooks with our little ‘siblings’…<br />After 2 weeks, we checked if we did a good job: and guess what!<br />
  7. 7. What Changed Outside Us:<br />From 60 words to 83words<br />That’s how many they learnt!<br />
  8. 8. What Changed Within Us:<br />Teaching made us stronger, we were more confident now of ourselves: teaching really is leadership! <br />If we are lucky to be taught by good teachers, we need to share it with others. <br />There is a shortage of teachers, but we can always teach. <br />This does not stop here: we now will continue teaching our siblings at home and our friends within our class. <br />If you don’t like it, change it,yourself. <br />
  9. 9. The Team<br />AnjaliGupta- The one who identified the problem. <br />ItishaPathak and ArmanChaudhary- the ones who made it happen. <br />Students of Class Four B in Divine Child High School from where “each one taught one”. <br />
