  • Let’s begin with an icebreaker.
    Call out the letters L E A R N by turns and form five groups. All Ls together, all Es in one place and likewise.
    Each group - sit in a circle or in a compact group.
    Assign yourselves specific responsibilities as in the next slide.
    Discuss with the members of your group the topic that is going to be given and make notes.
    The group spokesperson will represent your group and make one-minute presentations on your group’s views.
  • Use of appropriately designed teaching aids makes the teaching-learning process highly effective.
    Each teacher may make a wise choice of the aids depending on factors such as availability of infrastructure, cost effectiveness, reusability, student achievement levels etc.
    The web is a very rich resource for ready-to-use teaching aids. However, be warned that it is a dense jungle where you may easily get lost, if you do not predetermine your exact needs.
