Today we have to continue our lesson of note making. In our previous class we read • How note making is done? • Why note making is done? • When note making is done? • What are the easiest methods to do note making? • How is note making useful? We also did few examples to make our understanding clear and better. In today’s class we are going to continue in the same manner. But before we discuss further, let us know about the learning objectives of this session. LEARNING OBJECTIVES This lesson will help students to • Recognise new but some common abbreviations • List abbreviations to be used in all spheres of life.
  2. 2. PES/ENG/IX/108 -2- • State new examples to give better understanding. Well students as you know we have to use many short forms and abbreviations in our note making. Few examples I have given you in the previous class. Some more we are going to see now. NOTE MAKING SYMBOLS & ABBREVIATIONS "Learn 2 wrt fast b4 u go bananas!"

  6. 6. PES/ENG/IX/108 -6- THE INDIAN TOLL According to union transport ministry, although buses constitute only 1.2 % of India’s vehicles, in 2002 they were responsible for more than 11% of road accidents and 13% deaths. Around 85000 people died every year from road accidents ion India and the social cost of all this is staggering Rs 55,000 crores. In India, as in Asia, the driver is main culprit – 78% of accidents are attributed to the driver’s fault. Although there are programmes for teaching road safety, only a very few drivers attend it. Indeed Dr. Sanjay K Singh of IIT, Kanpur and transport subject expert argue that bus safety in India will not improve unless drivers are better off economically, and not over worked. In addition, he says, road in infrastructure must improve with special lanes of cyclists and handcarts, and proper footpath for pedestrians. ANCHOR Now let us make notes. ROAD ACCIDENTS A.SCENARIO ON ROADS a) No. of road accidents each yr. . >11% b) % accidents by bus drivers 78% c) % deaths daused by these accidents arund 85,000 d) Money spent on prob related to accidents Rs. 55,000 crores B.Solution: a) training drivers thru road safety programs C. reasons fr ths neglection; a) underpaid b) overworked D.How can ths be improved? a)thru better roads b) spcl lanes fr cyclists & handcarts c) prpr footpaths fr pedestrians.
  7. 7. PES/ENG/IX/108 -7- ANCHOR Well students let us now go through a little long passage. But we will go step by step. First let us read the passage only and then highlight the major points in bold. (For MM) Show the paragraph and then highlight the text in bold VO WITH TEXT ON SCREEN HOW CHILDREN FAIL For a great many this failure is avowed and absolute. Close to forty per cent of those who begin high school drops out before they finish. For college the figure is one in three. Many others fail in fact if not in name. They complete their schooling only because we have agreed to push them up through the grades and out of the schools, whether they know anything or not. But there is a more important sense in which almost all children fail: except for a handful, who may or may not be good students, they fail to develop more than a tiny part of the tremendous capacity for learning, understanding, and creating with which they were born and of which they made full use during the first two or three years of their lives. Why do they fail? They fail because they are afraid, bored, and confused. They are afraid, above all else, of failing, of disappointing or displeasing the many anxious adults around them, whose limitless hopes and expectations for them hang over their heads like a cloud. They are bored because the things they are given and told to do in school are so trivial, so dull, and make such limited and narrow demands on the wide spectrum of their intelligence, capabilities, and talents. They are confused because most of the torrent of words that pours over them in school makes little or no sense. It often flatly contradicts other things they have been told, and hardly ever has any relation to what they really know - to the rough model of reality that they carry around in their minds.
  8. 8. PES/ENG/IX/108 -8- How does this mass failure take place? What really goes on in the classroom? What are these children who fail doing? What goes on in their heads? Why don't they make use of more of their capacity? : Strategy; Fear and Failure; Real Learning; and How Schools Fail. Strategy deals with the ways in which children try to meet, or dodge, the demands that adults make on them in school. Fear and Failure deals with the interaction in children of fear and failure, and the effect of this on strategy and learning. Real Learning deals with the difference between what children appear to know or are expected to know, and what they really know. How Schools Fail analyses the ways in which schools foster bad strategies, raise children's fears, produce learning which is usually fragmentary, distorted, and short- lived, and generally fail to meet the real needs of children. These four topics are clearly not exclusive. They tend to overlap and blend into each other. They are, at most, different ways of looking at and thinking about the thinking and behaviour of children. The schools in which the experiences described here took place are private schools of the highest standards and reputation.. Friends and colleagues, who understand what I am trying to say about the harmful effect of today's schooling on the character and intellect of children, and who have visited many more schools than I have, tell me that the schools I have not seen are not a bit better than those I have, and very often are worse. ANCHOR Well students the passage is lengthy but not very difficult. It is time consuming but you need to concentrate on the flow and the theme of the passage. So do not get anxious on reading it. Let’s now extract the notes out of the passage in a different way. ANCHOR Well students let me show you one more way to do the note making. A) HOW CHILDREN FAIL • Most children in school fail. • High School - forty per cent
  9. 9. PES/ENG/IX/108 -9- • College - thirty three per cent. • Others in fact if not name - complete because pushed, know anything??? • But, more importantly, fail to develop full capacity for learning. B) Why ? Fail because: afraid, bored, and confused. o afraid of failing, disappointing adults o bored because they given trivial, dull, things to do o confused because most of school makes little or no sense, flatly contradicts other things , no relation to what they really know C) How?: o Strategy - ways in which children try to meet, or dodge, the demands made on them o Fear and Failure - interaction in children of fear and failure, + effect on strategy and learning. o Real Learning - compares what children appear to know with what really know. o How Schools Fail - ways: schools foster bad strategies; raise children's fears; produce fragmentary, distorted & short-lived learning; fail to meet real needs. ANCHOR See students how simple theses passages are? These will help you definitely in grasping and understanding note making. Well children there are some useful tips to be followed too let us see them. Useful tips • look at the teacher or TV • ask questions, or ask for clarification • familiarise yourself with the topic beforehand, if possible by background reading
  10. 10. PES/ENG/IX/108 - 10 - • listen for phrases which indicate that important points are about to be made and note these key points • do not try to write everything down • check your notes as soon as possible. Do they make sense? Are they complete? • use abbreviations • leave gaps for points missed and complete later ANCHOR Apart from these there are some more important note making tips to be kept in mind. Let us see them. VO WITH TEXT ON SCREEN Note making tips • Take notes in your own words. • Make sure you can read your notes later. Don't cram too much on the page. • Use different note making methods for different purposes, for example flowcharts for process planning, tables for comparison. • Organise your notes so that you can easily find what you are looking for. • Title your notes and date them. If you have several pages on one topic, include page numbers. • Always record the source of your notes. You will need these for your references. • Avoid cutting and pasting, or copying huge chunks from books or articles - you risk committing plagiarism by accident. Anchor So, children, we come to the end of the episode on Note making. Let us have a recap of what we just learnt. SUMMARY. • Recapitulation of the previous class.
  11. 11. PES/ENG/IX/108 - 11 - • Why and how note making is done/? • Useful tips related to note making being given • Immense practice with explanation is given to the students. With these exercises we come to the end of today’s lesson. I am sure you will make good use of what you just learnt. Thank you everybody. Have a good day!
