If you were ever in trouble, did you expect to get help in a certain fashion, from a certain type of individual or shape and form? You probably did. And that is fine. But would you say no to someone who is comes in to help out from whom you least expect? Probably not. Similarly would you be willing to help someone when they are in trouble? You might be no different from this little doggy trying to help move this big stranded truck! Go right ahead...when the calling comes from within. Never hesitate to do a good thing.

The problem is if this is happening to a large number of young kids daily or most times. Half eaten breakfast, incomplete sleep, rushed into school to get into the rat race? Is this how we bring young kids to class room? What are we doing? One thing right about this picture - only God can save her and her generation Share with your friends.

Under the new plan, a student would have to take up three Indian languages listed in schedule VIII of the Constitution, one of which could be English. All three languages would be main subjects in the Class X board exams. Students can study a foreign language, or a non-listed Indian language, as an additional subject, which will be non-qualifying in nature.

Math has always been a hard subject for most of the kids, when Tarini Wilson, a maths teacher for 30 years, read about the Shanghai technique, in which a teacher breaks down the teaching of concepts and moves on only when every child in the class has understood, she was all ears.



"The fault is in the way we focus on exams when we teach and not on making the student fall in love with the subject," said Wilson, who teaches Class 7 students. "I'm trying to follow the Shanghai method, a buddy technique where students have two hours of lessons and then sit in pairs and work on sums together. It's fun and a great way of learning," she said.

EkStep Foundation signs an MoU with Educational Initiatives to collaborate on improving comprehension and absorption abilities of students by providing them with learning tools. The aim is to ensure education is based not on rote learning but a deep understanding of concepts.

We will be able to identify when a child is unable to understand an idea, understand where the problem lies, and subsequently provide him or her with better guidance" said, Srini Raghavan, CEO, Educational Initiatives.
