An Initiative For Meaningful Engagement of The Students
The main motive behind the announcement of the alternative academic calendar is to engage the primary school students in a meaningful manner during their stay at the home due to the pandemic situation in the country. The eight-week study plan included in the alternative academic calendar covers different subjects that can be used by the teachers and the students in addition to the regular classes, resources, and activities. The alternative academic calendar maps essential themes from crucial chapters that must be taught to the students through various lessons and activities and then maps them with the actual learning outcomes for the students.
The alternative academic calendar aims to empower the teachers, students, and school administration and help them maximize the learning outcomes with the help of the available online learning tools and ensure positive reinforcement in the students.
