A Jamshedpur Teacher cooks up a MasterChef Recipe for Success!

The educator, the parent and the policymaker are the three magical ingredients that can help the child cook the perfect recipe of Success. Leaving even one of them out can leave you with a bad taste.

Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn

100 gms of good teaching practicesA teacher should be a role model to the student. The qualities imparted to the students should be such that they are embedded in the child’s value system for life. Time keeps changing and for a teacher to be effective in his/her discourse, he/she also needs to keep updating with the latest trends and keep on developing new techniques to pique the students mind and connect to them. An ideal teacher must come prepared with the lesson plan and also be prepared with the TLM (Teaching, Learning Material in the form of charts, graphs and maps) as it keeps the audience hooked and succeeds in holding their interest, if not that then the vocal discourse must be made creative to make the class interesting. Gone are the days when a long lecture did the job, nowadays it is considered monotonous and with so many distractions at hand, the child soon loses interest.

Every child in a class is different and must be treated equally yet uniquely. We have fingers of different length in the same hand and when folded they come out to be of equal length. Likewise, each child is differently equal. A teacher must not look at his/her role as a job but as a responsibility or a duty towards the society, because it upon them that rests the haloed task of developing future leaders.

1 tablespoon of supportive parental care
In my experience of 3 decades, I have realized that it is as much the guardian’s responsibility for the character building of a child as is the teacher’s. Every new learning needs a follow-up and for that parents should imbibe a culture at home which helps their child be in tune with the student’s learning each day. The guardian’s should also take up the pro-activeness to interact with the teachers periodically to know the weak areas of their child and explore ways to rectify them in a constructive manner. A feeling of collective responsibility and togetherness should prevail between the guardians and teachers and that will make the work so much easier.

A pinch of responsible educational reforms
The first two ingredients won’t be able to concoct the magic without the support of the third. Although the government has striven to improve the state of education through its scheme of Sarva Siksha Abhiyan and most recently the RTE act however the results have been far from expected. However its one small step at a time and some of the mandates mentioned in the act are really constructive and would help better the state of education immensely if implemented properly.

Arrangement of playgrounds, separate lavatories for girls and boys and 1 teacher per 40 students per class are some noteworthy reforms.
Although the Mid Day Meal scheme has increased the average attendance in schools, it is the duty of the teacher to engage these kids with food for thought, not with the allure of getting lunch.
A perfect balance of all three can provide your child with all the required nutrients to master success, otherwise he will only be left with permanent distaste. And that my friend is a recipe for success.

This happens to every student in every school in India...

The fact is that it happens so subtly that no one realizes. We send children to school with the noble intention that they would acquire the education that will help them to become successful individuals. Imagine if the exact opposite was happening?

Children are more impressionable than you may imagine! And that is why they are very perceptive about peppy songs, idiosyncrasies or catchy one-liners mouthed by movie stars and everything else playing in that box in our living rooms we call TV. Same happens for them at school too. Apart from what they see and learn from the textbooks, it is also the surroundings at home and school and the behavior and attitude of the people around them that they pick up things from. All these later contribute in forming their values, beliefs and attitudes about and towards the various things in life. This silent education that seeps through subconsciously (largely) also stays the longest with the child. They outstay the chronological order of historical e…
