Innovative teaching strategies that meet the needs of all students
This project work was prepared to explore innovative teaching strategies for rural Indian primary schools with an intention to prepare a grade one to five handbook for teachers. The design was based on the British Columbia (BC) curriculum model developed in Canada on the basis of innovative teaching strategies. Most of the rural Indian primary school use the traditional teaching strategies; these out-dated strategies are ones that I experienced both as a student and teacher. These teaching strategies did not help the teachers engage students in the classroom. My experiences and a strong concern about today‘s students in rural India were the driving forces behind this research project. I hope this handbook will be helpful in providing a new path for the rural Indian primary school teachers. I believe this research project will result in (a) providing innovative teaching strategies to rural Indian school teachers and (b) more engaged students in rural Indian classrooms.
