SOLE with STORY CONCEPT
We started working on SOLE in Science & Social Studies with 4th & 5th grade students. Children themselves researched on topics from their syllabus, they created colourful worksheet with having fun, they know their topics very well now with ‘SOLE’, they are more interested in doing their studies and also find SOLE very interesting.
Some feedbacks from the students stating, that they feel that they are playing when they were actually learning.
So we decided to trail SOLE with a story concept.
Facilitator Started narrating a short story on ‘Chandra Gupta Maurya’ and asked children to prepare their own learning material (please find attached images of the learning material made by children ).
Moreover few group were not still satisfied with their work and so they went home did a bit of research and took print outs of the topics.
Rest of the groups could not do the same as they were from a remote area(villages) and financially not too sound. But when they came back to school it was noticed that they were sharing their views on the same.
Teachers & Parents are now tensed as the children are more smarter and can ask any questions for which the teachers and parents may not have an answer for. While Students know it all.
The principle of Dr. Sugata Mitra works incredibly well.
