The Odisha School Education Programme Authority (OSEPA) has drafted a complete plan for activities that will be carried out in schools during the summer holiday in the academic year 2022-23 for children in classes 1 to 8.
OSEPA state director Anupam Shah has written to all District Education Officers-cum-DPCs, requesting that extra efforts be taken to complete the whole curriculum via a well-planned academic calendar.
The move attempts to provide a methodical learning process when schools reconvene following the summer vacation. The academic calendar is also important since the next academic session will begin after the summer break.
Following are some things that should be done in schools following the summer vacation:
On the school’s reopening day after vacation, the headmaster may organize a conference with all teachers to discuss the methodical development of a lesson scheme, time frame, lesson plan/lesson note.
The FLN (Class I to III) and LCP (Class IV to VIII) books, as well as the appropriate grade’s text books, will be distributed.
Each class must have a timetable (by class or by subject).
In addition to analyzing the outcomes of end-of-course assessments, subject instructors should pay attention to pupils who get poor grades. Students with good marks, on the other hand, should be given the chance to expand their knowledge via supplemental resources, innovative working quizzes, and debates, among other things.
Learning in a peer group should be encouraged and promoted. If there are any unique ideas, the teacher may use them to close the gap in the children’s learning loss.
Teachers must get pedagogical/online assistance from the CRCC of the relevant cluster, and all schools in the cluster must monitor class-by-subject-by-results.
The children’s safety and security must be assured.
Every school should provide a child-friendly atmosphere.
The HM of the school shall conduct class supervision, which should be noted in the supervision register and notified to the involved teacher.
Corrections to written work The headmaster of the school should verify the register and inform the concerned instructor.
All instructors’ lesson notes should be checked by the headmaster, and the comments should be recorded.
