Guidelines for Preparing the 10th Class students for SSC Exams
- Completion of the syllabus by end of January 2020 as per the academic calendar.
- Those students whose performance is good, for them revision could be taken up.
- For those children who are not up to the mark, try to find out where they are weak. For them, the revision of syllabus should be supplemented with remedial teaching.
- The Teaching learning process should focus on conceptual understanding of the child rather than memorization of principles, formulae, and algorithms without understanding. Understanding of the concept should precede the memorization of said aspects or practice work or drill work.
- Through your observation or through the tests that you are conducting or already conducted
(Slip tests, formative assessment, and summative assessment) diagnose the learner strengths and weaknesses concept-wise or area wise and provide remedial teaching in the areas in which the students are weak.
- The teacher should make question wise /concept wise/ lesson wise analysis of the performance of the students in the pre-final examination or the assessment/examination last conducted. For this purpose, the following proforma can be put to use.
Note: Put a tick ( v) mark if the student response is satisfactory if it is not at satisfactory put ‘X’, which indicates the need for help from the teacher.
- To pinpoint the student weakness, to assess his pre-requisite abilities or to assess his present status of related knowledge or skills, the teacher has to conduct the diagnostic test. Sometimes the diagnostic test may be intended to test the basic skills if the individual child is poor.
- The diagnostic test may be framed for a group of children or for individual learner depending upon the learner weaknesses. This test should not be for all children.
- Through the diagnostic test ascertain the weakness of the learner concept-wise, skill-wise.
- The diagnostic test or any other test should be followed with remedial instruction.
- The remedial instruction should be learner specific; it is not general classroom instruction. If a certain group of children are found to be weak in the same concept or subject area, the teacher may conduct remedial instruction in groups. Homogenous grouping is desirable at this stage i.e same ability grouping for preparation of examination. Depending upon the abilities of the children (Knowledge and skill level), workable groups should be made.
- In the remedial instruction, the teacher has to monitor the learner progress day-wise at least week wise and step up the teaching for the next concept or subject area.
- The remedial instruction should be carried through tutoring, counselling. Individualized instruction or group instruction but certainly not whole-class instruction. Handholding is necessary for students who deserve academic support.
- Keep constantly monitor the learning progress of the students.
- When you are correcting the answer scripts or notebooks, please do not limit to putting right or wrong symbol, please have a discussion with the student where and how he has gone wrong. Please try to correct the answer scripts with suggestive answers, correct the mistakes of the children and give comments suggesting the follow-up action. The teacher has to review their work periodically and if necessary daily.
- If sizable students do not understand the concept, please do teach and re-teach with changes in n teaching strategies with appropriate illustrations and contexts.
- If feasible use ICT as a teaching tool and as a learning tool.
- Take the support of the high achievers in helping the students who are lagging behind, but be cautious that learning of the students who are helping should not suffer in this process.
- Prepare a clear teaching-learning plan for every learner and especially for the children who are lagging. This can be done on an individual basis or group basis.
- Analyze the syllabus and the model question paper, and identify the important concepts learnt by the students.
- Don’t encourage the students for drilling, mugging without understanding.
- Every teacher should have two teaching plans one is for general teaching, usually done for the whole class and second for remedial teaching. This should be done based on the needs of the children.
- Chalk out, day-wise, subject wise schedule for the study hours for the students before and after
- The Headmaster should ensure that the teachers should prepare teaching plans (General teaching plan and remedial plan)
- He should conduct regular review meetings without disturbing the school instructional hours with the subject teachers and review the instructional plans and children progress.
- If it is felt necessary, the services of retired teachers or the persons who are working in junior colleges may be utilized.
- Provide good ambience in the school and in the classroom.
- Make school libraries particularly subject related books and teacher handbooks available for ready reference.
- Hold subject teacher meetings in the school and discuss the strategies to improve the children’s learning.
- Take the support of other teachers also who are not dealing with class X, and tag the low performing students to these teachers for academic guidance and coaching.
- Adopt relaxation techniques such as breathing exercise, meditation, light exercises etc. for relaxation of muscles and as well as mind.
- Proper seating arrangements with backrest may be made available for study hours.
