B.Classes III to V:
English – 10 DRGs per district X 10 Districts = 100

In turn, these DRGs representing from each District will conduct 3-day training for the teachers at the mandal level in different spells and in three phases. The plan of action for conduct of Trainings at mandal level is as follows
The training will be in the mode of participatory approach and with due emphasis on experiential learning by providing enough hands of experiences to the individuals on classroom teaching, multi-grade teaching, preparation of supporting material, planning and assessment procedure. In case of class-I and Class-II, the focus is also given on Early literacy skills.
For conduct of training at mandal level, a trainer’s package for Resource participants and handouts for the trainees are prepared. The trainer package will be given to DRPs in the State level training. The same handouts for the trainees have to be given in the training programme to be conducted at the mandal level.

A group of 20 mandals to be clustered as a unit.
Three days training should be conducted for teachers of classes I and II and classes III to V
The training to be given in the specified subjects on rotational basis in four spells.

In about 36 working days, the entire training of primary teachers should be completed in the districts having about. 60 mandals in three phases.
The detail schedule is worked out and incorporated in the guidelines prepared as a reference to the DPOs.
