What can Schools Do?

Formative Assessment needs to be taken up with discrimination and in consultation with all subjects teachers so that projects of all subjects are not given at the same time

Self learning and study skills need to be encouraged through in-class activities. Project work may be given in groups and the group members need to work in school under the direct supervision of the teacher

Through an interactive classroom, the teacher must engage students in exploring, experimenting and experiencing learning

School may lay emphasis on Co-Scholastic Areas i.e., Life Skills, Attitudes and Values for personality development. Giving feedback of the students to the parent from time to time is important.

Uncovering and discovering syllabus is more important than merely completing syllabus in all subjects.

Integrated Projects may be given where subjects are interlinked. Subject teachers should plan and develop the project and assess it together.
