    The academic year is in full swing and we are around the time when the country comes together to celebrate its teachers! In that line of thought, we at The Teacher Foundation proudly present 'Contemporary Classroom Workshop Series' (CCWS), kick-starting in the same week as Teachers' Day! A package of highly engaging and interesting workshops, this series promises to empower teachers to re-innovate and subsequently transform the teaching – learning process in their classrooms.

    As the name suggests, this workshop series encapsulates a wide range of content from Story telling, computer skills in teaching, effective questioning techniques to art appreciation, all geared to make teachers the best they can be in their respective classroom set ups!

    Why these workshops work:

    • Each workshop in the CCWS series stands to offer new ideas and possibilities for teaching empowering participants to create magic in every single class they conduct!
    • The structure of the workshops lend themselves to having plenty of group work and focussed group discussions on very specific areas of teaching. This way there is a tremendous practical relevance of learnings from these workshop in modern day classrooms.
    • The workshops are conveniently scheduled after school hours (between 2:30pm and 5:30 pm)
    • Schools can train as many teachers in its staff on a variety of topics in a span of just 2 months!
    • The workshops are held at a centrally located school to make it accessible for teachers travelling across the city!.

    Synopsis : Stories have a timeless fascination for children.

    Synopsis : Can a teacher teach only by asking questions or by only teaching content, hoping that this will stimulate thought and will lead to more questions and answers? What is the best way to teach? To provide “content”? To start with questions or with answers? Egyptians felt that children learn a lot through the answers that one gets. In this workshop one will learn about types of questions that children ask and how best to
    answer them.
