    September and October have been abuzz with activity at TTF Bangalore. The Teacher Foundation's Contemporary Classroom Series [CCWS], successfully brought together teachers and facilitators of varied experiences on diverse topics.

    The workshops managed to provide a rich variety of classroom experiences that everyone took back with them. Topics covered in the series dealt with technology, teaching through storytelling, creating characters using theater and art to brainstorming - questions and answers to bringing value education into classrooms. From the 'new' teachers,who were keen on learning and experiencing the ropes in classroom management and communication skills, to the those who wished to integrate art into their subjects – It was an utter delight for the senses and spirit alike!

    As we had anticipated each workshop offered a rich experience to both the participating teachers as well as facilitators. Needless to say for us at TTF, it was yet another delightful and fulfilling feat.

    “The CCWS on 'creating a character' was a fun filled,crisp,brisk and energizing session .The workshop focused on a non traditional and informal approach to creating characters in a story,most of which was done in group activities . My take home from the session was using non prescribed and innovative methods of creating characters from thin air,some good energizers and group reflection techniques."

    “The workshop helped the teachers to brush up their skills in the art of story telling, overcome their inhibitions and know their strengths as a narrator. It also focused on how to trigger the imagination of children with a little voice modulation or a simple story board. It also aimed at giving the children a break from the electronic media and involving them in an activity where they could also contribute in the story board, developing their motor skills. The workshop took us back to the colourful world of childhood, of fairies and castles , it made us think how a child's world revolves round simple things and how we can help to recreate it for them.”
    Anupama Mishra

    “The workshop was a learning in -To express without inhibitions and license to make a fool of ourselves.”
