The Inclusive Teacher Project

Greetings from The Teacher Foundation !

The Government schools in Karnataka will commence the new academic year during the last week of May. The Teacher Foundation got in touch with the Department Officials for the implementation of the proposed programme. We have received the permission from both - State Government and District Level Officials for implementing the programme in Yadgiri District of Karnatka State.  We are expecting a formal permission letter from Govt. Department by end of May 2017. We have discussed the programme calendar with the officials and plan to commence the programme from June 2017. 100 teachers from 50 selected schools (2 teachers from each school) of Shahapur block of Yadgiri district-Karnataka State will participate in the programme.


The Teacher Foundation will commence the programme by organising an Orientation for the teachers. Post this, we will conduct the baseline observation of teachers by administering the “Classroom Observation Checklist” - a tool developed by The Teacher Foundation to understand the current practices of the selected school teachers. This will be followed by 5 days of trainings in two phases of 3 days and 2 days; interspersed with 2 rounds of School Based Support(Observation of individual teachers classroom followed with a Feedback session).

We will keep you posted of any further developments.

 

Thank you for your support!

The Inclusive Teacher Project

Greetings from The Teacher Foundation !

Disadvantaged children in rural India can benefit most from more enlightened, inclusive teaching. This project aims at empowering 125 school teachers in the poorest areas with an intensive, inspiring Inclusive education program. It consists of a 5-day workshop and powerful school-based support sessions using proven methods to enable teachers to bring in the last child into engaged learning.

Challenge:

As per the official records, out of the 135,301 children identified as children with special needs in Karnataka, 121,153 are enrolled in schools and 14,148 are given homeschooling. This makes Karnataka one of the 8 States in India that is 100% in compliance with the Policy of Universal Primary Education. However, ground data suggest that 70% of our regular school teachers have "neither received training in special education nor have any experience teaching students with disabilities."

Solution

The Inclusive Teacher Project consists of a 5-day workshop and powerful school-based support sessions using proven methods to enable teachers to bring in the last child into engaged learning. Workshop on various aspects of Inclusive Education will help teachers learn various ways in which they can include children with disabilities and teach. During school based support trainers from The Teacher Foundation will observe teachers in classrooms, to provide them with the required support.

Long-Term Impact

The Inclusive Teacher Project will enable these 125 teachers from Government schools to ensure that all children despite their differences, receive the opportunity of being an equal part of the same classroom and in the process get the learning opportunity of being exposed to the curriculum to their optimal potential. Since a teacher impacts over 400 children over her/ his career, this programme has a potential impact of 50,000 disadvantaged children.

Project Progress:

The Teacher Foundation is in touch with the State Education Department Officials for the implementation of the programme. We have had discussion with Haveri and Yadgiri district officials about the programme.  Both the district officials are keen to take this forward in their respective regions.  The programme is tentatively scheduled to commence in the month of June 2017.

We will keep you posted about the programme permission from the State & District levels.  

Thank you for your support!
