#RedefiningCivicEducation

 

A Janaagraha & YLAC Initiative

Janaagraha and YLAC have joined forces to redefine the way civic education is imparted in schools in our country. Together, we are developing experiential learning lesson plans to make classrooms fun and engaging. Lesson plans are being developed for select chapters in the sciences and civics curriculum for grades 6th to 10th, depending upon their relevance to civic engagement and responsibility.

Each lesson plan (or Teacher’s Guide as we call it) employs multiple teaching techniques – including role plays, videos, games, activities, debates and discussions – and contains detailed facilitation notes to support teachers. The plans cover the base NCERT curriculum and include assessments to judge progress, while prescribing additional resources for teachers and students to further their learning.

We’ll upload the lesson plans to this page as they get finalized. The ones that have already been completed are available for you to access below. Here’s to bringing back the wonder in the classroom and paving the way for engaged citizens!
