Hyderabad: With a view to improve learning abilities in reading, writing and solving simple arithmetic problems among the students, the School Education department has decided to introduce a two-month long programme in the government schools from July 27.
This 60-day programme is a follow-up action to the training programme being given to the headmasters of schools during the first week of this month. The headmasters were told to improve the abilities of the students in reading, writing and in doing simple arithmetic. They were told to take up the programme on a priority basis.
Labelled as Learning Enhancement Programme (LEP), the special training to the students would be conducted for those in higher and upper primary schools. Under the programme, the students would be trained in reading and writing in Telugu and English. They would also be trained in additions, divisions and multiplications.
As part of the programme, a preliminary examination would be held to find out the student who did not have abilities like reading, writing and doing arithmetic. However, the tenth-class students would be exempted from this test.
Those well versed with 3Rs, reading, writing and recalling would be trained to attain standard of the class which they have been studying. The headmasters were told to allot six, seven and eight periods every day for 60 days to the LEP. One period should be allotted to Telugu, second one for English and the third one to mathematics.
Students should be grouped as per the marks that they obtain in the preliminary exam. Each group may comprise 20 students while one teacher would be allotted for each of the group. The headmasters were told to maintain the records of the minutes of the meetings they hold with the teachers. If any teacher shows reluctance to take the up the responsibility, a complaint would be made to the officials concerned and if the headmaster is found to be reluctant to take action, he/she would be held responsible.
Under the LEP programme, the students would be made to read, write and to do simple arithmetic after 60 days training. They must be able to read in Telugu and English proficiently and should be able to understand the subject. They should also be able to write a paragraph on their own. Students who could read and write would be trained in reading stories, songs, poems and writing essays in Telugu and English.
The headmasters were told to utilise the material being supplied to them in the training camp. They should create an awareness among the teachers before taking up the LEP. After the completion of the 60-day programme, one more test will be conducted to the students to test their proficiency.
