Alternative academic calendar for secondary school students released
NEW DELHI [Maha Media]: Union Human Resource Development minster has released an alternative academic calendar for secondary school students on Saturday. The alternative academic calendar is developed by NCERT to help in keeping the students busy and at the same time maintain continuity of their learning during the lockdown period.
“Schools, Colleges and Universities have been closed. Students are confined to their homes, and so are teachers and parents. Teacher educators, teachers and parents need to find ways to deal with this unprecedented situation arising out of the lockdown in order to engage students meaningfully through educational activities at home.
However, the concept of homework is that of a task done individually; moreover, it carries with it the pressure of completion rather than that of joyful learning.
Informing about the release of the alternative calendar for the Secondary school students on Saturday, HRD minister tweeted on the microblogging site Twitter, “My dear Secondary School students, I am releasing Alternative Academic Calendar today, for your benefit. During the lockdown period, you can use this calendar for week-wise planning, with reference to theme/chapter taken from syllabus or textbook. http://ncert.nic.in/aac.html”.
