Curriculum for Pre-Primary
The school is following one of the most advanced and unique teaching system called E-DAC. This teaching method has been created by group of leading educationists and researchers at Educomp’s R&D wing. In E-DAC teaching method, the emphasis is on learning through activities.
E-DAC is an acronym in which each letter signifies each stage of the four-stage sequence and methodology that is applied in the classroom. The learner here learns through a joyous discovery of the self and the world around, leading to positive outcomes. E-DAC approach to learning is an innovative yet scientifically designed methodology which is based on the fact that gaining knowledge is a never-ending process.
- E – Engage, excite and encourage the learner to learn through environment
- D – Discover and learn by doing, and document to retain knowledge
- A – Assimilate, analyze and apply knowledge and skill
- C – Consolidate, construct and create to build and add to existing learning and skill for continuous development of the child
E – Engage, excite and encourage
E-DAC™ is based on the belief that learning happens when attitude and perceptions are positive. Since all learners are unique, varied activities are planned to cater to their individual needs and learning styles. This ensures that learner develops a positive attitude towards the learning to be acquired. In other words this stage builds interest and curiosity with which a child will begin her journey to learn. Here, the curriculum also uses the environment—both within and outside the classroom—as a medium of teaching-learning. Therefore, the environment is made conducive through the The Walls Speak concept, where even the walls of the classroom are used as teaching aids.
D –Discover, do and document
The learner internalises knowledge through experience. Facilitators are equipped with the E-DAC™ teaching strategies that help the learner discover and learn through three phases- guided learning (gaining knowledge on a given topic), problem-based learning (learning by doing) and expository learning (documenting the learning experience). It provides creatively designed textbooks, workbooks along with skill-building exercises and projects for the learner to encourage the spirit of discovery and enquiry. With every discovery the learner pauses to internalise and then documents his/her learning in his /her unique style.
A – Assimilate, Analyse and apply
Learning does not stop with merely acquiring knowledge. The most effective learning occurs when a learner is able to use acquired knowledge meaningfully. It is important to note that from this stage the learner starts the ‘processing of learning’. Learners are assignedtoh the context-specific tasks where they apply their newly acquired knowledge. This stage requires higher order thinking skills in which the learner begins to think on his/her own and puts the knowledge gained to practical use. Here, E-DAC™ introduces the learner toproblem-solvingg as well as builds life skills through exciting real life situations.
C – Consolidate, construct and create
E-DAC™ ensures that the mind acquires knowledge for life through its various sequential stages &allows the learner to make constructive use of the existing knowledge. Its aim is to help the learner create and exhibit something new in the form she is comfortable with, so that it is socially useful to the society. This paves the way for the students to evolve and progress.
Curriculum (Classes I to V)
XSEED is a proven research-based academic program for schools that builds thinking skills & problem solving confidence in children. XSEED children ask more questions, can write in their own words, like solving word problems in mathematics, can complete their homework on their own, are not afraid to speak up in English, persist longer in solving problems, and score well on tests.
Improving quality of learning, managing parents’ expectations and yet managing financial viability is a challenge for education leaders. XSEED is a proven solution that provides the answer. Visible benefits of XSEED are the Unafraid and the Confident child. The result is proud parents who spread the word. With XSEED, teachers begin a class by clearly stating the learning goal, ask children what they know already, demonstrate an experiment or conduct a group activity, let children speak before they do, ensure that “application questions” are done independently, fiercely believe in practice, assess daily and support each child individually.
XSEED’s solution is a scalable teaching toolkit for educating any child based on a scientific 5-Step Learning Process.
Curriculum (Classes VI to VIII)
In classes VI-VIII, students build on the foundation laid in the primary school.
New challenges are met as:
- problem solving
- value judgement
Our aim is to provide a broad-based curriculum which facilitates in-depth study of the key elements of English, Hindi, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, (History, Geography, Civics), Art, Computer Science, Music, Yoga, Dance, Drama, Physical Education and Health Education.
A detailed curricular framework is formulated, which is a blend of both, the primary programme (which continues up to class V) and the Central Board of Secondary Education Curriculum. This framework would ensure progression and continuity through the school.
