Education is an important tool for development that enables people to acquire skills, knowledge, attitudes and values for a sustainable future. As a volunteer in this program, you will be teaching spoken English, basic Math, Health and Hygiene Awareness, Environmental Education and conducting co-curricular activities with local schools. The schools are Kannada/Tamil Medium schools, lacking in resources and/or English teaching staff.
One of the important aims of this project is to support the staff in the classroom and to bring an international dimension to the learning process. Your main task will be to assist with English language learning using creative teaching methods to encourage and to develop learning levels and cognitive skills of the students. You will also assist with extra-curricular activities, inspiring children to learn new languages and learn about new cultures.
Additionally, the following tasks may also require your assistance:
• Developing teaching and learning aids with low cost or no cost locally available materials, and facilitating simulation games for the children and the teaching faculties.
• Designing developmentally appropriate tools and criteria for assessment of children’s learning levels and cognitive skills; Individual goal setting for children with learning disability; Lesson planning, etc.
• Developing teaching-learning methods and passing this information (through the Final Evaluation/Report) to future volunteers with a view to creating long-term improvements to the educational model.
The volunteers are encouraged to bring creative ideas to initiate new activities in the school, for example, environmental, organizational or computer education. It is important for the children to feel your love and care for them, as they will be around you every day. If you have ideas for teaching different kinds of activities such as games, songs, arts and crafts or sports and athletics to children, then this project is for you! You will be teaching a variety of subjects depending on your personal interests and skills. Previous experience in teaching children will be useful.
