  • All the 17 discourses to be covered i.e., no discourses is exempted from the syllabus.
  • We must not confuse that the unit 2 is exempted not the drama script as a discourse. That means there may be a question for drama script or play based on other units and their context. In the similar manner for all other classes too, only the textual syllabus is exempted.

Suggested strategies to conduct the classes 👇👇👇

        It is suggested to prepare mind maps, interactive questions to generate sub-text, model reading by the teachers, asking the children to underline important points, reading aloud by the students, giving contextual meanings, asking different questions to make the child understand the text better using different kinds of questions like, filling the blanks, finding true or false, matching, multiple choice questions and these based on factual, inferential and open ended nature. Teachers are asked to transact the class according to the Discourse Oriented Pedagogy. It is stressed to concentrate on discourses based practice from minor to major, simple to compound, easy to difficult.

        It is stressed to concentrate on all the aspects of the language like vocabulary, grammar, comprehension, discourses based on LSRW. Also stressed to keep an eye on learning outcomes while preparing for the transaction.
