Debate Club - 2014-15

Language Club Activities

“All that is worth knowing cannot be taught or learned in the classroom environment” Co-curricular school activities can provide appropriate challenges and avenues to achievement and help establish a balance between educating for academic growth and educating for transition to self-hood. The club is for the students who come with a certain maturity and skills-proficiency level. The focus is on whole language experience of English coupled with exercises to sharpen specific linguistic skills. Following are the activities to induce interest and foster individual and group learning atmosphere:

1)  To increase students stock of vocabulary, charts on vocabulary games were made by the students

2) To induce interest and generate awareness about the words having same spelling but different meaning and sounds i.e., Homophones, homonyms and heteronyms charts were made and displayed

3)  In order to prepare the students to cater the demand of innovation by the international schools, Dr. Kalpana Kharade guided me to encourage and prepare students to design and develop International level teaching plans on any one skill of English, along with that students were encouraged to make attractive teaching aids and worksheets. 

4) Under the expert guidance of Dr. Kalpana Kharade, I conducted one more activity to strengthen the students’ ability to make innovative and attractive teaching aids, wherein each student was encouraged to make a separate activity with its procedure of conduction and equally innovative worksheet for evaluation.

Note: Both the activities ( 3rd and 4th activity) received a huge response as students made and enthusiastically presented in the class and submitted their teaching plans and teaching aids in beautifully decorated boxes.

5) Concept Maps were told to make by the students on the great authors of English, which would include their contribution to literature, their famous anthologies and Biography.

6) To increase their awareness about the different letter writing skills charts on the components of letter writing were made and displayed.

7) Students were encouraged to make substitution tables’ chart for parts of speech.

8) At the end of the session it has been decided to keep an exhibition for various teaching aids and the innovative lesson plans and activities made by the students.


Maths Club Activities

About the Math Club

The Math Club consists of student teachers who are the organisers of activities, secretary, display board in charge, finance in charge along with the other student members of the Maths club. The club is formed in the beginning of the year and roles are picked voluntarily by the student teachers   


The purpose of the Math Club is to spread mathematical knowledge and promote the field in an enjoyable and educational environment. 


One important aspect of learning mathematics is mastering practical techniques, such as addition, division, measurement, and so on. Critical thinking skills may be required to apply these techniques to complex problems. Another (often neglected) aspect of doing mathematics involves creativity and imagination. The Math Club meets once a month from September through March and membership is open to all students. There are different members who volunteered for organising of activities of Maths club.The club provides the opportunity to socialize and share ideas. Hopefully, experiencing the wonders of math will result in a positive attitude toward the subject that will create enthusiasm in the future prospective teachers.

Activities of Maths Club for the academic year

  • Experimenting paper activities

Student teachers prepared a Mathematics journal which exposed them to learning by doing Here the faculty in charge along with some of the students volunteering identified the experiments and demonstrated so that the other student teachers could do the same in the Maths lab.  

  • Designing Multicultural lesson resources

The students who were having different religious background were identified so as to include the elements of their own religion into the Mathematical concepts being taught. These students were made to write the lesson plans based on it.

  • Instructional Material

Students prepared worksheets based on different topics of Maths along with charts & other activities based resources.

  • Preparing a Mathematical Dictionary :

Students identified the words which were not so commonly used and created a dictionary as a part of activities of Maths club.

  • Research Reviews of Maths

In order to broaden the horizon of Maths students teachers the volunteers read the different researches related to Maths.

  • Conducting seminars

Students here surveyed the resources which were found in collaboration with faculty in charge. Some presentations were made under this like Vedic Maths and the contribution of Mathematicians. This enabled the student teachers to get the surveying & presentation skills


 Science Club Activities

When we were a child, we wanted to know a great deal about the world around us. Children still do. Sooner 

or later they ask question like-

Why a spider doesn’t get stuck in its own web?

How does a bird get in the egg?

Where does the dark come from?

What makes the wind blow?

If we have asked these questions as a child how thoughtfully would our teachers had handled them? Were we able to explore some of our own interest? Was learning more restricted? Were we guided to think through some problems for ourselves? or were the answers always given? How a teacher works with children reflects their notion about Science teaching and how they think it can benefit their pupils?

A school can give some instruction materials but a teacher’s concept and values about Science teaching will strongly affect what children actually learn in her classroom. Hence our Science club is committed towards Inculcation of these values of Science involving ‘learning by doing’ and ‘learning by living’ among pre-service Science teachers. Some glimpse of the activities conducted  are enumerated as under

  • Proactive participation on enlightenment on various Science concepts and contents
  • Motivational speech , guidance and demonstration on preparation on improvised apparatus 
  • working on various Scientific principles
  • Actual preparation of improvised apparatus in a cost effective manner and demonstrating 
  • with methodical explanation
  • Exhibiting the improvised apparatus and Science activities so as to imbibe the Science concepts
  • Preparation of posters on scientific discoveries, inventions, principles or theories related to Science and exhibiting them at appropriate platform
  • Instigating and assisting students in preparation of innovative activities in science and also using them in real classroom setting like practice teaching

History Magazine( B Ed 2015-16): Bygone Times(Special Reference to Mughal Era)

The History Club was formed in the first semester which included thirteen students of History method. Ms. Hema Peese was the History Club in charge who guided and supervised student’s club activities.

The club conducted activities such as making historical monuments, role play, dramatization, maintaining the history club board, co-operative learning, making innovative lesson plans and creative worksheets and different techniques.

The members of the History club were Riddhi Jadhav, Priyanka Lobo, Satyapriya Chettiar, Madhushree Baliga, Ashvini Pandey, Pooja Wagaskar, Apurva Mahekar, Asma Navrekar, Aditi Kudalkar, Ushma Saraiya, Samanaaz Irani, Smriti Behal and Medha Limaye.

Historical Model Making:

Students made models of historical forts such as Sindhudurg, Raighad and Shivneri. The models were made using plaster of Paris with the help of a professional; they also made the main detailed model and later painted and placed the small soldiers and Shivaji Maharaj models. They also made the miniature model of Golgumbus. Thermocol was used to make the main model and wood was used to make the base. For grass they used green colored wool. The models were showcased and later kept as teaching aids for history lessons.

Dramatization and role play:

Ø  In the history club they also learned dramatization and role play techniques to teach the subject. Ms Hema Peese made three groups and gave us three different scenes of a historical event. Students were asked to make a script and present a small drama of 10-15mins. All three groups presented their drama in elaborate way with dialogues and action sequence if showing a war scene.

Ø  Similarly in the role play, Ms Hema Pesse asked the three groups to give each other scenes from the history text book to each other. Students were given 10mins to discuss the dialogues and how to in act that particular scene for the presentation. They enjoyed both the dramatization and the role play session immensely because it was something innovative and a break from the mundane routine of college.

Co-operative learning:

In one of history club activities, students also learned co-operative learning techniques. Instructor again made groups gave them print outs of different techniques explanation.

Ms Hema gave each group a technique and asked them to understand it thoroughly and later explain it to the rest of them. This thought itself was very novel because it was obvious that students learn better from friends or classmates rather than the teacher herself. By asking every member of the group to understand one technique thoroughly, Ms Hema ensured every member’s better understanding of all the techniques by doing it ourselves.

Seminar presentation:

Ms Hema gave the varied topics related to history and students surveyed the resources which were found in collaboration with faculty in charge and presented the topic in seminar form. This enabled the student teachers to get the surveying & presentation skills

Innovative lesson plans and worksheets:

Ms Hema had also asked students to make lesson plans and creative worksheets of the topics of their choice. They were asked to make 7 different lesson plans using newly introduced methods such as 2 multiple intelligence, Source method, dramatization, role play, generalization and co-operative learning. They also made colorful worksheets to make it more attractive and fun loving.

History club bulletin board:

Every week students updated new news on their history club bulletin board. This included historical facts, current affairs, mythological facts and evidences, etc. a student was also appointed to maintain a different file for the board where they store every article showcased on the board.

The history club activities were something that every group member looked forward to. Here they learned many different techniques which were very useful during their practice teaching sessions. The students of schools especially enjoyed the dramatization and role play activities which B Ed students conducted in the classrooms.
