Right since the tender age of 4 and 5 children have been exposed to beautiful short stories, folktale, fables, etc. All with the intention to instill the right values, attitude and lessons in them. The stories read, topics taught, the events organized in the school are imparted effectively. However the lessons learnt from every learning experience are not implemented in its complete sense to real life problems faced by the students.
Take a minute and recall the story of “The Thirsty Crow”. What moral were we forced to learn from this story as children? “Think and work hard, you may find solution to any problem.” The problem doesn’t lie in the moral, the problems lies in how we as teachers enable our students to discover the moral. It is important to teach morals or lessons but to teach them ways of implementing these morals in real life is of greater utility.
A failure to enable to students to apply lessons effectively in life results in poor development of Life Skills amongst school students. Thus Rizvi College of Education conducts a talk on Life skills Education for pre-service teachers so that they can learn the plethora of ways in which students can be encouraged to learn effective ways of bouncing back in life.
