SUBJECT BASED LEARNING

“EDUCATION IS NOT THE FILLING OF A POT BUT THE LIGHTING OF A FIRE.” - W.B. YEATS

Subject-based learning is a conservative and most obvious way to organize the curriculum through a subject-centered approach. It is a scientifically proven fact that when learning is through subject-specific approach there is a significant improvement in the four skills - speaking, listening, reading and writing.

At Presidium, our subject-based learning methods not only focus on teaching the subjects but teaching and completing the curriculum with different methods which are imperative in building life-skills and talents.

Without the knowledge of subjects, one cannot apply them in real life situations. So, in our subject-based learning approach the emphasis is not on rote learning but the central objective is student mastery of content knowledge. The teacher presents content and skills to students in a logical sequence. This step-by-step approach ensures that students gain all the information and skills needed to master this content area.

The subjects covered by Presidium are:
Grades 1 to 8:
  • English
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Science
  • EVS
  • Hindi
  • Spanish
  • French
  • Sanskrit
  • Physical Education
The subjects covered by Presidium are:
Grades 9 to 12:
  • Information Technology
  • Computer Science
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Business Studies
  • Economics
  • Accountancy
  • History
  • Geography
  • Political Science
  • Psychology

The curriculum for each core subject is unique at Presidium as it breaks away from conventional ways of teaching. To make this happen curriculum planners at Presidium create detailed Instruction Maps (I maps) for teachers to understand the what, why and how of teaching and learning process. To accomplish this teachers are provided with supporting tools and aid to execute the iMaps- like the abacus, science lab, audio-video presentations etc- which ignite a spark in students for better learning.

THEME BASED LEARNING

Theme-based learning – or the practice of integrating curriculum areas around a related topic- helps learning become more relevant for students. The theme-based approach creates an environment where students acquire a taste for lifelong learning. Keeping this vision in mind we conduct theme-based learning at Presidium. This approach helps students to dream and passionately pursue their dreams by participating in multiple theme-based, varied and meaningful activities carefully designed to achieve specific objectives in every term.

Learning through themes gives students an opportunity to see learning as a connected process that has application to real life. So indirectly, we give wings to the imagination and ensure knowledge development not only in students but also in teachers involved. This further enables them to think out of the box, make connections, transfer knowledge and apply it, thereby strengthening their learning process.

Also, when a theme is central to learning for a stipulated time-period, students explore it through several disciplines. Therefore at Presidium, we conduct certain subject based theme learning weeks such as- science week, math week, Hindi week etc. The other main themes for different grades include:

This depth of learning combined with field trips and meetings with experts in the field brings more relevance to learning.

PROJECT BASED LEARNING

PRESIDIUM with the aim of channelizing abundant energy into right direction has made PROJECT BASED LEARNING a part of its official curriculum.

Project based learning is a process of solving real world problems through active exploration. By doing so the students adopt a creative and authentic approach and the real world becomes the class room for application of curriculum based learning.
Project based learning requires high level skills like critical thinking, collaboration, reflection, ideation, and finally application. Students dig into the content for a rich and comprehensive understanding. It involves applying research into practice which can take many forms like:

  • Assignment sheets
  • Poster making
  • Dioramas
  • 3D Models
  • PowerPoint slides
  • Journals

By doing so a numerous benefits have been observed by the teachers and students themselves like-

  • A greater depth of understanding of concept
  • Broader knowledge base
  • Improved communication and interpersonal/social skills
  • Enhanced leadership skills
  • Increased creativity
  • Improved writing skills
