This course is for Year Two students pursuing a grade three teachers' certificate course. It has all the topics covered in the second and final year of the course. It builds on year One work with most of the topics carrying the code 11 to the topics. Hope you will enjoy it.

This, I know…, learning doesn't happen in the classroom. Learning happens in the space between a teacher and a student. A connection between two people and an idea. Most people think that teaching is hard. But most people don't understand how hard. And at the end of the day these learners are the reward. Times change. Tools change. But what a learner needs from other human beings does not change. Making that connection is what this job is really all about.


The purpose of this course is to help fellow tutors and student teachers continue to grow professionally. Different emerging issues in science and other areas of specialization will be handled.

T

Agriculture is the practice carried out on land to care for both plants and animals of economic value to man.It is both art and science of growing and rearing crops and animals to meet the individual and family needs.

       Transforming teaching-learning process:
Leading the use of technology in your school

This School Leadership OER (Open Educational Resource) is one of a set of 20 units from TESS- India
designed to help school leaders develop their understanding and skills so that they can lead improvements
in teaching and learning in their school. The units are essentially practical, with activities to be carried out in
school with staff, students and others. They are based on research and academic study of effective schools.
There is no prescribed order for studying the units, but ‘The school leader as enabler’ is the best place to
start, as this provides an orientation for the whole set. You might choose to study the units in combinations
related to specific themes; these ‘families’ of units have been aligned with the National College of School
Leadership Curriculum Framework (India) key areas: ‘Perspective on school leadership’ (1); ‘Managing and
developing self’ (2); ‘Transforming teaching-learning process’ (3); and ‘Leading partnerships’ (6). Key areas 4
and 5, on leading innovation and leading teams, are addressed in multiple units but not as a specific
focus. Some units address more than one key area.
The units can be used by school leaders for self-study or as part of a taught leadership programme. In
either scenario, there are benefits in keeping a personal Learning Diary, and in sharing the learning
experience with others through discussion of the activities and case studies. The term ‘school leader’ is
used in these units to refer to a headteacher, principal, deputy teacher or any individual taking leadership
responsibility in a school.

Religious Education is one of the core courses to be undertaken by all the teacher trainees because of its emphasis on morality. Morality and teachers are inseparable as it is even reflected in Teachers' professional Conduct. All teachers are supposed to be exemplary both with in and outside school, for that matter Religious Education is designed to put emphasis to that.

Course Objectives;

To inculcate morals among the teacher trainees.

To get to know of the similarities and differences among religions

Home economics is one of the components of Integrated Production skills along with Entrepreneurship, Art and Craft, Technical education as well as Agriculture. The purpose of the Home Economics program in the PTE Curriculum is to provide students with the necessary understanding, knowledge and competence in decision-making, problem solving, management of resources, and interpersonal relationships through laboratory experiences which will have practical application to the quality of their personal and/or family life now and in the future. The objectives of the program are: to provide opportunities for the development of self understanding and self-esteem to enable the individual to become a more effective member of the family and of society; to develop abilities and skills for coping effectively with various facets and responsibilities of one’s role(s) in the family, career world and society in general; to be aware of the similarities and differences in individuals and families in order to function within a changing social, economic and technological environment; to gain an understanding of how to manage one’s personal and/or family resources, both human and material, in terms of one’s goals and values; to unitize basic skills and guide him/her in mastering the application of those skills as an expression of functional literacy.

Perhaps you have heard of ICT and its impact on the modern society. ICT is closely linked to the modern inovations in Science and Technology which has led the production, storage and transmission of knowledge using electronic and related devices. Such devices include, computers, culculators, radios, phones among others. Some of them are storage devices such CD ROM DVDs VCDs, flash disks e.t.c. Some are communication tools such as the electronic mail (e-mail) once used for education purposes, aid teaching and learning.
