10. How does Suchitra offer the International methodology of education?
Suchitra is a CBSE school offering International methodology of education. We offer holistic education where the class-room teaching is child-centric. The chalk and talk method of teaching and allowing rote learning are anathema to us. PBL (Project based learning) is the way forward and marks integrated learning in the class room.
The teacher is only a guide or facilitator who ignites the interest of the students and lets the students explore and analyze until they find the right answers.
Use of multimedia and AV aids and emphasis on research work makes Suchitra a world class school following contemporary teaching techniques.
Class-Rooms with Interactive Smart Boards and high speed internet make the child’s experience multi-sensorial and transaction of curriculum easier/effective and efficient.
Creating an environment of curiosity in the classroom and teaching in order to meet a need-to-learn is of prime importance.
