In order to deal with the competency gaps caused amid the pandemic, Delhi’s Directorate of Education (DoE) has chalked out a two-phase plan. The two-phase plan will be effective for the Delhi government school students of classes III to IX, beginning from the next academic session that is due to begin on April 1st.
As it will be the first time that the younger students will begin offline classes after the pandemic, the DoE has directed the government schools to focus on the emotional well-being and foundational skills of the students in the first quarter of the academic session. Following the two-plan approach, the class-wise syllabus will be reduced in order to encourage the students to gain clarity of concepts and rebuild their foundational competencies. Further, the educators will be specially trained to address the learning issues faced by children and effectively implement the two-phase plan.
According to the new plan, two hours of the school day in government schools across Delhi will be dedicated to the Happiness curriculum. It will also include numeracy and basic reading sessions under the government’s “Mission Buniyad”.
