A STEP AHEAD
The Fabindia School started summer training for teacher’s on 11th May 15 with English proficiency and information technology classes. In English proficiency classes Mr Mithilesh Patro is training teachers with telephonic teaching, interactive classroom teaching by correct pronunciations and breaking spelling. He is trying to modify speech habits by tongue twisters, English songs and group activities. In information technology classes Mr. Sandeep Singh teaches various steps to improve teaching efficiency with technology in classroom. Now a days it is one of the most preferred method of learning. I think through this English proficiency and information technology classes teachers feel more confident in their classes and can make their teaching more effective.

We all know that English and IT is very essential for everyone. We mostly use it but we don't know how to properly use it. Thanks to the Principal Ma'am and Chairman Sir that they organized this training for us. I have learnt many new words, pronunciation, framing questions, correct use of sentences, new technical terms in Google Drive like how to create and upload a file and folder. I raised my level of confidence and conversation skill in a group.

Mother Teacher Class II

This year through our English and IT Training I have gained lot of confidence.  I have learnt pronunciation of words and also learnt how one can improve English through songs, tongue twisters and grammar. In IT I have learnt to use Google Drive so I can share my work with my colleagues and improve my lessons using the new technology.  I want to thank Principal Ma'am for giving us the opportunity to improve ourselves.
Prerna Rathod

English Training has helped me to add on in my knowledge. I have learnt a lot in phonetics which will be a help in my English teaching in Classes. I am happy that through this English training my colleagues will also improve and we all together as a team will be able to raise the quality of teaching in the school. IT teaching is very essential for us. I am not good at Computers, but this IT training will help me to work on Google Drive and will be able to improve my lessons using the new technology. I want to thank Principal Ma’am and all those behind the curtain for giving us this opportunity to become more efficient.

This was the second week for the English Proficiency Classes. Mr. Patro is doing his best to improve the pronunciation of the teachers and to help them converse in English comfortably. For that he arranged an Skype Conversation with his sister Eenakshi and her family who stays in Vancouver in Canada. All the teachers were divided into five groups who would converse with Eenakshi one by one. This exercise was done to help the teachers to converse and open and come out of their shell.On the first day he gave three keywords CONFIDENCE, VERSATILITY and AUTHORITY. He mentioned the importance of English Language. Why should we use it. The class was divided into five groups with a group leader. Teachers were asked to jot down their expectations from the workshop. In the five days workshop a lot of phonetic drill took place, to help teachers articulate correctly and clearly. One can see some changes in teachers already. Their diction is clearer. Most of the Hindi Language teachers have also started conversing in English by using simple words and sentences. Teachers are enjoying the workshop as it has been made more musical by singing songs. Singing songs is not only helps in pronouncing words but it is also helps to learn English easily. It has also taught teachers how they can make their class more interesting and musical.

Mr. Mithilesh Patro’s Point of View
(ED: Editor, MP: Mithilesh Patro)
ED: What was the picture in your mind of the teachers you were going to train before you visited The Fabindia School?
MP: I had a vague picture as to what to expect because I had done a similar intensive course in Jalore. The teachers there were mostly from a Malayam  background whose pronunciation was typical from the area they were from. Therefore, I had a brief picture, as to what to expect in Bali as Ms. Deepika Tandon had already mentioned that I will have teachers from a traditional Rajasthani background for whom English was not considered something as important as compared to Maths and Science. That was the picture that I had in my mind when I came to Bali and to an extent it was quite correct.

ED: When you reached here and taught the teachers and conversed with them, you find it?
MP: I found the teachers as I had expected. Probably it was not important to them that they should be conversant with English. When I was introduced to the teachers I impressed upon them that though they were not fluent they should be comfortable with English and should be able to communicate in English as they are teachers.

Once they started their course they slowly got it into their heads, that yes, English is an important language not the cost of other languages, but in relation to the work that they are doing as educators, as teachers; because they have to have Confidence which gives them the Authority to command and impart knowledge and the Versatility to obtain information from any source . I am glad they have imbibed this and are putting it into practice so I definitely see a change. They are improving by leaps and bounds. Usha came up centre stage gave a presentation; she is a person who usually finger reads. But yet she came and spoke without any notes or aids and was concise and quite clear. I felt humbled by her effort.

ED: After five days of your workshop with the teachers what are the changes that you see?
MP: The teachers are speaking up now and they have no hesitation in taking center stage and presenting their views. They may not be quite grammatically correct, but they are trying hard. I am glad to say that the concept of using big words for the sake of using them has been done away with. They have got this concept of using simple English and correct English.

ED:  One thing I would like to ask you that are Rules of Grammar important to learn and what are your views about it?
MP: Rules are necessary, they are a form of guidelines. We have to have rule books. Unfortunately in India the teaching of English Grammar has become a different subject in itself. Grammar is taught for the sake of rules and four or five examples are given to buttress those rules. There is no course where English conversation and a lesson of listening where you see and hear words being formed from a person’s mouth is taught. We feel that if we have learnt Grammar we have learnt English. That’s quite misleading, we are good exponents of grammar rules, but absolutely atrocious "pronouncers" of the English word.

ED: What do you say about Circle time?
MP:  Circle Time is very necessary. It is a time when it draws the people out of their shells. A lot of teachers who speak in front of their students   go into their shells when public interaction is involved. Circle time is when they come out of their shells breaking their barriers of tradition and difference of cultures and gender, etc. You have to have circle time as it brings them close. Holding hands brings one close. You can’t be a teacher if you can’t influence or get close to other people.

ED: On your observation give us a feedback.
MP: I have seen teachers trying hard. Usha is someone to whom I raise my hats off to. A 50 plus craft teacher, a finger reader trying hard to read with a finger and to keep up with the speed of the other teachers, today gave a speech without the help of any aids. I was a bit worried when I saw Byju, a person of substantial authority, but I see him accepting instructions willingly. Ajay and Raj have also shown a change in them. I was able to convince Raj that as Science is a precise subject and the terminology is in English and so it is important she should learn English.

I have tried to change the mentality of the teachers   to use simple words and simple sentences. It is not imperative that they look into a Thesaurus or Synonyms and use bombastic words. I have emphasized that the use of simple words and sentences leads to correct English.

Thank You Sir for all what we have gained from and hope to gain more in the coming days from your teaching.

Aylette Jennise’s Interview
(A JBSF Member)
(ED: Editor, AJ: Aylette Jennise)
ED: How was your experience with the Class when you visited?
AJ: When I visited the Class II, I was not experienced in what we call in America ESL. English is a second language in India. So to see the teacher say a sentence in English, then the children repeat it was really very interesting. When it was necessary she would speak in Hindi and most of the time the teachers would speak in English. I was impressed to see mostly the entire little children could read English and I call this is a good way of teaching. The teacher of Class II Ms. Sharmila was a very forceful, energetic and very interactive teacher. And the teacher of Class I was little different, she was more quiet but the children were paying attention. I have seen two different styles of teaching.

ED: What are your views about the Indian education system and American education system? How can we compare both these systems?
AJ: I can say this is a huge question. I can barely think about that. I don't know much about schools. Well the school I remained in the most was quite informal, so by comparison this school seems formal. But I think it’s much less formal than many Indian schools. And I am impressed with the eagerness and excitement in the school students. I think that I see more here than I do in America.

ED: What suggestions would you like to give us to develop the school?
AJ: That's a very hard question because I feel so new to be here. I guess one of the ideas is to encourage more creative thinking in students and less emphasis perhaps on repeating back what the teacher said. More attention should be paid to creative thinking. But I am very impressed with the school. I haven't seen yet the art work of the school, but I was a photographer myself and an artist. One must age as an artist. Art is important for me. And I yet don't know what place art has in this school for I have not seen it in the school.

ED:  How old is the JBSF?
AJ: Oh! Dear you asked me another hard question and I don't know the answer. My understanding is that John's sister Marie originated this - the person always In Charge of the fund. I don't know when it started. I was not a part of it in the beginning I was asked to join it about 5 years ago. We meet twice a year, we meet at John sister’s house. I and Marine talk about how the fund is going and how more charges we can add to raise the fund. Katherine Allen is her mother and she is the one who really can answer where I can ask the question at the beginning of the JBSF fund. But mostly the donors friends of the family or relatives who are the donors. We have never gone to ask help from any other organizations to raise funds.

ED: Do you also face some challenges in raising up the funds?
AJ:  Yes, I think at the moment we are limited by a circle of friends and me need about other sources. I think we need to be get connected to the Indian American Community. And need to be make contacts with Mr. Sandeep Dutt to see funds there.

ED: Are the members of JBSF till now only Americans?
AJ: I think, Yes.

ED: Do the donors ask any questions when they give funds?
AJ: This is a sort of house-keeping question. This is the confusion what to tell the donors. Originally, we used to say that you have to give 250 dollars which will go to a rural school. But Mr. Dutt said it is a kind of marketing. We need to educate our donors that they are contributing to the educational world.

ED: When they give money are they interested to know right to the digit zero? Where the money is going or how it is used?
AJ: I don’t think so, particularly. They come to know by looking at the website.  Honestly we get so many requests for funding from so many organizations. It becomes so over warming, so we ask Katherine to make a Newsletter full of human interest. .

ED:  What message would you like to give to the students and staff?
AJ: Congratulation for building a wonderful school. I am so impressed. And good luck will live to continue. The school is wonderful. It is so calm, peaceful. The students act independently. I am just impressed .A lot of change has come. I would love to come back next year and see the Art Work.

Thank You Ma’am for your suggestions about creative thinking and contribution in the JBSF

People think that

But I always feel
why they are so absurd?
Yes, I can be a bird,

Why people tell me to feel shy?
Do they not want me to try?
I am fed up of their thoughts.
And want to give my ideas a shot.
I want to make use of all that I was taught.
And want to enjoy like a bird a lot.
So never be scared of absurd thoughts.
