Innovative Teaching Ideas
11. Multimedia Approach
This method of teaching is very successfully applied to clarify the ideas of the students in the difficult subjects of life science. Through this method, we can use text, audio, animation. There are opportunities to use videos, still images, or interactive content.
I teach students in all classes in this way. Our school has a nice smart classroom. There, with the help of projectors and all other advanced methods, all the teachers in our school give lessons. In this way, the abstract subjects are easily captured by the students.
12. Video Clips
In this way, we show small or large video clips to the students to make them understand the subject easily. They are shown with the help of a laptop. Sometimes they are also shown online with the help of mobile.
Going beyond the traditional chalk and talk method, I teach through this method. I show different subjects in class X, XI, and XII with the help of PowerPoint. For this, I have created many PowerPoint slides. I have an app through which students need their life science. Can take a look at the issues.
14. Virtiz quiz
Virtiz quiz is a very interesting quiz method. In this method, students can ask questions directly. They can only ask questions. The teacher or another student will only say yes or no as an answer. The student has to try to understand the subject while asking questions. With every yes or no they hear, they get closer to a subject. This is a quiz method that is very interesting to them.
15. Science quiz
We do quizzes with students on various subjects in an ascending and descending manner. Through this quiz, students can easily master many subjects. They can gain knowledge on many subjects by playing tricks.
16. Play method
We present various science subjects in the classroom in the guise of playing. To teach the structure of the cell, we select the students one by one as different organs of the cell. One student may act as a ribosome. He will talk about the features of the ribosome. Another student may act as mitochondria or cell membrane or nucleus. He will have to talk about mitochondria etc. In this way, we teach the structure of a cell by playing tricks on the students. It is a lot like role play.
17. Vermicompost project
We all know the disadvantages of chemical fertilizers. Therefore, vermicompost is one of the fertilizers used instead of chemical fertilizers. Vermicompost requires red colored earthworms. Vermicompost is made in the biological process with the help of these earthworms. It is the best fertilizer and can be made very easily. We have vegetable gardens and flower gardens in our school. There we use vermicompost. The students of the school are taught how to make vermicompost. As a result of this education, students will be able to make vermicompost at home as per their needs in the future. They did this project in single and in groups.
18. Organic compost project
Every day many leaves fall from the plants in the school. Besides, many vegetable husks are extracted from the vegetables used in the mid day meal cooking. Tree leaves and vegetable husks are also converted into compost manure in the school. We use it in the garden. Students learn how to make green manures in school. As a result of this education, they can become socially aware. They can also make this fertilizer for themselves in the future. They have done this as a project work.
19. Project on pipe compost on lockdown
I have done a project on pipe composting on lockdown days for my students. I have done this and demonstrate the total procedure and published it on social media for my students.
This method is nowadays becoming an integral part of life science teaching. Activities can be organized In classroom situations. Students can play the role of plants or woodcutters to study environmental issues. They played drama on the plantation, pollution, water conservation or they can represent a scientific group or social workers to demonstrate the particular concept of science or social issues.
