The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has asked its affiliated schools to submit a ‘pedagogical plan’ which will be a detailed report comprising of their assessment plan and vision.
The recent circular requires principals to work as pedagogical leaders, which means they have to set learning objectives for students to ensure a learning outcome based teaching process. Principals will combine the plans submitted by all teachers and come up with a detailed plan for the school, which will then be submitted to the board.
The circular states, ‘Each teacher must have the capacity to make her/his lesson plan for each lesson to be taught by her. The lesson plans must be innovative, based on experiential learning and preferably integrate art into the pedagogy’. Principals also mentioned that they will have to submit the details of academic and extra-curricular activities conducted by the school through the year.
All schools have to send their pedagogical plans to the board by September 30.
