Thiruavnanthapuram: The final draft of the special syllabi that aim to help students in mentally preparing for academics after a long stay-at-home is ready ahead of the school reopening in Kerala on 1 November. Education Minister V Sivankutty inaugurated the state-level meeting to plan the teacher empowerment programme based on these syllabi.

Each school should prepare teaching materials that suit the unique syllabus that has been designed by considering the local situations, the Minister said.

Teachers and instructors should assist the students in bridging the gap in academics and support them in improving their skills by adjusting with the new methods. The students who are seeing the schools for the first time too should get special attention, Sivankutty urged.

Students who have not attended on–campus classes for over a year could face some difficulties in learning. So there must be projects aimed to identify those issues and solve them. Schools should be provided with the teaching materials and work sheets that could help the students, he stated, while adding that the teaching and learning processes should happen by understanding the strength and weaknesses of each student.

Earlier the state had come out with a comprehensive set of guidelines for all stakeholders for ensuring smooth and safe conduct of classes as schools reopen after a long shutdown necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
