GETTING IN SHAPE - Post-training, teachers to help crack entrance tests

Around 1,200 teachers of Standard XI and XII will soon be trained to help students prepare for crucial national-level entrance exams such as the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) and National Eligibility and Entrance Test (NEET) as well as the Maharashtra Health and Technical Common Entrance Test (MHT CET).

The education department of Pune division has decided to impart the training with the aim that teachers would be able to inculcate elements of competitive exam coaching in their daily lessons.

“The daylong training will be to help teachers understand the nuances of competitive examinations. We need more and more students to crack the national level entrance examination as well as those conducted at the state-level. The focus is not only on the entrance exams, but to provide guidance for better teaching practices for the Std XII board examinations,“ said an official from the office of the deputy director of education, Pune division. Teachers, particularly tho se who hold lectures on the science subject, working with any college can attend the freeof-cost training session. The workshop will be held across all three districts under the division, namely Pune, Solapur and Ahmednagar.

On November 10 and 11, the training session for PhysicsMathematics and ChemistryBiology will be held in Solapur from 9am to 5pm. The same schedule will be followed in Pune on November 14 and 15, while the workshop will be held in Ahmednagar on November 15 and 16.

On condition of anonymity, a Pune-based teacher stated that one-day workshops would hardly make any difference in the student's approach towards enrolling with coaching institutes. “It's important to understand that every subject under consideration is vast in nature. So, the training should be spread across at least three days for each subject. At the scheduled training sessions, a single subject will hardly get three hours. Secondly , the way to teach for board exams is different from the manner in which students are taught for competitive exams. Lastly , every examination requires different training. The MHCET is different from JEE, which in turn is different from NEET.Hence, I don't think this workshop will help much,“ the teacher explained.
