Umeed Follow-Through Program Video-Lessons
Video lessons covering the science and social studies topics of the Classes 3,4 and 5 are shown regularly and assessed with short tests.
World over, the impact of the Headstart program was not sustained for too long as the effects of the training wore off in primary classes. A follow through program brings continuity to the headstart program and diminishes dropouts. Interventions have been designed to augment student learning and critical thinking that were introduced in the preschool to follow through in their primary classes.
One such aid is the bilingual video lessons and the connected formative assessment worksheets in both Urdu and English. Prepared for Urdu Medium as well as English Medium Primary classes these lessons aid the students’ learning and critical thinking. The commentary is bilingual to help the Urdu Medium learner also pick up the English Medium terminology. This will ultimately help bridge the gap between the two mediums.
At a pilot phase, Video lessons covering the science and social studies topics of the Classes 3,4 and 5 are shown regularly and assessed with short tests. The topics are as follows:
Changes in living things
Needs of living things
Classification of living things
Food and health
Our land, people, and climate
Properties of light
Some video lessons deal with General Knowledge and Civic sense and citizenship which are crucial aspects in the education of these less privileged children.
