In addition to common teaching methods like discussion, demonstration, United School heavily employs strategies of facilitative teaching to make the experiential learning a true reality. Our students play a much more active role in their learning where the prime role of the teacher is to facilitate students’ efforts and progress. Students are encouraged to explore problems and come up with their own solutions.
Project Based Learning
PBL shifts the teaching-learning program from teacher based/instruction based/textbook based to a student-centered paradigm. Along with personalized learning and learning in-depth strategies, PBL allows teachers, parents, and other members of the community to engage with the students collectively to make their learning successful. The success of PBL is to develop competency among the students as they get a chance to discuss and interact with the evidence/ data collected. In addition, teachers and students get an opportunity to have powerful learning experiences through collaborative planning, designing, or redesigning a project for authentic and varied assessments for a lesson.Learn More
We believe it is vital for our students to work cooperatively and support each other. Cooperative learning is the instructional use of small groups so that students work together to maximize their and each other's learning. Cooperative learning activities are given through discussions, class assignments, projects, exercises, and events. Students get to discuss, hear and see from different perspectives. Understanding an opposing viewpoint helps keep students grounded in a debate and prevents them from characterizing or generalizing people who think differently from them. The goal of cooperative learning is to give students an understanding of how society functions, and it is also a critical skill required in colleges, workplaces, and life.
At United, students are mandatorily required to participate in different co-curricular classes and competitions. Co-curricular activities enrich and supplement classroom learning. Annually, there are more than 50 events and competitions in which students can participate. Taking part in a co-curricular activity relevant to the topic presented in the classroom helps clarify and reinforce theoretical understanding at a higher level. The classroom is primarily responsible for intellect, whereas co-curricular activities assist aesthetic development, character building, spiritual growth, physical growth, moral values, and creativity.Learn More
