About Us
Details of Education programme (s) 1. Long Term Course on Elementary Language and Literacy: We are offering a 9-month Certificate Course in Early Language and Literacy for teachers, teacher educators and academic support staff associated with the teaching and learning of Hindi language in grades 1 to 3. This is a blended distance-learning course aimed at developing knowledge and skills of teaching language and literacy in early grades. The components of the course are: self-learning modules with tasks and assignments, group conference phone calls, quizzes, discussion forum (thematic), face-to-face workshops, interaction with experts and action research project work. It has been implemented for 2 years now with about 310 participants. In Chhattisgarh this course has been recognized as a Diploma Course by one of the Open Universities. 2. Bhasha ki Duniya (The world of language) or Community of learning and practice This is a portal at an initial stage of development for sharing of resources and field-based good practices, with 250 teachers and teacher educators signed up. We have developed a plan for a much more ambitious knowledge hub with a range of online and field-based follow-up activities. 3. Short Term Courses on Early Language and Literacy (ELL): These are specialized courses of 1-month duration (about 20 hours of study and field work) for teachers and teacher educators. A course on reading comprehension with 100 participants was completed recently. The next course called “Changemakers” addresses issues of beliefs and attitudes among teachers and teacher educators is being implemented. 4. Professional Development Support to Teacher Education Institutes (TEIs) We are working with state level teacher education institutions (State Councils of Education Research and Training) in 2 states to reform the 2-year diploma curriculum for pre-service education to include a strong component for early literacy and multilingual education. 5. Multilingual Education (MLE) Certificate Course LLF has developed a 4-month MLE course to support teachers in developing effective language teaching practices in early grades for children who face a disadvantage because their home language is different from the school language. 6. State projects for professional development and classroom change In the Haryana, LLF is working with the government agencies for a large-scale program of professional development and also for transforming teaching-learning of early literacy in 250 schools in one district. In Rajasthan, a program is being implemented for training teachers to improve learning of children in early grades in 30 remote primary schools in a tribal area. The program helps teachers promote use of children’s home language (Wagdi) and practice good second language acquisition strategies to learn oral language and literacy skills in the school language.
