Learning to earn a living is only half the job. The other half is to make life worthwhile and meaningful.~ Sathya Sa Baba ~

Teaching Methodologies

The SSEHV Programme identifies three approaches to the teaching of these human values. These are:
i. The Indirect Approach;
ii. The Indirect Co-Curricular Approach; and
iii. The Direct Approach

The Indirect Approach is based on the premise that every school subject has inherent values and that if this is taken into consideration when lessons are being planned, it is possible to inculcate values during the course of one’s normal teaching. The Indirect Co-Curricular Approach emphasises the instilling of values in the extra-curricular activities in which children participate. Such activities are outings, field-trips, sports, drama, dance, etc.

The Direct Approach seeks to instil values in a direct systematic way. It employs five teaching techniques which have been used for generations by great teachers but some of which we may have forgotten to make use of in recent times. The techniques are:

Silent Thinking

Inspirational Quotations

Group Singing

Story Telling

Group Activities
