I. Study Projects
Language learning involves learners getting engaged with the language. We know that exposure to language through visual/print and oral medium is essential. This is what the textbook, other print and audio materials and teacher’s language attempt to do. However this exposure alone is not sufficient. Students need to be given opportunities to work with language. They should read, think about the ideas of the text, understand the meaning of the words, notice the form of the structures etc., while being exposed to the language and working with language on their own. This engagement with language makes them internalize meaning of words and structures.
In addition to textbook activities, project work could be used as an effective strategy to promote collaborative ways of language learning where learners work together in groups to do an activity or a task for some period. When learners work together on a particular topic/ idea they collect information and ideas, observer language being used, use language in real life situations exchange views and debate on ideas, write the ideas into a report, edit their working and produce the report in suitable form.
It is with all these objectives and more, the Department of English has been planning a series of projects every year and it is another best practice with us. We were continuously selected at state level Jignasa competition sponsored by Commissioner of Collegiate Education.
A student research project titled “Error Analysis” was presented at the state level Jignasa competitions in 2018-19 under the supervision of Mrs. Zaheda Sultana.
In 2019-20 Mrs. R. Lakshmi supervised student research project for Jignasa competitions titled “Reading Skills and some Effective Strategies”.
Mrs. P. Sujatha has supervised 2021-22 student study project for Jignasa competition titled “COVID 19: Challenges of online English language learning at UG level.
