Course of Instruction

The Two-Year B.Ed. Programme is aimed at bringing total change in student teachers — their attitude towards teaching profession, children, school, community and society as a whole, their personality, behavior, communication skills, innovation and other life skills. Hence, it is proposed to implement Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) in continuous evaluation system of Two-Year B.Ed. Programme.

 

There are 17 courses mentioned earlier, out of which 5 courses are with 4 credits and the remaining 12 courses with 2 credits. The courses with 4 credits carry 100 marks each, out of which 20 marks for internal assessment and 80 marks are earmarked for semester-end examinations conducted by the university and the courses with 2 credits carry 50 marks each, 10 marks for internal assessment and 40 marks for semester-end examinations. Thus the total credits for theory examinations in all the four semesters put together is 44 and 1100 marks.

 

Under the practicum — activities, group and individual projects, reports and records, etc. carry 17 credits (1 credit in each course). The total marks for about 80-85 activities relating to 17 courses offered in B.Ed. programme carry 425 marks —in Semester-I 100 marks, in Semester-II 125 marks, in Semester-III 100 marks and in Semester-IV 100 marks. Thus, the practical component in Semester-I carries 4 credits and 100 marks.

 

During Semester-II each student teacher has to practice 5 Micro Lessons (for 25 marks) in each methodology subject in the college, which will be assessed by the respective methodology teacher educator the weightage is (1+1) 2 credit covers 50 marks for two pedagogy subjects. In Semester-11, the student teachers will be provided school experience for four weeks, in which they have to observe 5 lessons given by the regular school teachers under each pedagogy subject and prepare two observation records which carry (1+1) 2 credits (50 marks). Further, they have to prepare a school record which carries 1 credit (25 marks). Thus, the total practical component in Semester-II carries 10 credits and 250 marks.

 

During Semester-III, the student teachers will be attached to schools for a period of 8 weeks. During this period they have to do teaching practice by completing 20 lessons in each methodology for 6 and 7th Classes. These lessons are observed by the (guide)

teachers and one of the faculty members of the college of education. The teaching practice record is to be submitted by the student to the college with the signatures of the guide teacher at the end of each lesson. The performance assessment of the student teacher will be done for 100 marks by the teacher educator. Apart from teaching practice, the student teachers have to observe 5 lessons in each methodology given by their peer student teachers and prepare two observation records, which will carry (1+1) 2 credits and 50 marks. Thus, the total practical component in Semester-Ill with 14 credits covers 350 marks.

 

In Semester-IV, the student teachers are attached to schools for another period of 8 weeks. During this period, the student teachers have to undertake teaching practice by giving 20 lessons in each methodology for 8th, 9th and 10th (if possible) Classes. These

lessons are observed by the guide teachers and one of the faculty members of the college if education. The teaching practice record is to be submitted by the student to the college with the signatures of the guide teacher at the end of each lesson. The performance assessment of the student teacher will be done for 100 marks by the teacher educator. Further, the student teachers have to give two final lessons for the purpose of Practical Examination, one in each methodology in the school other than where they had school internship. These lessons will be assessed by two examiners — one Internal and one External Examiner appointed by the University. Thus, the total practical component in Semester-IV with 16 credits carries 400 marks.

On the whole, the practical component in the Two-Year B.Ed. Programme carries 44 credits and 1100 marks. The marks awarded under internal assessment and practical component in every semester are subject to moderation. The University shall take necessary steps to constitute the Moderation Board/s formulating appropriate guidelines to carry on moderation.
