The West Bengal School Education Department has prepared a 100-day bridging course to make students feel confident in their newly promoted classes. The course, named “Setu Pathakram,” which will be presented in the new academic session starting in January, will be made available to students of all classes, Avik Majumder told PTI, chairman of the expert committee on programs and manuals.
It is introduced to help students better understand the subjects in order to fill in any gaps that may have arisen during online lessons. Classes have been held in virtual mode since schools have been closed since March of last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Educational institutions in West Bengal reopened for students in grades 9 to 12 in mid-November of this year. Teacher training for this purpose at public or government-subsidized educational institutions has already started, Majumder said. “Let’s say, for example, that a student in class 4 in a pre-pandemic period should attend class 6 if the junior section reopens from January. The course will act in the same way as a bridge that connects two different points, ”said Majumder.
He said the bridging course curriculum was designed for each class by experts.
“If offline lessons are delayed due to any new development in the coronavirus situation, we will keep it ready until the situation returns to normal,” the famous educator said.
Students in grades 6, 8 and 11 will receive lessons on the details of the coronavirus, the dos and don’ts of avoiding contracting the infection and the need to follow appropriate behavior in Covid, Majumder said. “The course material will be personalized according to the respective class and the receptive capacity of the students,” he said.
