Mapping Indian Monsoon
To assess understanding and enhance learning, Differentiated Instruction strategy of ‘Choice Boards’ was used in class XI on the subject of Indian Monsoons. Students formed groups and each group chose a particular option to present their understanding of the topic to the class, from among four options. These were making a PowerPoint presentation capturing important aspects of the phenomena, an interactive board depicting the process of onset of the monsoons, a mapping of the geographical distribution of the monsoon impact and finally factsheets on the monsoons. Learning using DI helped them gain immense clarity on the concept, improve critical thinking, research and presentation skills.
