The Mughal Empire

Class VII students learned about the history of Mughal Empire by using a combination of Collaborative Learning Strategies.

With the aim of designing a newspaper depicting the life and times of any one of the Mughal rulers, students were divided into groups and assigned the task of research and exploration. Within their groups, students used simulation to get insight into the political, cultural and social events of a bygone era. Thereafter, guided learning strategy was used wherein students referred to the samples of newspapers to understand the layout and design. After the editorial guidelines were clearly laid out, each student was tasked to write an article for the newspaper and later the editor in the group put together the articles as per the planned layout.
