Timetable, Formative and Summative Assessment process of English Nali-Kali

Introduction

A typical Nali Kali classroom as you know has students of 3 different grades at multiple learning levels. In such a scenario the teacher is expected to be aware of the amount of time to be spent on each child.

Out of the 80 minutes that are available for ENK per day, 40 minutes are utilized for oral (L&S) activities, and 40 minutes for Reading and Writing. Some amount of time is spent on saying good morning, welcoming children, and change over time between activities. In the beginning, more time is spent on greeting and welcoming and reduced as children become more familiar with the exercise.

Listening and Speaking Time-Table

Oral activities are conducted using the whole class approach. As all these activities in a milestone are theme-based, the teacher does not lose time. She/he just follows the tempo and moves seamlessly from one activity to the other.

L&S Time-table

Oral activities as discussed multiple times in the earlier sections are conducted using the whole class approach. As all these activities in a milestone are theme-based, the teacher does not lose time. She/he just follows the tempo and moves seamlessly from one activity to the other. From the timetable displayed on the slide, you can see that 200 minutes are allotted for oral activities every week covering all 6 segments. Every month follows a particular theme.

Reading and Writing Time-Table

In the 40-minute Reading and Writing, once the children are settled in their thattes, the teacher attends to children in thatte -3 and gives them instructions. Then, she/he moves to thatte 2 to give instructions and encourage peer learning. Once she sets thatte 2 and 3 in order, she/he settles down in thatte 1 with children who need her undivided attention.  This way all children in the class are engaged. As in any other classroom, it is very important for the teacher to be completely clued into the learning needs and be aware of the learning levels of her students.

Effective utilization of teaching-learning time

Percentage calculation for FA and SA

Let us now see how the percentage scored by a student is calculated.

If, for instance, a child has cleared 6 steps out of 7 in L & S and 32 steps in R & W, then the percentage of marks scored by the student in  FA1 is calculated as 𝑆𝑇𝐸𝑃𝑆 𝐴𝐢𝐻𝐼𝐸𝑉𝐸𝐷 π΅π‘Œ 𝑇𝐻𝐸 𝐢𝐻𝐼𝐿𝐷 divided by 𝑆𝑇𝐸𝑃𝑆 𝑇𝑂 𝐡𝐸 𝐴𝐢𝐻𝐼𝐸𝑉𝐸𝐷 π΅π‘Œ 𝑇𝐻𝐸 𝐢𝐻𝐼𝐿𝐷 into 100.  That gives 88 percent which corresponds to an A grade.
