About the Book

Curriculum and Methods of Teaching has teachers and teacher educators as its main target groups, and all of them are likely to find it a dependable and a faithful armpit companion.
The fundamental concepts covered in Section I lay the foundation, for the theory and practice of teaching and learning, Section II, attempts to supplement the conventional methods of teaching with unconventional strategies and Section III, focuses on approaches for consolidation and internalisation of learning in different subjects. These are aimed at the realisation of the targets of pupil growth in the Cognitive, Affective and Psycho-motor sectors of personality.
As a bold attempt at translating theories into practice and imparting concrete shape to nebulous abstractions, the book paves the way for gratifying success of all its clients.
