Ms. Meenakshi Nagaraj – English HoD & teacher Class 9,10

Ms. Meenakshi Nagaraj has completed an Action Research Project in Class IX. Her project involved designing an effective and time efficient strategy to teach Prose, Poetry and Shakespeare using Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic activities. She was inspired to explore alternate teaching methodologies which encourage active class room involvement by partial and passive participants in the class. Her research involved studying the VAK approach and developing effective teaching strategies based on student feedback. It brought out the effectiveness of VAK styles and student involvement in the planning process, highlighting learner centric teaching-learning.

As Head of the English department, her work also helped orient English teachers in the school. Her presentations on her Action Research, made to the school management and 3 group schools, were received with evident interest and it was decided to extend VAK to all language departments. She intends to formulate a plan to share her learning on VAK and make it synonymous with class room teaching.
