Distance Education Programme (DEP-SSA) is a national component created by the
MHRD, o!t" o# $ndia #or distance education acti!ities under SSA, DEP caters to the
training needs o# elementary school teachers and other SSA #unctionaries"
Sar!a Shi%sha Abhiyan (SSA) is a nation &ide campaign to pro!ide eight years o#
elementary education to all children in the age group o# '-() years" *he ob+ecti!e o#
SSA mainly #ocus on increasing access, enrolment and retention o# all children and as
&ell as impro!ing the ,uality o# education" $nspite o# many e##orts o# go!ernment,
both at -entral and State le!el (mid-day meal, #ree boo%s, uni#orm and bicycles, etc")
more the ./ per cent children lea!e school be#ore completing elementary stage"
0eside many, one o# the ma+or in#luencing #actor is that children do not #ind school
interesting and enriching"
*hus, ,uality education is a crucial issue in elementary education &hich re!ol!e
around the a!ailability and ,uality o# in#rastructure, support ser!ices and instructional
time in the school teacher characteristics and teacher moti!ation, pre-ser!ice and in-
ser!ice education o# teachers curriculum and teaching 1 learning materials, classroom
processes, pupil e!aluation, monitoring and super!ision, etc" Moreo!er, the ,uality o#
teaching-learning process depends upon pro#essional competence o# a teacher" *he
#ast changing %no&ledge in all spheres o# li#e re,uires continuous updating o#
%no&ledge among teachers" 2o& the attainment o# %no&ledge does not restrict only
up to #our &alls o# classrooms" Students, due to e3pansion o# mass electronic media,
e!en in rural and remote areas4 come across a !ariety o# %no&ledge and are not
interested in te3t boo%s based %no&ledge only" *here#ore, elementary teachers ha!e
to enrich their %no&ledge continuously so that students can be pro!ided ,uality
education rele!ant to local as &ell as global needs and thus be retained in schools"
-lassroom processes includes maintenance o# discipline, organi5ing learning,
character building, con#lict resolution, counseling etc" $mpro!ing classroom practices
and school management, no doubt #orm the core o# the success o# educational
programmes" *he programme en!isages create local speci#ic #acilitating conditions to
teacher competences through #re,uent in-ser!ice training programmes and impro!ing

-lassroom Processes at Elementary Stage and 7uality Education under SSA during
March 8/-8(, 8//' at S-ER*, Pune, Maharashtra" *he underlying ob+ecti!es o# this
seminar &ere to share the e3periences o# states regarding e##orts9inno!ations in
impro!ing classroom processes at elementary stage, ma+or issues related to e##ecti!e
classroom processes and strategies to impro!e the teaching-learning processes" *he

#unctions in the society" Speech might not be the only dimension o# response in the

se!eral #actors that a##ect second language learning"
$magine a class o# #i#ty students meeting a#ter a &ee%end or a short !acation" As the

up and tell about something they en+oyed &hile many o# them pre#er to be silent"
Ho&e!er, silence doesnFt e!er mean that thereFs no response to the stimulus or that
the ,uestion hasnFt been understood" *he role o# a##ecti!e #actors and the reaction
that precedes !erbal response o#ten goes unrecogni5ed" *otal Physical Response is a
phenomenon in language teaching &hich in!ol!es a method built around the
coordination o# speech and action, attempting to process language learning through
physical (motor) acti!ity" >ames AsherFs *otal Physical Response is lin%ed to the
Qtrace theoryF o# memory in psychology (e"g" 6atona, (E)/), &hich holds that the
more intensi!ely a memory connection is traced, the stronger the memory association
&ill be and it is more li%ely that it &ill be recalled" Asher ad!ocates that success#ul
adult second language learning is a parallel process to the childFs #irst language
ac,uisition" $n #act, &hen the child begins to comprehend #irst language, he decodes it
in the #orm o# speech consisting primarily o# commands to &hich he responds
physically" $# the childFs second language learning is a recapitulation o# the process,
he should be able to learn or ac,uire the target language through game-li%e acti!ities
that +usti#y the emotional #actor or the role o# the a##ecti!e domain in the learning o#
the second language" A lot o# the childFs egocentric speech could be help#ul in
directing the primary le!el learner to&ards the production o# English as second
language" Ho&e!er, since the Physical Response strategy is less demanding in terms
o# speech9&ritten production, the response to the stimuli is &ell-accepted i# it is #ed
&ith a proper motor acti!ity" Ohile the process o# cogniti!e mapping is on in the
learnerFs (primary le!el) ac,uiring o# English, the materials used in the classroom
acti!ities not only ha!e the responsibility o# allo&ing the child to respond to the
stimuli through physical 9 motor acti!ities through comprehension o# the target
language, but also re,uire to pro!ide the learner &ith ample input to initiate thin%ing
and production in the target language"
At the beginnerFs le!el, this output is e3pected in terms o# *otal Physical Response
(*PR) and imitation at the &ord9 phrase le!el" $n the light o# the teaching-learning
material de!eloped #or beginners (the learners o# -lass $ T $$ #or the state o#
-hhattisgarh), this paper attempts:
(i) to +usti#y the role o# motor acti!ities in the scope o# a te3t used #or the beginners,
the place o# egocentric speech and the possibilities o# de!eloping a&areness or
alertness in the child to&ards the instructions or demonstrations at classroom le!el (ii)
to highlight suggesti!e measures and materials in support o# the duration o# latency in
the primary le!el learner o# English" (*he latent phase is that period in &hich the
learner might not be able to produce or respond to the stimuli immediately, but
care#ully uses the in#ormation he collects in the course o# his motor responses o!er
and a#ter a period o# time) and (iii) to elucidate the psychic simulations that #a!our
language ac,uisition pertaining to silent phases in learning that are #acile and
creati!e" Hence, there is a need to identi#y the stages o# rein#orcement that sustain
positi!e learning o# the target language"
U&)ersta&)i&g the Co&(ept of Total Ph*si(al Respo&se
AsherFs *otal Physical Response (*PR) theory ((E??) in course o# ad!ocating itsel#
as a M2atural methodF aims at:
'he #!o-*ro/ramme9 *his includes internali5ing a cogniti!e map o# the target
language through listening e3ercises" Physical mo!ement should accompany
listening" Speech and other producti!e s%ills &ould come later" *he speech
production mechanism &ill begin to #unction spontaneously &hen the basic
#oundations o# language ha!e been established through listening" $n a particular
se,uence o# the brain Tthe ner!ous system, the speci#ic mode o# listening
#ollo&ed by spea%ing is to synchroni5e language &ith the indi!idualFs body"
'he #ra! la+eral!0a+!o9 Asher sees *PR as directed to right brain learning"
Most second language teaching is related to le#t brain learning" Oith re#erence
to the &or% by >ean Piaget, it holds that the child as a language learner ac,uires
through motor mo!ement - a right hemisphere acti!ity" Right hemisphere
acti!ities must occur be#ore the le#t hemisphere can process language #or
production" *he process is initiated through right hemisphere motor acti!ities
&hile the le#t hemisphere &atches and learns" Ohen a su##icient amount o# right
hemisphere learning has ta%en place, the le#t hemisphere &ill be triggered to
produce language T to allo& more abstract language processes"
Ho&e!er, the abstractness o# language is a rather di##icult s&itcho!er #or the learners
o# English also at primary le!el because unli%e the #irst language, the e3posure to
listening o# English is rather less or poor" Hence, the t&o points mentioned abo!e
tend to support a silent phase in learning accumulated through e3perience (attegno)
because that gi!es meaning to the language" *he learner must get a #eel #or this aspect
o# learning though e!erything is not altogether clear" $t brings us bac% to 0en+amin
;ran%linFs &onder#ul gestures to the teacher M- $n!ol!e me and $ learn"N *he latent
duration is e3pected to dilute the %nots in the childFs inta%e and mani#est itsel# to an
independent, autonomous and responsible learner, e"g" the beginnerFs #irst language
boo% uses the picture o# a tap to label the letter Q"aF ;Se, "aF in his Hindi te3t and in
his English boo% the same picture is used #or the letter *: * #or *APF" $# in the
#ollo&ing pages o# his te3t, the same letter is used in a &ord li%e G*REEF, the child
being as%ed to recogni5e the letter Q*F #inds his o&n &ay o# responding to the
,uestion by turning the pages o# his boo% and pointing out the picture o# the tap,
though he might not spea% out at all" *he silent recognition as &ell as rein#orcement
is thence pre!alent in the latency period, &hich adults might need to recapitulate
*his interesting &ay o# learning in the child needs to be supported by proper e3ercises
or materials"
!e#uce# stress in earning: Physical sensiti!eness is en+oyable in its inter-relational
mode because it contains something that the child en+oys repeating and imitating his
elders #rom a state o# murmur to a state o# clear speech" *his could !ery much be
inter#aculty or inter-en!ironmental in nature e"g" &hen a child has been introduced to
the basic geometrical #igures, he might be encouraged to spell out his #riendly so#t
drin% #rom a pu55le li%e this:
Hal# a circle, #ull a circle, hal# a circle QAF
Hal# a circle, #ull a circle, right angle, QAF"
Ohen the teacher &rites the &ord Q-=-A-=<AF on the blac% board, as the child
murmurs the &ord and the lines to himsel#, it supports his personal system o#

Calue education has become a challenging concern in the modern conte3t" $ts scope
becomes all the more articulate &hen !ie&ed in terms o# the roles and role perception
o# a teacher" *he present e3position is de!oted to enumerating the !alues and
associated ,ualities o# beha!iour &ith an intent o# grooming the teacher"
Since the middle o# the last century, concern has been e3pressed by !arious sections
o# the society about the progressi!e erosion in the morality o# the ne& generation and
a general decline in character among a large section o# the people" Oith the passage
o# time the !oice o# concern has become louder despite the #acts that many attempts
ha!e been made simultaneously to chec% this deterioration in the moral de!elopment
o# the citi5ens" *his seems to be the general trend, in the de!eloped as &ell as
de!eloping &orlds" Re#erring to this global trend, Education -ommission ((E')-'')
obser!ed that the &ea%ening o# social and moral !alues in the younger generation is
creating many serious social and ethical con#licts in &estern societies and there is
already a desire among great &estern, thin%ers to balance the %no&ledge and s%ills
&hich science and technology bring &ith the !alues and insights associated &ith
ethics and religion at itFs best !ia a search #or the %no&ledge o# the sel#, the meaning
o# li#e, the relationship o# man to other human beings and to the ultimate reality"
*hus, the situation that is de!eloping is important to gi!e a proper !alue orientation to
our educational system" *here is a the need to pay attention to the inculcation o# right
!alues among the students at all stage o# education" $t is heartening to note that the
a&areness o# this responsibly has been gro&ing since independence" Ho&e!er it has
become necessary and urgent to adopt acti!e measures to gi!e a proper !alue
orientation to education"
6othari -ommission has rightly obser!ed the e3panding %no&ledge and the gro&ing
po&er that it places at the disposal o# modern society must, there#ore, be combined
&ith strengthening and deepening o# the sense o# social responsibility and %eener
appreciation o# moral and spiritual !alues"
$nculcation o# obser!able !alues in the people is #elt essential #or meeting the crisis o#
the character" $n the rapidly de!eloping situation it is e,ually important #or us to gi!e
proper !alues orientation to our education system"
Dr" 2"*" Ram+i in his boo% MCalue =riented School EducationN has mentioned that
the #ollo&ing !alues should #rom an integral part o# our entire school program:
i) -ourage ii) *ruth iii) @ni!ersal <o!e i!) Respect #or all religions !) Dignity o#
manual &or% !i) Social ser!ice !ii) Purity and !iii) Peace o# +oy"
*he 2ational Policy o# Education ((EA') also has clearly recommended
MRead+ustment in the curriculum in order to ma%e education a #orce#ul tool #or the
culti!ation o# social and moral !alues education being an attempt to e##ect all round
de!elopment o# the young #uture citi5en o# the society o##ers best opportunity #or
inculcation o# !alues in them and #or de!eloping them in to men o# characterN" As
also stressed by Ramamurthy -ommittee 1 (EE/, Education must pro!ide a climate
#or the nature o# !alues both as a personali5ed set o# !alues #orming oneFs character
and including necessarily social cultural and national !alues so as to ha!e to conte3t
and meaning #or actions and decisions and in order to enable the present to act &ith
con!iction and commitment" $t &as perhaps the deep concern #or de!elopment o#
!alues in the learners that made the committee to title its report as Q*o&ards an
Enlightened and Human SocietyF and argue that true education must humani5e the
7uality in human terms has also been emphasi5ed by 6ornhouser ((EE') &ho
stresses that %no&ledge inter&o!en &ith !alues creates &isdom &hich should be the
ultimate aim o# education and this aim should not be allo&ed to be carried a&ay by
the more !isible material &ell being goal o# education"
*he primary responsibility o# creating a conducti!e en!ironment rests on the shoulder
o# teacher, &ho is the %ingpin in any educational system as it is &ho directly comes
in contact &ith students and translates the curriculum in to action" Re#erring to the
signi#icance o# teachers in this endea!or the Mudaliar -ommission ((E.B)
emphasi5ed that school teachers can be in#used &ith a high sense about their destiny
only &hen they are made to reali5e that they are engaged in the ma%ing o# better
human beings and creating a better social order and not merely teaching a dull
prescribed syllabus" $t &ould not be &rong to say that a nation is made great by its
teacher" *his happens &hen besides beings masters in their o&n disciplines and
competent in communication s%ills, they should posses and display ,ualities o#
leadership and the accepted norms o# beha!iour" *hese !ie&s are also echoed in the
Delores -ommission ((EE') &hich asserted M $t is the teacher &hose role can help
immensely in the inculcation o# !alues and that teachers great strength lies in the
e3ample they set o# curiosity, open mindedness, &illingness to put their assumption to
test and to ac%no&ledge mista%es and most o# all they must transmit lo!e o# learning"
=ur HonFable President Dr" A"P">" Abdul 6alam addressing the nation on the
occasion o# *eacherFs day recalled some o# his most memorable encounters &ith his
teachers &hich later on pro!ed !ital turning points in the li#e" He paid rich tributes to
those teachers in primary school as &ell as in higher education that had
unmitigatingly and untiringly tried to sol!e students learning problems and had
al&ays encouraged their spirit o# in,uiry and in,uisiti!eness to remain ali!e" He says
that one o# the uni,ue characteristics #or creating enlightened human being is that the
teacher becomes not only role model #or the students in respect o# learning but also
#or shaping his li#e &ith great dreams and aims"
*here#ore, teacher is the most !ital and appropriate person in the entire #ormal
educational settings #or inculcating !alues in young learners"
