Why is this subject important for B.Ed. Study?
Since teachers have to deal with children, teachers need to understand children. There are various stages of growth and development of a child and each stage has unique characteristics. Growth and Development are two different things but related.
We live in a pluralistic society today and it has an impact on the development of a child. So we need to study what are the effects on a child living in today’s pluralistic society.
A classroom is filled with children coming from different families of different social and cultural backgrounds. We need to study how it affects the child when he or she comes in a multicultural classroom.
We need to study how a child develops in theory as it can help us become better teachers when we deal with children who show less development than others.
Why a child behaves in a certain way? Why is he/she not studying? All these questions which comes to a mind of an adult when he meets a child can be answered better if we know some theory behind how it all happens in a child.
Family structures are changing where families are getting more and more smaller and nuclear. This has an impact on the upbringing of a child. A child learns from his parents and from the people outside home. Also parenting has a lot to do with the upbringing of a child.
In this subject, we also study about our own self where we reflect and retrospect on our life. How we deal with emotions and feelings and how it can be useful in our career as a teacher.
Each person thinks differently and sees the world differently. We also will reflect on the way we relate to the world with our emotions.
The study of the subject Childhood and Growing Up makes future teachers aware about the various aspects a child in the classroom deals with.
Gender, School and Society
Gender, School and Society is an important subject in the B.Ed. course taught in various universities of India.
Gender, School and Society Notes
You can find the Gender, School and Society Notes by clicking on the links below.
Why is this subject important for study?
As future teachers who will be working in co-educational schools, it is necessary that you get familiarized with gender roles in society of which schools are a part.
Student teachers must develop familiarity with the concepts of sex, gender and transgender.
You must also understand the various gender stereotypes in the society. As there are various prejudices with women, you can explain to your class that boys and girls must be treated with equity and equality.
You must also learn about the role of the teachers, schools, peers, textbooks, curriculum in the inclusion and reinforcement of gender parity.
The study of Gender, School and Society makes it possible for a student teacher to sensitize towards the issue of gender equality. Therefore, its study is important.
Knowledge and Curriculum
Knowledge and Curriculum is another significant subject in the B.Ed. course which is also taught in various universities of India.
Knowledge and Curriculum Notes
You can find the Knowledge and Curriculum Notes by clicking on the links below.
Why is this subject important for study?
Meaning of ‘education’ is ‘an enlightening experience. ‘Knowledge’ means ‘awareness or familiarity gained by experience of a fact or situation’. ‘Curriculum’ means ‘the subjects comprising a course of study in a school or college’.
The reason why this subject Knowledge and Curriculum is taught is because this subject helps the future teachers to learn that the new education system is ‘child centric’. Another reason is that future teachers must develop an understanding social and cultural influence on education.
