To enhance the critical and creative thinking among the students, CBSE has launched 'Creative and Critical Thinking (CCT) Weekly Practice Programme' in all CBSE schools. A circular regarding the same was received by the schools on Monday.
Joseph Emmanuel, director of academics, said “CBSE CCT practice aimed at empowering teachers to ask questions connected to a real-life situation and build curiosity among students, facilitate discussions to build collaboration and problem-solving skills and to engage parents and community at large in the students' learning process. ”
Through the program, CBSE will share five questions every week for the teachers. The questions will not be related to the syllabus but they will be connected to the overall learning of the students.
"Teachers can use these questions at the beginning of a class to make students curious about the topic that will be taught in the class or has already been taught. Students can be asked to attempt these questions for homework in consultation with their friends and family. Answers can be discussed the next day or at the end of the week as per the convenience of teachers in a way that it promotes discussion," said Joseph.
CBSE has shared a copy of QR coded poster along with the circular with the schools. Schools will take the print out of these questions and will put up in classes -- VII to X. New questions will be made available on Monday and solutions on Thursday via the same QR code.
