Curriculum and Pedagogy


The curriculum and pedagogy envisaged at G D Goenka High School is based on the following:

Theme Based Learning

The theme based approach is a way of teaching and learning, whereby many areas of curriculum are connected together and integrated with a theme. The theme facilitates in addressing the issues related to the area under study in a holistic manner.

Child Centred Approach

Placing the child at the notional centre of the learning process in which they are active participants. This also involves giving children choices of learning activities with the teacher as the facilitator of learning. The identified concepts, skills, issues, and concerns are age appropriate so that the understanding of the child develops gradually from self to immediate surrounding and further to the wider environment.

Sequential Arrangement of Learning Experiences/Spiralling

The learning methodology is sequenced in such a manner that as the children progress through classes they revisit certain topics or themes several times where the depth and complexity of the concept will increase with each revisit. Objectives are sequenced in terms of increasing complexity and in terms of their relative importance. Here mastery of one objective requires prior mastery of another and are sequenced from cause to effect. Familiar topics are considered before unfamiliar ones.

Project Based Learning

PBL allows a student to learn about a subject through the experience of solving an open ended problem which leads to the development of other skills and attributes. This includes knowledge acquisition, enhanced group collaboration and communication. According to this approach, the students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge.

Emphasis on Fluency in Spoken English

Exposure to Modern and Elizabethan literature with focus on skills of articulation. Promoting the interest of learning English language through the teaching of literature is considered to improve the proficiency of the students in the target language too. Learning literature is important and integral in the holistic development of the language of the students.

Wide Range of Learning Experiences

Identifying different learning styles of children, the curriculum suggests a range of transactional processes varying from classroom discussions, case studies, field visits, hands-on experiences, experimentation, model making, poster making and slogan writing etc. This gives children a joyful experience which enables them to understand how learning is relevant in their lives.

An Integrated Approach

The curriculum encourages the integrated approach in learning, enabling the students to comprehend learning experiences as a unified whole to help them see meaningful linkages within and across various subject areas. It also focuses on making connections for students, allowing them to engage in relevant and meaningful activities that can be connected to real life.
