TS Schools English Remedial Teaching material for 3Rs Competencies Improvement. SCERT has decided to adapt the ‘Bridging The Gap Activity’ across the State to achieve minimum competencies among the children before using their textbooks for all classes. Majority of the teachers expressed their inability to transact the lessons of low proficiency of English among the children. It is almost like an introductory course in the new pedagogy of learning English. Most of the teachers felt that the need of experiential mode of training and special strategies for low proficient learners

This Bridging The GapActivity has been tried out successfully in 42 Government Primary Schools of Narketpally Mandal, Naalgonda District in spite of facing the challenging situations like:
1.First generation learners
2.Single teacher handling more classes
3. Lack of proper ambience at school
4. Inadequate language apparatus
5.Traditional belief system of teaching and learning English

Objectives of the ‘Bridging The Gap’
1. Creating English environment by overcoming inhibitions among children.
2. To encourage the children to express their opinions freely in their own English.
3. To enable them to achieve minimum Academic Standards as the children develop conversations, descriptions, story/ narrative orally and in written form.
4. To develop classroom interaction based on pictures without using textbook.
5. The positive sign of using English freely by the children in the classroom gives encouragement to the teachers to try out this new pedagogy effectively.

Strategies for Bridging The Gap
1. Select three (3) different pictures having more scope, interaction for generating description, conversation and narrative/ story both oral and written (picture of different subjects of the same class and other pictures may be considered).
2. Use first picture for whole class activity.
3. Use second picture for group activity.
4. Use third picture for individual activity.

Expected outcomes:
By end of these activities, all children including LPL could produce the basic discourses on their own i.e. description, conversation and narrative or story by using the familiar pictures. During the process of discourse construction, children get inputs in whole class activity. Children respond to teacher questions either in English or mother tongue. By using the children responses, the teacher construct the basic discourses in whole class activity. This process will strengthen during group construction. Further, children could write their own version during the individual writing. Later, the children are exposed to same pictures for whole class, group and individual activity. This process helps them to get ideas related to words, phrases and sentences. Editing will also helps the children in refining their writings.
