Integrated learning means combining what one learns in the classroom, whether it’s theory or technique, with the solution of real-world problems for real-world people. In Baba School Program (BSP), students pursue integrated learning experiences through a variety of means, including coursework with integrated learning components, courses are designed to provide integrated learning projects for teams of students and projects for individual students, too. In addition to these programs, students get ample opportunity on hand-on activities, which helps the students to be clear with the concept to be taught.
Efficient is the term that best describes the Baba School Program (BSP) approach to teaching. This efficiency is brought forth by teaching a body of knowledge and skills with minimal input in the shortest time possible. It includes mixed ability classes and whole class teaching with active student participation throughout the education process.
Teaching techniques include focus in reading and drilling in basic mathematics, among others. These techniques build a strong foundation for accelerated learning, creative judgment, critical thinking, individual exploration, and ownership of one’s education in upper grades.
Unlike one-to-one or individualized teaching, where each child is taught for a limited amount of time, the Baba School Program (BSP) of teaching is an interactive approach that involves the whole class in the learning process. When in class, students learn actively. They do not simply listen to lengthy explanations or take dictated notes. Baba School Program (BSP) teachers list the concepts to be taught and introduce them one “point” at a time applying the cycle of Teaching, Class Practice, Individual Practice, and Check. Group work is then used to complement the Baba School Program (BSP) whereby students work in small groups to check their work and provide additional support to their classmates. This time also gives the teacher the opportunity to visually survey the learning in the room and assess the need for immediate re-teaching, with an prospect to balance both summative and formative classroom assessment practices and information gathering about student learning.
Through this efficient teaching method, teachers ensure student mastery of the Baba School Program (BSP) curriculum and of the essential skills and knowledge required for advancement.
