[Basic theme: A system of learning ahead with reviewing back will be developed for students to recall and preserve conceptual understanding of subjects]

[1] PREAMBLE:

(A) Conceptual learning is a form of critical thinking in which individuals acquire the ability to categorize and organize data by creating logic based structures. Acquiring basic concepts help students to perform mental operations which constitute the goals of cognitive development.

(B) In general, conceptual learning is largely dependent on conceptual teaching. All students learn concepts at different rates and teachers should ensure that their students have a full grasp of the subject matter.

(C) Basic concepts are building blocks to education. They ultimately assist students to make new connections, construct understanding and generate their new ideas.

(D) What students learn is eventually getting forgotten at some point or it gets buried so deep that it doesn't come up easily in the right context.

(E) It is the 'mug it up, suck it up' formula that works for scoring marks. Students don’t focus to learn the basic concepts. 35% of engineer graduates can't solve simple mathematical problems. They have a weak understanding of concepts as elementary as decimals, powers, operations, ratio, fractions, and the ability to apply these concepts to real world problems. (Study released by Aspiring minds)

(F) Regular review of knowledge is necessary in student life. Obviously, maintaining all the knowledge through review is unnecessary and time consuming. However, going back and selecting out the specific concepts and skills is essential for students to construct understanding and generate their new ideas.

(G) There is a need to develop a system for learning ahead with reviewing back to recall and preserve the knowledge.

[2] REVIEW BACK AND LEARN AHEAD MODEL OF EDUCATION:

(A) Accordingly, a special class/lecture of conceptual learning, for all students of the same standard will be conducted, every day, in each school, after/within school hours (preferably, last lecture of school hours). These lectures will cover basic conceptual topics from every subject of all previous standards. [For example: In the conceptual learning lectures of 9th standard, basic concepts of every subject of all previous standards (1st standard to 8th standard) will be covered]

(B) If total/on roll students are less in number, then school management may conduct common conceptual lecture for all divisions of the same standard.

(C) Each day, a new topic will be taken for teaching. Generally, a topic of common concern will be taken. Teachers of the respective subjects will teach these topics.

(D) Students will be regularly informed the weekly schedule of the lectures through prior notification.

(E) There will be no compulsion to attend all the conceptual learning classes/lectures. One will be able to attend the lectures with topics in which he/she is weak. [For example: If a student has good understanding of arithmetic progression, then he will be able to skip the lecture of this topic]

(F) One will be able to suggest (his/her weak) topic/s for conceptual lecture through subject wise suggestion drop boxes placed in the school. These suggestions will be reviewed by the school management committee and topics of the lectures of the next week will be decided.

(G) Teaching will be more practical in conceptual learning classes/lectures for better understanding of the concepts. Teachers will be trained regarding the same.

(H) Students will be provided with a textbook covering all basic conceptual topics from every subject of all previous standards.

(I) Exam paper of subject of conceptual learning will be conducted along with the examination of regular subjects. Syllabus will include all the basic conceptual topics from every subject of all the previous standards.

(J) This model of education will be applicable for upper primary/middle, secondary and higher secondary (6th standard to 12th standard) school education.

[3] BENEFITS:

(A) The main advantage of review is that students will get complete coverage of knowledge.

(B) Performance of academically weak students will be improved and their confidence will be strengthened.

(C) Students will be able to do self assessment of their knowledge and improve learning level.

(D) Education will be provided with equity and quality.

I request you to sign my petition and ask the ministry of human resource development to implement review back and learn ahead model of education to stop parroting and promote learning.
