Theme and process-based school science instruction results into effective revision and significantly positive student reactions: Study
"After teaching a few units, the integration of the diverse concepts and their thematic revisit through process-based learning of science enhances the competence of teachers as practitioners by donning the role of learner-teachers and results into significantly positive reactions of middle school students," stated the Jaipur based researcher, Dr Lalit Kishore, whose paper "Making Science Learning Process-Based: Low Cost Science Experiences Related to Spin, Swirl and Sway" has been accepted for a conference to be held in Bhopal of MP next month.

The researcher has invited for presenting the paper at the 'International Conference on Emerging Trends & Innovations in School Sciences' which going to be held at the Regional Institute of Education (NCERT), Bhopal from February 6 to 8. The aim of the conference is platform to the stakeholders of secondary education across the globe to share their researches, experiences and innovative practices.

According to the abstract of the paper, self-development of science teacher through intervention cum action research has been advocated by many educators by reorganizing and linking concepts to revisit and revise them by treating learning a non-linear and exciting process, but there are very few takers. 

Under the research study, an attempt was made to organize experimental science sessions for 10 days at rate of one session of one hour per day followed by one day review. An action plan for action research was developed with pre-active phase (one weeks, 2 hours a day for identifying and proposing 12 activities) and interactive phase (two-week transaction of activities and one day review through responses and reactions of students) along with self-reflection and two week post-active phase of writing the report a documents action research for recognition and dissemination.

The motivation for the research study came after reading the topic 'Turn, Twist and Topple' in the book titled 'Physics is Fun' Another topic titled 'Spin' Swirl and Sway'. The transaction of the intervention on 20 students of middle school level resulted in significantly positive reactions and active revision of the topics, concludes the study.
