Teaching Philosophy

My observation of monologic classroom performances and practices over the past three decades has led me to arrive at a rather bleak picture of the prevalent pedagogy. The monologic, unidirectional and unilateral pedagogy has bred paradigms of dependence and hierarchy. It has assumed the parasitic role of the learner who is looked upon as an empty vessel to be filled and as a zero balance bank account into which the authoritarian, omnipotent and omniscient (?) teacher deposits funds of knowledge, which s/he accepts unquestioningly. This type of pedagogy has failed to nurture the learner’s resourcefulness, imaginativeness and innovativeness, and is detrimental to an all-round development of his / her personality. This is the general pedagogic context. Now let me say a few words about the state of English language education.

My observation of teaching English as a second/foreign language in India has driven me to draw certain conclusions many teachers, textbook writers and other players in the field of English language education may find rather unpalatable. What are these conclusions? Well, here they are! Many teachers are tormentors. Their teaching method is monotonous and monologic; they fail to inject liveliness in their lessons. Ideally speaking, they should be “mentors”, not “tor-mentors”. The taught are the tormented. Such teachers have two very convenient tools in their hands to torture the students: the text and the test. The materials in the textbooks are drab, uninteresting, and irrelevant to everyday life. Tests are designed as if their purpose is to expose the ignorance of the students, rather than to reveal what they know. In short, the situation is not much different from what it was half a century ago.

Here it would be in fitness of things to briefly talk about a revealing competition conducted in the late 1960s. The Observer announced a competition for school children in England. The topic given was “The school I’d like”. School children across England produced brilliant essays, collages and drawings. The message of this telling output was loud and clear: Educators, please educate our teachers! Let our lessons be less like lessons and more like conversations. Let the atmosphere in our classrooms be homely and relaxed. Let learning be fun!”

However, there is a ray of hope at the end of the tunnel. There are quite a few innovative teachers who have tried new ways of teaching. Such teachers have inspired the speaker and his colleagues to explore newer avenues and think of fresh approaches, methodologies and strategies which nourish dialogic pedagogy. Dialogic pedagogy, which is by its very nature interactive and participatory, results into paradigms of equality and interdependence, and encourages a spirit of involvement, participation and critical questioning. Moreover, it accommodates a deconstructionist plurality of perspectives and multiplicity of interpretation and lateral thinking. Further, it is tolerant of deviations from the clichéd patterns of thought and, above all, learner autonomy. Moreover, it injects liveliness in the language classroom and provides relief from the monotony of the textbook.

Project Undertaken

As the National Coordinator of the English Language Teaching Support Scheme, in 2006 I initiated a national project called ‘A National Survey of the Status of the Teaching of English at the Primary School Level’. The Director of Languages, Ministry of Human Resource Development allocated a budget for this very The team consisting of the National Coordinator (Professor Z. N. Patil), the Directors of the Lucknow and Shillong campuses of the Central Institute of English and Foreign Languages (Professor R. N. Bakshi and Professor K. C. Baral respectively), the Directors of the Regional Institutes of English at Chandigarh and Bangalore (Professor Sharda Kaushik and Professor Gayatri Devi Datta respectively), and the Principal of H. M. Patel Institute of Education, Training and Research (Dr. Rajendra Singh Jadeja) prepared questionnaires for teachers, learners, administrators, and parents. These questionnaires were then translated into Gujarati, Telugu, Hindi, Assamese, Panjabi, Kannada, and Marathi. The process of translating the questionnaires into other Indian languages had also begun. Unfortunately, this project was abandoned in the middle because the new administration of the Central Institute of English and Foreign Languages (the present English and Foreign Languages University) had other priorities. The project can be revived any time.
