Talk clearly, simply, and often about behaviors that matter. “Reading time is quiet time.”
“Take turns with favorite toys.” “Now is the time to listen and follow directions.” “Being helpful can make you and others feel happy.” Establish routines. Young children may not be able to tell time, but they do become accustomed to the cadence of a regular schedule.
Build in time for happy movement throughout the day. Acknowledge that young children have limited attention spans by alternating learning activities that require quiet, focused attention with opportunities for independent play and learning activities that include movement.
Call attention to attention. We present learning activities in ways that elicit engagement—reading with emotion and enthusiasm, developing playful, hands-on lesson activities, and providing individual attention and support to get and keep children involved.
Make a game out of it. A wide variety of games and activities give children opportunities to take charge of their bodies, voices, and minds—and they think they’re just having fun.
Encourage prosocial behaviors. We encourage young children to adopt prosocial behaviors by setting clear expectations frequently for sharing and helping others, by modeling those actions themselves, and by giving each child individual, positive attention.
1.Thinking outside the box: encouraging understanding beyond the syllabus
We entrench our curriculum firmly within a wider, topical context helping students to look at the same matter in a radically new and different light.
2. Bringing it closer: giving academic subjects a real-world context
We find fresh ways of introducing a learning objective by providing a larger scenario. It is remarkably helpful in reigniting interest even in a difficult topic.
3. Birds of a feather: supporting collaboration and group learning
Our classrooms open many doors for group activity: seminars; classroom debates or discussions; practical-based work; and joint projects.
4. Making it work: including resources not commonly utilized
Our classrooms have several teaching resources which are used in ways that aren’t limiting but make a child use them imaginatively according to his own interest.
The hands-on approach: the upside of a strong practical foundation
The backbone of our school is practical learning with a strong kinesthetic component, and it’s what sets strong education apart from any other approach.

Delhi Public World School has a vast repository of digital instruction materials exactly mapped to meet with the specific objectives laid out by different learning standards and curricula by CBSE. It consists of thousands of highly animated, lesson specific, 3D and 2D multimedia modules built with an instructor-led design that allows the teacher to effectively explain the lesson in a typical classroom of diverse set of learners. Every module has a set of ‘Multiple Choice Questions’ designed to assess learning achieved at different cognitive levels. We also use an innovative assessment methodology at the end of each module.
