We love to ask why and so do our students. Everything we teach has to have a specific purpose and once its real-life relevance is discussed, students tend to absorb it much faster. This also forces us as educators to choose topics that are student-centric and keep the discussion around why we do what we do.
Besides relevance, our students also have ample opportunities to practice rigour for all the things they have learnt. Our homework and weekly assignments are clearly discussed with students of all age groups thereby keeping the onus of the same on students rather than parents. Also, rigour comes in many forms in GGIS right from Math games on Mindspark to 3 letter hopscotch to interviews of neighbours.
