ACTIVITIES
“Through God we will do valiantly”  Psalms 60:12a

                   The college works exactly according to the schedule served by the Andhra University and the A.P. State Government. The activities of the College include curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

1.CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES:  Activities pertaining theory and practicals involve in curricular activities.

a.) THEORY:  Regular theory classes are conducted all through the semester. The syllabus is completed well in advance so that sufficient time can be available for revision.Weekly seminars are conducted in all the subjects and every student-teacher gets opportunity to participate in the seminar atleast 3 or 4 times.Guest lectures, which are practically useful to the student-teachers, are also arranged. These lectures are given by senior and eminent resource persons.

                   Two mid-term examinations are conducted exactly on the university semester examination pattern. For the second mid-term semester examination proper time intervals (4-5 days) are given between the papers so that the student-teachers can concentrate only on a particular subject during that each given interval.On seeing the performance of the student-teachers in these two examinations the principal and the staff provide proper counseling for the needy students and  encourage them.Finally, pre-final semester examinations are conducted before the last instruction day. The question papers for these pre-final examinations are set by the senior lecturers of other colleges. This is done with a view that the students should get exposed to the way of questioning different from that of their own lecturers.Again the principal and the teaching staff provide counseling for the needy student-teachers after the semester pre-final examinations.

Thus, the student-teachers are made confident to face end of their final semester examinations as they get exposed to various lectures, seminars, guest lectures and examinations. As per the Andhra University B.Ed. syllabus curriculum subjects are mentioned below semester wise:

*These marks will be awarded by the teacher educator (40), the guide teacher in the school (40)
and head of the institution of the school (20)

**20 activities in four courses will be assessed by the concerned teacher educator for 100 Marks

# These 50 marks will be given by the pedagogy teacher educator and the senior subject teacher in the school independently after observing the lesson given by the student teacher. However, the student teachers should give this final lesson in the school other than where they completed their internship.

After obtaining the marks from University Examinations, tabulation of marks should be commenced to get the total marks obtained in each course including internal assessment marks. The total marks thus obtained for each course will be converted into grade points as shown below.

In case of courses, which carry 50 marks, may be multiplied with 2 to fit into the grade point table shown above. Under the practical component also similar principal may be followed either by enhancing / reducing the marks to hundred for conversion of marks into grade points. For example, in some cases the total marks be 25, which is to be raised to 100 by multiplying with 4 and convert the marks into grade. Similarly if the total marks for a practical component is 50, which is to be raised to 100 by multiplying with 2 and convert the marks into grade. In case of 125 marks, it is reduced to 100 by multiplying with 4/5 and convert the marks into grade.

As the credits are already fixed by the expert committee for all the theory courses and all aspects under practicum as mentioned under Scheme and Structure of the Two Year B.Ed. Programme, it will be very easy now to prepare the SGPA memos for the student teachers illustrated below.

a)ART AND CRAFT RESOURCE CENTRE.
b)HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION RESOURCE CENTRE(INCLUDING YOGA EDUCATION)
c)PREPARATION OF TEACHING-LEARNING MATERIAL (TLM)

a)ART AND CRAFT RESOURCE CENTRE:   Some of the student-teachers are skilled in various work-experience activities and some other student-teachers pick-up various such skills through the work experience training in the college. A lecturer (preferably a female), who is well experienced in this aspect, is kept in-charge of the Work Experience training. The student-teachers are taught how to make, soft toys, soaps, detergents, bamboo baskets, some showy articles from useless household things etc. They are also given training in handiworks like embroidery, dress-making etc. They are provided with embroidery sewing machines and all the needed articles (kits) for that.
  
b)HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION:The student-teachers are taught to conduct assembly of the school. Every morning 6 student-teachers take the responsibility of conducting assembly in the college and thereby every student-teacher gets many opportunities to conduct assembly. Thus they get exposed and get acquainted with the conduct of assembly.They are also given training in march past, various games and sports. The Physical Education laboratory is well equipped so that the students get advantage of the physical education activities.The student-teachers are also taught the measurements and patterns of the courts pertaining to various games and they are also made to draw them repeatedly so that they can get acquainted with the rules of the games and the measurements of the courts.All this is done with a view that these student-teachers of the college of education should be benefited from them and they in turn will be able to conduct games / assembly / sports in the schools where they get employed.
  
c)PREPARATION OF TEACHING-LEARNING MATERIAL (TLM): The student-teachers are well guided by the lecturers in preparing and adopting useful and suitable TLM in their teaching. The teaching staff never get compromised with nominal teaching aids. So the student-teachers are always set on alert regarding the preparation of teaching-learning material. At present the college has a wonderful exhibition of the TLM the student-teachers made so far. A competitive spirit is created among the student-teachers in preparation of TLM so that they think creatively and make the TLM using their creativity. This makes them interested in their teaching and the pupils also pay interest to listen to student-teachers’ lessons and get benefited.
    
  
3.EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES: The student-teachers, who are interested, are guided and set to gardening. They are guided in decorative gardening as well as kitchen-gardening. As the students of this college are women, they take a lot of interest in gardening. Legal awareness camps are conducted for the students of the college so that they get a knowledge of simple solutions to the legal matters one daily comes across.
An event is conducted every year for the student-teacher’s talents presentation. This enables the student-teachers, who know that they are talented in a particular area, to present their talents and the college makes use of their talents. The talent-presentation event also enables the student-teachers, who do not know their talents, to search their talents, tap them out and present them.
