Centre for Civil Society is a think tank, that works to create change through research and action in Public Policy. Project Patang, an initiative of the Centre for Civil Society works to address the challenge of social and academic integration of children enrolled through 25% reservations under the RTE.
In 2016, CCS approached Aawaaz to collaborate to provide training in the Aawaaz curriculum, for critical thinking, general awareness, and public speaking skills to their students in DPS Vasant Vihar. We designed a module on the independence struggle, especially focussed on interactive and engaging instructional methods to make children experience the journey of our historical heroes! The module employed the use of interactive scrolls, role-play, and strategy debates ensuring widespread student interest and participation. The module culminated with a successful student-run theatre production.
