Our Teaching Methods

Making Lesson Plans:

Every teacher at Highbrow makes at least 3 different lesson plans for each lesson, which include familiarization (i.e. new words to be introduced in the lesson) and the integration of all 4 aspects of the Quad Seek methodology.

Before the lesson begins, the children are made to familiarise with the unknown words to be used in it, through different methods like word-cards, games, craft, songs etc. – which attempt to provoke different aspects of Quad seek in the learner. The reason for doing so is that, each child is bound to have a different kind of aptitude, which may make them more inclined to either the physical, the spiritual, the intellectual or the emotional aspect, of Quad Seek. It is imperative to gauge this inclination, in order to decide what kind of study-plan would thus work best with the child.

Class Structure
Alternative Teaching Methods

From any small time school to IIT, IIM or Harvard, each class (in fact each subject) has its exceptionally bright students (thatare quick to understand what is taught), the ones that are mildly interested and the ones that find it really hard to even get the basics right.

In most cases such as this, a teacher teaches a lesson expecting all of the above 3 categories to learn at one go, at the same speed. This in turn, draws one or the other category further away from the topic. In Highbrow each class will have an individual library and Laboratory, which would always be stocked with books and tools related to the topic taught by the teacher. So in a typical class, where the teacher finds students that understand the lesson easier than others, he/she would move that group to the library corner and give them some more advanced/ challenging tasks to do, using books. The laboratory will be used to explain topics in a practical manner. This arrangement would ensure maximum learning for each child to the best of their interest and caliber.

Also, at Highbrow we have a format of just 25 students per-class, and students are taught in groups of three based on their attributes and inclinations. Due to this, our teacher-student ratio is high, in order to ensure each student gets individual attention.
