- "Language bears within itself the necessity of its own critique, deconstructive criticism aims to show that any text inevitably undermines its own claims to have a determinate meaning, and licences the reader to produce his own meanings out of it by an activity of semantic 'freeplay' (Derrida, 1978, in Lodge, 1988, p. 108). Is it possible to do deconstructive reading of The White Tiger? How?

As necessary as ongoing assessment is
for both teachers and students, many teachers complain that constant testing
stifles their creativity and destroys student interest, at a time when
motivation is mandatory for the current crop of media-saturated students. So,
how can teachers assess student learning and evaluate the quality of their own
teaching, without losing the interest of their students?
It is not a question without an answer. The answer is plain, simple and straightforward. Use Quiz!
It helps to ensure that students understand what you are teaching and
-- when they don’t -- to understand where your teaching has missed the mark.
Moreover, it helps students to check their
progress and assess their need to pay attention in classroom discussions.
Here are some interesting outcome of our experiment of ‘Using Quiz for Teaching’:
Students identified and
rated following benefits of using Quiz in teaching:
It helps to do follow-up
reading, everyday, after face-2-face classroom discussion
It helps in increased
concentration in classroom interaction
It improves reading habits
as they read with specific purpose to find specific information.
It cultivates the habit of
taking running notes while the face-2-face classroom interaction is going on.
|As students voted for Unit-End-Quiz, we have put it in practice rather than daily or weekly quizzes|
It is observed that ‘this approach
encourages collaborative learning and creates a sense of community among the
students. It also gets students coming to class prepared, and I think it makes
the quizzes a more positive and useful learning experience’.
