Bihar Language Initiative for Secondary Schools
The Bihar Language Initiative for Secondary Schools (BLISS) project, in collaboration with the Department of International Development (DfID) United Kingdom and the Bihar Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad developed a series of Teacher Development films which were launched in July 2015.
Filmed in different locations in Bihar, English teachers teach reading lessons to secondary school learners. They demonstrate a variety of techniques that can be used in diverse contexts such as large classes, low resource classrooms and in classrooms with fixed furniture.
The films can be used as a self-access learning resource for teachers who may not be able to attend face-to-face training and wish to further their professional development and enable their students become more effective readers.
