Salient Features of Prof. Mishra’s Innovative Teaching Technique
Traditionally the locus of the language teaching was the teacher but in the Innovative teaching the learner is the locus.
It’s individualized teaching. The entire teaching methodology and courses are directed towards the learner.
It’s not a traditional Grammar-Translation method.
The Innovative technique emphasizes the sense of the language rather than the grammar of the language.
Innovative technique develops a parallel channel of the target language in the mind of the learner. The new channel of the target language is free and independent of the existing channel of the mother tongue.
According to the Innovative technique, language is a spoken phenomenon. In the beginning the learner is taught spoken Hindi followed by writing and reading.
Innovative technique establishes that the form can create the content. There is an inherent relationship between the form and content. It develops an understanding of this relationship in the mind of the learner.
The creativity of the learner is developed, so that with in limited forms and vocabulary he/she can express his/her self.
The Innovative technique applies block-building method, as the children do. The learner makes set of sentences by him/her self.
The technique assures to give a definite result in definite time.
Purposeful learning. On the very first day the learner is asked why he/she wants to learn Hindi and what is his/her target? The target must be clear in mind.
Register teaching. The teaching is confined to a specific area of vocation i.e. a tourist, a journalist, a diplomat and a business representative. The language used by a business representative is termed as Register of the business representative.
At a higher level the Innovative technique feeds the language at sub-conscious level of the learner, so that it works automatically.
The Philosophy of Innovative technique is “Enjoy the learning and take it easy.”
The pronunciation of the target language. The linguistic Speech Therapy is applied to teach the pronunciation of new sound.
