The CCT program is designed to encourage significant student involvement in the learning process by documenting academic experiences that take place outside the classroom. The CCT is a verifiable university document that bears the University seal.
Let us discuss them one by one. Educational Value These activities have great "educational" potential. All classroom teaching is theoretical. Practical knowledge can be imparted through co-curricular activities.
Excursions and tours provide firsthand experience and reinforce classroom knowledge in subjects like history, geography, nature study etc. Language and expression improves through debates and recitations. Teaching of History gets vitalized by dramatization. Practical lessons in civics can be given through student self-government.
School magazines teach students the art of writing forcefully and effectively.
Celebration of functions develops organizational capacities and leadership qualities in students. Projects provide direct learning opportunities. Psychological Value These activities as the name suggests meet the psychological needs of the students, mainly with reference to social demands of the pupils.
They help in expressing personal behavior and provide a vehicle for creative thinking. The instinct of gregariousness can be directed through self-government, social service and other group work.
Co-curricular activities provide valuable opportunities in which these drives may be capitalized for educational benefit. But fortunately or unfortunately, they may not come up to the required expectation e. Such activities provide a means of emotional adjustment for students. These activities, thus, cater to aptitude, interests and abilities of students and sometimes act as a determining factor for the choice of future vocation.
Development of Social Value Social cooperation is recognized as one of the important demands of citizenship. It is difficult to teach through school subjects like Languages, Mathematics or Social Sciences.
By 'participating in group activities, students learn good manners and develop a sense of cooperation. Membership in a club, student council, dramatic cast or an athletic team requires co-operation. Students learn to appreciate the relationship of an individual to the social group.
Through team activities, students learn social cooperation. They develop group spirit, 'we' - feeling, belongingness, unity and ability to be co-operative. Development of Civic Value In group activities students learn the value of doing one's duty. For example, students' self-government in schools provides an excellent training in exercising one's franchise and shouldering responsibilities.
These activities train the students for good citizenship. Co curricular activities offer many opportunities for the development of self-discipline e. They develop in students a spirit of toleration of others' views, healthy exchange of ideas, fellow feeling and accepting victory and defeat with grace.
Secondly, the school is a miniature society and the activities of the school should have direct relations with the activities of the society. Qualities like initiative and leadership are not always developed in a classroom. On the playground, students get opportunities to develop leadership qualities like initiative, decision-making, judgment, tolerance etc.
These qualities are required for a democratic society. Many girls and boys have little practice in controlling themselves and in directing their own affairs. They have not developed the ability to do these things.
As a result, when they are placed in settings that demand self-direction, they are lost. Co-curricular activities provide numerous situations in which students may gradually get increasing responsibilities for their own direction.Northfield Mount Hermon School, commonly referred to as NMH, is a co-educational college-preparatory school for both boarding and day students in grades 9–12 and postgraduates.
