Medium of Instruction
Both, at school and college level, the medium of instruction is mainly English and teaching of English is one of the specialities of Noor School and College, Mansehra as it is led by a professional teacher trainer of English language. So the English teachers of Noor are especially trained for teaching English as a language and using it as a medium of instruction. The students of Noor School & College Mansehra are trained to use English among themselves and with teachers during the School and College hours. English language is especially focused because without the proficiency in English language it really becomes difficult to be highly successful in prevalent system of examinations where mostly students are supposed to write essay type answers in English. If students are not really proficient in English language, they are only left with the choice of cramming. Noor School & College Mansehra is highly against this full time cramming so it intends to take students to the level where they can express themselves fluently in written and spoken language without cramming. For this purpose, the management of Noor School & College Mansehra has developed a full-fledged language lab in the institution which will help students in learning English a great deal.
Noor is an English medium school so it tries to inculcate all four skills of English language in our students.
Implementation of Four Skills for Teaching of Language:
While teaching Urdu, our national language, it is once again made certain that our students learn all these four communication skills in Urdu as well.
|Teaching Listening: Listening is the language modality that is used most frequently. Students may receive as much as 90% of their in-school information through listening to instructors and to one another. Noor helps its students to become effective listeners. For this purpose Noor provides modeling listening strategies and listening practice in authentic situations.||Teaching Speaking: Speaking plays a key role in teaching learning strategies. Noor inspires its students to share their ideas to learn more effectively. Noor prepares the students to speak fluently, accurately and confidently.|
|Teaching Reading: It is a cognitive process of decoding symbols, to derive meaning from text as in reading a book or any other literature. For becoming good reader Noor sets certain rules i.e. Read extensively, integrate information in the text with existing knowledge, have a flexible reading style, depending on what they are reading, use inference to understand the text to make them best readers.||Teaching Writing: Noorian’s initially learn to use writing strategies, teachers frequently discuss when and how to use the strategies throughout the writing process, as well as why the strategies are helpful. Once students learn to use a variety of strategies independently, through the gradual release process, Noor helps them in understanding how to select appropriate strategies and use them across a range of writing tasks.|
