Baljeet Singh


Teacher effectiveness is a broadly used term that consists of characteristics, proficiencies, teaching skills and behaviours of teachers at all educational levels that empower students to reach to desired level.  This may include the accomplishment of precise learning objectives as well as broader learning goals such as being able to solve problems, think critically, work collaboratively, and become effective citizens.  In the present investigation, Review of related literature revealed that there is a gap in expected and existing competencies of social science teachers. One of the major findings of these studies revealed that teachers in our own country are mostly following fixed ways of teaching in the classroom.  It is because the education program for teachers prepares the teacher to follow one of a few fixed ways of teaching. Therefore, a strong need of development of activity-based lesson plans teachers which will  update their knowledge and skills for effective social science teaching. Therefore this paper deals with the development of Activity Based lesson plans for effective teaching in social sciences (ABTM)
