BRAIN BASED LEARNING: HOLISTIC APPROACH TO TEACHING AND LEARNINGThe Brain Based Learning (BBL) is a comprehensive approach to instruction based on the structure and function of the brain. Renate Caine and Geoffry Caine have postulated twelve principles of BBL theory, which are further condensed into three instructional elements namely, relaxed alertness, orchestrated immersion, and active processing. Relax alertness is an optimal state of mind, comprising of low threat and high challenge, emphasizing that the learners should feel secure so that they can take a risk. The orchestrated immersion provides the learners with rich, complex experiences that include options and sense of wholeness. Active processing refers to theoretical organization and internalization of meaningful and conceptually coherent information by the learner. In this article we present in depth discussion on these three elements of BBL, highlighting their importance and implication.

EFFECTIVENESS OF RIGHT TO EDUCATION ACT 2009 IN PRIMARY AND UPPER PRIMARY SCHOOLS OF DISTRICT ALMORA, UTTARAKHAND: AN EVALUATIVE STUDY
The Right to Education Act, a fundamental right provides for free and compulsory education for every child between the age group of 6-14 years. While the Act has made the State responsible for educating each and every child, it has restricted the agencies that can provide education. Section 19 of the Act states “Where a school established before the commencement of this Act does not fulfil the norms and standards specified in the RTE schedule, it shall take steps to fulfil such norms and standards specified in the schedule at its own expenses within a period of 3 years from the commencement of the Act”. According to this, both the recognised and unrecognised schools will have to meet the new norms for recognition under the RTE Act. The unrecognised schools would additionally have to meet the present State norms for recognition. In the light of it, the paper aims to explore the effectiveness of the RTE Act in the Almora district of Uttarakhand.

THE PRE SERVICE TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMME AND WISDOM
Teachers play a prominent role in national and social reconstruction and in transmission of wisdom, knowledge and experiences of one generation to another generation. The pre service teacher training programme is a programme where we prepare prospective teachers. It should be designed as that emphasizes comprehension and reasoning, transformation and reflection. To articulate and justify this conception, the present study responds to following questions: What are the sources of the wisdom base teaching? In what terms can these sources be conceptualized? How the processes of pedagogical reasoning and action helps in wisdom base teaching? And what are the implications for teaching policy and educational reform? The answers — informed by philosophy, psychology and sociology — go far beyond current reform assumptions and initiatives. The outcome for educational practitioners, scholars, and policymakers is a major redirection in how teaching is to be understood and teachers are to be trained and evaluated.
