Abstract

A three-day orientation course was facilitated by Azim Premji Foundation at the Institute of Advanced Study in Education (IASE) Jabalpur as an introduction to a course on Early Literacy Pedagogy starting from November 2015. A total of 41 participants attended the orientation (3 IASE professors, 17 participants from District Resource Groups and 1 DRS, 10 B. Ed. students, and 10 DIET lecturers and Principals. It was conducted from 7 to 9 September 2015. The objective of the orientation was to build an understanding of literacy as a semiotic system by looking at the following aspects of early literacy: • How do children experience and understand the meanings of symbols and signs early in life, • How the literacy experience involves both cognitive and affective meaning-making • The history of literacy teaching practices, including adult literacy and the many meanings of literacy. This was done through simulations, thought experiments, and discussions, with each one taking the participants closer to the meaning of literacy. The orientation comprised six sessions. The first two sessions gave experiences of signs, symbols, pictures and music.
