RESEARCH WORK ON THE USE OF TEACHING AIDS IN SOCIAL STUDIES IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS.

Teaching Aids are one of the basic components in the teaching- learning process. An efficient teacher is always one who makes maximum utilisation of these teaching aids while executing his work inside and outside the classroom. But it is found out that most of the time teachers use only the text book and no additional or supplementary teaching aids are made use of. It is a glaring fact that even trained teachers seem to give least attention to this need. This has therefore resulted in the low achievement of students, especially those coming from rural and interior areas of the state. There might be a number of reasons that have led to the non-utilisation of aids while teaching. It could be due to non -availability of the materials or lack of creativeness on the part of the teacher. It could also be due to lack of infrastructure or management problems recto find out these causes, the research work was carried out by the D.I.E.T, Nongpoh under the supervision of the Principal of the D.I.E.T. The purpose of this research is to find out the utilization of Teaching Aids in the classroom, and to make use of the cheap locally available material specifically in teaching social studies

Education may be considered as a vital process in social sense. It is indispensable for the development of an individual and the society. This world would have been enveloped in the intellectual darkness had it not been illuminated by the light of education. Attempts have been made by the government of India to universalize education in all parts of the country with special emphasis on Primary Education. Article 45 of the Indian Constitution makes provision for Free and Compulsory Education for all children until they complete the age of 14 years. Inspite of several attempts to fulfill the directive principles, yet there is a huge wastage among the children in primary stage especially in rural areas. In this sense, it was felt necessary to conduct a study to find out the causes that led to the dropping out of these school children of Ri-Bhoi District.
