  • ABSTRACT

    The action research was carried out to improve caring and maintenance of text books

    and note books in B.S.F Senior Secondary school, Jalandhar Cantt. . It was an effort

    to provide strategies for proper maintenance of text books and note books by the VIth

    standard students of the school. Interventions focused on problem about improper

    maintenance of books by VIth

    standard students so as to make them aware about

    importance of caring and maintain books to have enhanced teaching learning

    process, which in a way helps the students to perform and achieve better in

    academics.

  • INTRODUCTION

    A textbook is a standardised manual of instruction in a particular branch of study. It

    is a collection of knowledge, concepts, and principles of selected topics. Textbooks

    are written by one or more teachers, college professors or education experts and

    published according to the needs of curriculum and educational institutions. In India,

    National Council for Educational Research and Technology (NCERT) publishes

    textbooks for different subjects of Classes I to XII to be used in various Central

    Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) schools.

    In 19th century, textbooks have become the primary teaching resource for most

    children. Technological advancement has changed the trend of referring textbooks in

    schools. The printed format is replaced by use of online electronic books. Online and

    digital materials are making easy for students to access materials other than the

    textbook. Students now have access to electronic and PDF books, online tutoring

    systems and video lectures. Although, there is change in way of accessing learning

    resources from printed textbook to digital books or resources, there is major

    emphasis on use of printed textbooks in all schools in India. In Central Board of

    Secondary Education (CBSE) affiliated schools, exams are strictly based on the

    prescribed textbooks published by NCERT. So, it is important to maintain textbook

    and notebook is critical to academic success.

    Notebooks are prime aid for studying as students record their daily notes and

    exercise. In some schools marks are given for maintenance of notebooks and

    textbooks with due reason their importance in learning process. There are specific

    ways of maintaining books and it is found that students are who maintain notebooks

    with set of notes are more successful. Proper maintenance of notebooks and

    textbooks are advantageous for students in every step of their academic life. These

    are resources with balanced, chronological presentation of information.

    This action research was done with regard to few VIth

    standard students who were

    found to have poorly managed textbooks and notebooks. It was my concern and

    expectation to have proper maintenance of their books for their own benefit in

    teaching learning process.

  • When I visited VIth

    C of the school for the first time, I found a student having

    carelessly maintained books and notebooks which triggered me to check their

    textbooks and notebooks in random manner. I observed few of students having

    poorly maintained textbooks and notebooks. This problem seems to be problem for

    themselves and their subject teachers. It has been concern among teachers for the

    students negligence. A teacher told me that improper maintenance of book was a

    problem faced in VIth

    standard. There were cases of giving marks for maintenance of

    books with due reason to inculcate students the sense of caring books. Teachers say

    that students used to tear pages from their notebooks and they wrote unnecessary on

    cover page, sometimes inside pages and damage books. It was a problem amongst

    other teachers too. In a way I come forward with this area for my research.

    For few days, I was observing, questioning, and taking informal interview so as to

    know the cause of nook and corner. My approach was to bring a change by directing

    students to care, maintain and organize books properly through some simple

    solutions. Instructions, workshop, individualised counseling and guiding students to

    follow certain procedures and steps of keeping note books and text books with care

    was prime focus. Book binding, covering book and caring books were emphasised in

    the workshop, instruction, guidelines and during individualised counseling. After

    two weeks of continuous remediation and guidance, students were found motivated

    in caring and maintaining text books and note books properly.

  • SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

    Action research on providing strategies to VIth

    grade students for proper

    maintenance of notebooks and textbooks is found to help students to success high in

    their academics. It will be helpful for the students, teachers, parents and to the

    school. As a student progresses, their care and maintaining textbooks and notebooks

    is highly demanded. Properly maintained textbooks and notebooks will make

    students more organised and systematic in their learning life. There are chances of

    lacking strategies which are critical to school success like effective s tudying,

    reading comprehension, test taking, or writing strategies if books are not properly

    maintained. This lack of effective strategies often leads to frustration, poor grades,

    weak motivation, and a dwindling self-esteem.

    I was trying to help students to encourage them for maintaining their books on a

    regular basis. Within weeks I noticed that they are more organised, structured, and

    systematic in their approach on maintaining their books.

    The action research was applicable for almost all the school setting and academic

    institutions. Text books and note books are indispensable part of students life.
