An experience of teaching to the tribal teacher-students at Mudo Tamo memorial college, Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh
The author taught for one year at Mudo Tamo Memorial College, Ziro, Arunachal Pradesh, India. Ziro was a hilly town in Arunachal. The natural scenery of the place was beautiful. The college was a Teacher Education Institution only for the course of Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.). The medium of instruction was English. The infrastructure of the college was good. Generally the local tribal students used to take admission in that college. The students were very simple and straight in nature. The curriculum was good, advanced and updated. The author taught 'Human Growth and Development', 'Educational Technology', 'Measurement and Evaluation' and 'Teacher Education'. First time he faced problems to teach and then day to day he tried to improve and got good experience. The level of achievement and intelligence of the students were moderate. Easily they would get the simple concepts, but they would face difficulties to understand the complex and abstract concepts. It was difficult to input something new ideas to them, other hand if any idea was got by them, it was too difficult to remove or change that one. The students were less interested in study and more interested in co-curricular activities such as picnic, dancing, singing, playing, travelling, etc. They would like particular notes and study materials, and without them they wouldn't fill comfortable to study and to write in examination. But they would perform well in examination and in different activities. They were respectful to the teachers and authority.
