The English capacity building workshop comprised 21 participants, 10 facilitators, 9 Hindi co-development participants and 9 English co- development participants. It commenced with a recapitulation of the topics and reflections from the previous workshop during which an insightful summary of ideas and concepts on the nature of language, language acquisition, reading strategies and the concept of reading emerged. The context setting was done by recapitulating the learnings from the previous workshops and introducing the topics of the forthcoming interaction. Kamleshji introduced the topics for the current workshop. He reiterated that in continuation with the previous workshops, we would explore the different perspectives on literacy, reading and writing, and their relevance in the classroom. The first session was on the “Origins of Writing”. In this session, the participants explored how man must have created symbols for communication through many interesting experiential activities. This gave the participants a sense of the journey of the written word from early man’s symbolic pictographic representations of thought to the present day alphabetic and syllabic systems.
