I enjoyed the learning. I wish some teacher had taught me all this when I was in school. Not an English honours person, I am learning about some of these details now. Very well organised and carefully curated information and concepts brought to us in the lucid manner that is quintessentially Mrs Pandit. Thank you for the clarity – Sushmita Ganguly, Headmistress, Cathedral & John Connon School
Absolutely astonishing. I have attended 100s of workshops in my life, none is as systematised as yours. I would rate you as number one teacher in the world. – Hema J Chandra, Authorised Jolly Phonics Trainer with Jolly Learning ,UK. Principal director with Word Masti Phonics & Grammar Institute.
I am truly enjoying the training. It gets me thinking differently. The assignments are an eye opener in a good way. I find the assignments challenging and motivating. An amazing learning experience that goes beyond my wildest expectation of what an online workshop could be. – Sandhya Malik, The Shri Ram School, Delhi
The non-fiction genre is something that I have always disliked, as a student and as a teacher. Probably because I always found it ‘hard’. I wasn’t even looking forward for this paper, infact I was dreading it, especially the assignment. But, you have made it so simple to understand, that now it seems I can manage, if not excel.
I will be able to teach this genre in a much better way now that I have understood it better myself. You make the most complex things look so simple. That is the mark of a great teacher. Deep gratitude – Shraddha Goyal, Little Angels International School, Mumbai
The content of Paper 4 was systematically explained from one genre to the next. The structure, requirements and vocabulary for each genre were explained lucidly. There was more clarity with the examples that were given, and the notes really helped. Thank you so much for sharing them.
I especially enjoyed learning about the ideation techniques which will be very useful and provide a ready reckoner for writing under these genres. Thank you. – Shruti Mathur, The Shri Ram School, Delhi

The creative writing course taken by Ms Usha Pandit is not only helpful in terms of content but also gives us valuable resources to teach as well as assess our students.

The content is exhaustive. Mrs. Pandit’s knowledge and the clarity with which she delivers is impeccable. This is going to benefit me extremely. I had forgotten so many of these things because of non-usage as I teach special learners. – Geeta Dalal, Profession Psychologist and Special Educator, JBCN International School
The content, though vast has been covered well. The notes complement the actual class and together provide an invaluable resource. The practice needed to obtain a certain mastery over these will take time. But it has surely leant the confidence to take it up with students in the prescribed way. At the risk of being repetitive, I would still like to add that the pre-readings and viewings are extremely helpful and set the tone for the class. I’m extremely glad that I opted for the course as it is helping me in reinforcing all that I already knew and teaching me much more. A big thank you! – Ritu Sikka, The Heritage School, Delhi
