This paper has been a really interesting one. It has really help me gain clarity on writing non fiction and its big genres which was a complicated topic for me.
The cherry on the cake is the speaker Mrs.Pandit’s guidance and teaching which help us connect to the intricate and most complicated topics in the simplest way. It is surely going to improve my teaching style and is largely going to be beneficial to my students. – Hawwa Kanchwala, MSB Educational Institute

Indeed The techniques that I have learnt through this course have given me ideas on ways to steer my students’ writing skills. The emphasis on leading the learners into writing through a step by step process, I know I can do a much better job at engaging my students when i see them again in school.
However, I observe that the responses I have been receiving from my students in online sessions, ever since I started using the prompts shared at this course, have been a treat to read. am glad I took up this course that made my Saturdays productive. – Anjum Panna, Content Creator, Pragnya Bodhini High School.
I am really delightful to share my experience with the online creative writing course both for primary as well as secondary. The course has given me an insight of different ideation techniques to be practiced in the class with students. I am overwhelmed with the content taught in the course. I am thankful to Usha ma’am for giving this platform and sharing her thoughts about the subject matter with different examples. – Niharika Khanna, Lancer’s Convent Senior Secondary 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
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
Lots of learning – I understood the meaning of engaging in the task. Often, we give strategies to our students without having engaged in it ourselves. As I engaged in each component of the descriptive techniques, I realised that I need to build the scaffolds simultaneously for my students to engage themselves in descriptive writing and enjoy it at the same time. I enjoyed doing the assignment as I could visualise while I was writing down my thought. – Shantala Trasikar, Hillsprings International School
