An Eye for Detail
About the Organisation: Step Up for India was started when a few volunteers came to the common conclusion that the English reading skills of children in the 4th and 5th grade in Karnataka’s government schools was significantly lower than the textbook level. They realised that there was a real need to find a solution to teaching English keeping in mind constraints of volunteers, students and the system. They have created a highly structured English curriculum and founded a ‘Volunteer Team Teaching’ system that enables short-term volunteers to effectively teach students who have no help otherwise. Purpose of the Project: This volunteering opportunity is part of Step Up for India’s ‘Teacher Empowerment Program’ under the ‘Digital Outreach Program’. While Step Up for India is trying to create a digital curriculum for volunteers and teachers, they require volunteering help to proofread the content that is being developed. The content is in English, Kannada, Hindi and Marathi. The volunteer needs to be fluent with one of the above languages and the grammatical use of the language. Key Responsibilities:
- Ability to proofread content for curriculum in textbooks
- An eye for detail and grammatical errors
- Make the necessary changes as and when required
- Be able to edit the text in a concise manner
- Add valuable contributions to the text when seen necessary
Impact: This volunteering opportunity will involve your skills in benefitting several government school children across Karnataka. It will also help teachers become more familiar with the language and gain expertise in teaching. Time Commitment: Ongoing engagement, can also be a one-time edit for a specific text.
