Please inform your child’s teacher about this Teacher Assistance Program as a resource for study on India. The success of India in Classrooms depends entirely on parent references – see a list of parent supporters here.
IC will have greater success with voluntary help in the following areas: Liaisons (with school districts, administrators), Speakers, Researchers, Office helpers, Trainers, Artists
IC could also help identify misrepresentations about Indian culture or history in your prescribed text book that you might not be aware of. These misrepresentations could cause grief to some your Indian students without your knowledge and mislead their peers. IC would present you with accurate, researched and consistent material to help you do justice to the subject.
IC hopes to establish an on-going association with your school through annual presentations, workshops, demos and exhibits through the participation of parents and active members of your school body.
Parents who are already active in the schools are welcome to receive training along with reference material before they are invited into your classroom. These parents would then qualify to train other parents in the school. This would benefit the school as well as the Indian community.
IC also acts as a non profit resource centre for teachers, parents and others regarding all aspects of the Indian civilization.
Beyond the classroom, IC has found eager listeners in all walks of life – at a spa resort, a yoga class, community centers
You can also train to be a speaker and continue to find appropriate forums where you could share this material. Besides this level of involvement, you might check out the many areas of voluntary support that are listed in the ‘Parent’ section of this page.
IC has made similar slide presentations to audiences in India, where it is just as necessary to educate about ancient India’s contribution to modern civilization.
