Nilambur: Suresh, a teacher at the Government Manavedan Vocational Higher Secondary School in Nilambur, has introduced the Class 9 Physics text book in the form of short stories. The textbook is mainly in the form of reaching conclusions through experiments. This created issues to a visually impaired student in the class. This led to the search for an alternative way to teach Physics which later ended in short stories.
All the stories are relating to daily life. The book based on such an idea that blindness is never a hindrance to imagination. This book will be useful for the students who find Physics as a difficult subject.
The book offers a QR code (which can be felt by touching) which can be scanned using mobile phones to hear the audio version of the stories.
The Archimedes' principle, Newton’s Laws and all other concepts are introduced to students in the form of stories. All the stories are inspired from life events of the teacher since childhood. The lessons included in first part text book of Class 9 are written in form of short stories in the book.
The book is dedicated as a gift to differently-abled students on the International Day of Disabled Persons 2019, December 3. The book was released by Head Master Abdul Nassar and Principal Anitha Abraham.
Once permission is obtained from the government, the book will be made available for free in all schools for blind children, said Suresh.
