December 2010 Issue

Teacher Plus is a Hyderabad-based monthly publication primarily aimed at the Indian schoolteacher. “It is a forum within which teachers can raise their concerns, discuss ideas, and share and update their knowledge. Teacher Plus discusses alternative ways of thinking and doing within the context of the Indian classroom, while recognizing the constraints that most teachers face, day to day. In addition, its aim is to foster a sense of community among teachers, of being a part of an important group of change agents.”

The cover photographs were taken at Shibumi :).
