We have started formulating Natural Disaster Management Plans. This required critical understanding of the various stages that need to be kept in mind. We had to understand the magnitude and location of the concerned disaster. This helped us to come up with plans for LEDC and MEDC and reflect upon the differences in terms of preparation, prevention and recovery in a rich vs poor country. We also focused on immediate and long term aids.
Language and Literature
After productive discussions on the elements of a story and components of a storyline, we were given a few stories by Anton Chekhov to choose from and analyse using Freytag’s Pyramid. Thereafter, we revised character analysis using STEAL. Moving up the ladder, we tried writing character analysis essays.

We researched on various modern buildings and finally predicted the architecture 50 years from now in the form of a building. This architectural structure (it can be a villa, a building or a restaurant design) will be our end product. While finalizing the end product, we thought of our resources and sustainability so that we can have a better place to live.
We had our formative assessment on the derivation of scales – major and minor on the staff.
We have completed our research work on different art movements, artists and art works associated with them. During our research work we tried to understand composition arrangement, symbolic representation of colours and the ways in which innovative ideas were used. Thereafter, we tried to critically analyse how art works vary in different art movements. Based on the research, we created mind maps and layouts for our final art work. We also tried to work upon meaningful application of colours in our art works. We have completed the layout and process journal and have started our final work.
