Not long ago, TV and newspapers introduced educational successes gained by Ryonghung Primary School in Taesong District, Pyongyang.

“Until a few years ago, the school failed to achieve fame. But the performance of pupils as a whole has now increased and the number of those who enrol at schools of higher grade is also on the sharp rise. The secret of its success owes much to the steady pushing of the work to improve the abilities of teachers,” said Pak Chun Ok, headmistress of the school.

The school channels big efforts into originally embodying a variety of teaching methods to suit their specific features.

“It was effective to make visual aids, multimedia presentations and others so that they could see things with their own eyes and touch them and, especially, to explain them in relationship with their bodies”, “It is very important for teachers at primary schools aimed at consolidating the foundation of knowledge not to neglect even a trifling thing but to exactly teach everything in detail” and “It is required to make pupils wait for lessons like a game. It is important to help them learn a new thing with pleasure and develop confidence in them.”

Such views are invaluable experiences gained by the teachers of the school in the course of inquiring into new teaching methods.

The school now uses teaching aids and multimedia presentations at almost all lessons, irrespective of school years, and teachers make their teaching plans as they prepare for three or four examples including cartoon and picture story in order to give an explanation of a piece of knowledge.

Cooperation between veterans with rich teaching qualities and young teachers with short careers, who bring out novel ideas, proves effective.

According to An Ok Gyong, a section chief of the school, the effect was great when they formed groups of pupils to suit the psychological features of children with a competitive spirit and encouraged them to present the results of study and solve problems in the way of competition.

“For all pupils without omission!”—this is another requirement teachers attach importance to.

Teacher Kim Un Song said that the abilities of those who were behindhand in study make fast progress in their scholarly performance when the teachers work harder to find efficient teaching methods for those who are slow in understanding and steadily guide them in their review and preparations of lessons.

Teachers of the school share experiences and lessons through the running of the day of section every Thursday and the district-wide teaching judgment of teachers and strive to achieve greater successes.

“We are neither discouraged for lagging behind nor conceited for leading others. An important thing is to find out a way of development and steadily advance,” said Pak Chun Ok.
