IV.  Guideline for Teachers
      This is a fundamental & introductory course in the disciplines of sociology and anthropology and hence should he taught in such a way that the knowledge and skill gained from this course could be used to better understand any culture and society in general and Nepali culture and society in particular. (Examples should be delivered Nepali society and culture)
      While teaching this course attention should be given to make it as participatory as possible. Students might be from various backgrounds in terms of socio- economic status, caste/ethnic composition, sex and value orientations. This, itself is an immense treasure and their life experience could form the leaching material. Experience sharing would provide good exposure to all students and this would lead to smooth teaching and learning.
      Attempt should be made to get input from the students on units III, IV and V If the students were from different places (districts/regions), affiliated to different caste/ethnic group & religions, this would provide variability and hence would make the class livelier.
      While teaching unit IX, students should be involved in practicum. Each student either in a group of 3-5 or individual should be assigned to a fieldwork/survey and they should be motivated to prepare field reports. This assignment should also be graded and should carry 20 points. Once graded. this unit should no more become a candidate for the final examination.
