Course Description

Anand Sahib course is designed for children aged seven years and above and will cover the first five pauris (stanzas) and the fortieth pauri of Anand Sahib. The course will help children learn about the third Nanak, Guru Amardas Sahib. It will also introduce the children to new Gurbani words that will expand their vocabulary and help them improve their Gurbani comprehension skills.

The course contains eight separate lessons ranging from three to seven minutes each. Keeping in mind the young audience, easy language and explanations have been used in the lessons for better comprehension of Gurbani’s message. The modules have been prepared in a manner that will help children acquire important lessons in each video. For this, questions are answered before the start of each lesson. These questions help them think about what they already know and what they want to learn more about. There is also a quiz at the end of the course to help them test their learnings.

In designing and developing these courses, SikhRI intends to help build a sense of curiosity in the children, so that they want to learn more. The courses give insight into the relevance of the Guru’s message and its applicability today. SikhRI is aware that with the advances in technology, independent education is becoming more prevalent in the education landscape, and is revolutionizing the education system. There are very few courses for children on Sikhi related topics in the online space. SikhRI hopes to fill that gap in a meaningful and creative manner.

This children’s Anand Sahib course has been made available in the memory of Dr. Pritam Singh and Harminder Kaur, San Antonio, TX.
