The Out of Syllabus Project is an initiative of Project FUEL and FUEL Foundation to document, design and celebrate the wisdom of our teachers through stories of their lives and life lessons.
With the Out of Syllabus project, we aspire to reimagine role-models for students within academic institutions and encourage them to seek inspiration from the ones, they’ve known forever. The project aims at transforming school aisles into ‘Wisdom Corridors’ i.e., a gallery exhibiting life-lessons of teachers that students can access when feeling lost or alone.
It also focuses on enhancing immersive conversations between teachers and students by creating a safe space for them to connect. Alongside, creating a unique database of learning that can act as a repository on human interest stories and as an advice bank for budding change makers.
We begin by creating a ‘Wisdom Club’ in school. A curated set of students are coached in 21st century skills of communication, creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, film making and journalism.
The intra and the inter-country ‘Wisdom Clubs’ come together as a collective, to build cross-cultural understanding and promote peace.
The student members of the ‘Wisdom Club’ work alongside award-winning designers and illustrators to create striking and informative poster prints that carry the life lessons of the teachers along with their pictures. These exhibits transform the school corridors/walls into a “Wisdom Gallery” that tells its spectators the life-stories of those teachers.
The Life Lesson Journal attempts to create a safe-space for students to document the right amount of wisdom they deem necessary for their personal growth. The journal has been handcrafted with curated questions to heal the clutters of a conflicted mind. And with each answer, we've only come across more focused reflectors and evolved thinkers. Help your child discover the wisdom within. Click here to buy the Journal
" My experience has been phenomenal. I am amazed by the students. The confidence with which they are asking questions to us (teachers) is commendable. Also, the diversity and creativity in their questions shows how their critical thinking skills are being polished. It is a wonderful project. I wish we had access to a project like this, when I was in school. I would highly recommend ‘The Out of Syllabus Project’ to all educators. "
" I feel Out of Syllabus Project is a fantastic idea. Like spirituality is connecting to the seed of creation inside us. This project provides the space to bring out the spiritual dimension in us by using a cognitive path in education which is greatly missing. This project is a spontaneous process. In fact, it should be the idea for Youth Leaders. We should cascade this project to our family, neighbors and communities. The greatest thing in the world is human knowledge. It is never about who we are rather it is always about what we are. And this project lets us realize this factor in life. "
" Sitting across our daughter and answering her questions on the learnings of our life, was a unique experience. We were so thrilled to notice the spark in her eyes and yet, the way she was mentored to maintain her professionalism was commendable. It made us feel extremely proud. We cannot thank Project FUEL and Unison World School enough for creating such an opportunity for our daughter."
