STEP's aim is to help low-income secondary school Indian students develop English fluency to be successful in university and the workforce.
The STEP (Seekho - Teachers of English Program) team consists of high school students and professional English as an Additional Language (EAL) educators who originally met at AES. We have written and revised this curriculum over six years with support from the US Embassy in India and a published English as an Additional Language (EAL) educator.
This specific STEP curriculum (Last revised July 2020) was designed and belongs to alumni of the Make A Difference Precollege project at the American Embassy School, New Delhi (AES).
