Welcome to SikhRI’s Gurmat Education Resource Getting To Know Sohila!
This education resource will introduce students to the Sohila Bani (composition). We have paired lesson units and short informational videos on the Sohila Bani.
There are six lesson units in this resource. Units can be used individually or in combination with others. Each unit begins with an opening discussion, followed by instructions on understanding each Sabad (Infinite-Wisdom) of the Bani. These units allow students to work independently or in group settings. Students are encouraged to create interactive notebooks and write reflections on each Sabad.
In an era where diversity must be acknowledged and appreciated, SikhRI has integrated inclusive learning tools for the instructional purposes of Sohila Bani so that all students can engage at their own pace and through their own learning styles.
For teachers, parents, or facilitators, a “Learning Check” is included to ensure that students have understood the Sabad with the integration of active learning techniques. These lesson units are perfect for home, Gurmat and Panjabi schools, and Sikh camps.
This resource links to The Guru Granth Sahib Project’s Sohila Bani. This education resource is graciously sponsored by a grant from the estate of Sardar Nirwair Singh (Saskatoon, Canada).
