In todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s UOI session, students were made to word in groups in order to draw/write anything that came to their mind when they thought of Ã¢â‚¬Å“PEACEÃ¢â‚¬Â on the given chart paper. After this, they shifted to the other groupÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s table and destroyed that groupÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s work piece. After some time, they went back back to their own chart which was now distorted and were asked to reconstruct it. They came up with statements like Ã¢â‚¬Å“MaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢am, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not possible to put all the pieces back. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s completely destroyedÃ¢â‚¬Â. They then reflected on the following questions:-
~How were you feeling while you were creating your beautiful chart?
~What made you destroy otherÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s chart?
~ How did you feel while destroying it?
~ How did you feel when you saw your beautiful chart being destroyed?
~ Was it easy to reconstruct your tattered chart?
~ Lesson learnt?
Later on, as a class, we went through a speech by Sundar Pichai about the cockroach theory. Through this reading, students acknowledged the fact that maintaining peace is not just about being silent but not to react, rather respond thoughtfully.
We, as a class, solved some subtraction questions related to integers using jodo blocks and later on, some questions were given to students to solve in their math notebook.
In this session, learners were introduced to the idea of debate and its various aspects like how it is conducted, what are the etiquettes to follow, what are the sides and how many rounds do we have. As a part of reflecting upon their learning, they filled an exit card having three blocks:-
1)3 things I learned;
2)2 most important things;
3)1 question I still have
