Examples of some VC’s were shown to have some ideas how students react to some hot topics like extremism, human trafficking or hate speech and students become more aggressive during India and Pakistan VC etc.
Sandhya also told us tips- How to train students for VC?
• Initially teach the students from online resources available to the website.
• Divide the students in groups by giving them specific topics to be prepared.
• Let them first research and collect natural data b conversing the topics with their friends, elders etc.
• Pen down the personal thoughts
• Students should be thought to that they are not to compete with anyone, they should have healthy conversation.
• Should develop an habit to agree/ disagree with anyone and listen patiently
• Need to make them aware about their body language and keep smile on the face.
• Everyone should get the chance to speak, nobody should overshadow the other.

As parents we need to help children relax and concentrate, instead of increasing pressure on them.
Family pressure, adds to the self-expectation of students, multiplying stress levels. A child can feel alienated from his/her family and parents if too much pressure is put on him or her.

If the parent starts having sleepless nights worrying about the child’s future, they need to remember that the pressure on the child is similar, if not greater. When asked about what should be done if parents find their ward spending more time taking breaks than spending on studies, child psychologist Dr. Archana Sharma said, Different students have different standards and methods of learning, and parents need to help them identify their capabilities and work towards the goal. Some stress relieving ideas were also suggested like breathing exercises, drinking atleast 7-8 glasses of water in a day.

Believe in yourself. If you prepare for the exams properly you should do fine, meaning that there is no need to worry excessively.
Don’t try to be perfect. It’s great to succeed and reach for the stars, but keep things in balance. If you think that “anything less than a 2.1 means I’ve failed” then you are creating mountains of unnecessary stress for yourself. Aim to do your best but do recognise that none of us can be perfect all of the time.

Dr. Anita started the workshop with the quotes “Every teacher is a counsellor”. She explained about the special needs of special children and the learning disabilities faced by them. She further said that teacher should connect and reciprocate with them. Following activities will be helpful in enhancing their formation of letters like writing through water colours, crayons (with coarse structure), mud painting etc. Scribbling walls or doodling and rainbow writing are another effective technique to enhance their learning. Clay activity helps in strengthening the muscle for writing. Studying for longer duration creates monotony, in order to break that monotony various memory games, brain drill activity and icebreakers should be included.
At the end, it is not always necessary that children suffering from special needs are less smart for e.g. Einstein, Walt Disney etc.
