The Newspaper In Education classes organised by The Hindu as corporate social responsibility began on Tuesday for the academic year 2012-13 here at the Vijetha Public School.

The Hyderabad-based NIE Co-ordinator Jyothi Raja came especially for this inaugural session at which she explained to the students how by reading newspaper daily they can get a lot of information and knowledge. She said that knowledge, skill and ability were the most essentials things for any student.

Ms. Jyothi told them that these NIE sessions will concentrate on helping them identify their individual skills and tell them ways and means to enhance their abilities and sharpen existing skills.

She told the students an innovative way of using the 5 W’s and 1 H to write their examination answers. She took up an example of the Battle of Plassey and explained to the student how they could reproduce the answer easily by using this technique. She advised them to start their answer with a “what” then continue with “where”, “when”, “who” and finally end with a “why”. She told students the “how” can be used in cases of science examinations and experiments. She assured them that if they were to use this method they can easily ace their examinations.

Co-ordinator from Vijayawada Shailaja advised the students to follow the tips given by NIE resource persons in these special sessions.

After the formal inauguration, introductory session was held by the NIE resource persons Sai Leela. She started off with explaining to the students about the benefits of reading a newspaper. The interactive session had active participation from the students with one of them Mohana Padmaja being quick in grasping the point and even repeating it.
