Discussion Class is an informal method of teaching students by the students!! Yes, the teacher himself/herself is also a student of the same age or few years elder. Because the teachers were students themselves, they could relate the problems much more easily than someone not familiar with the thinking of the students. The Discussion mode of education is very powerful and not only builds the confidence of the student but also enables them to become a self-learner and build strong communication skills.
Association encourages and supports setting up of Discussion Class centers across Karnataka. Our DC students are conducting Discussion classes in their native places and areas where they are studying.
