Quiz competition for children

Quiz competition for children

Posted by Anonymous at September 23. 2014
We small group of people used to visit to govt schools because of our urge to understand the naunces of primary education and what ails our education sector. As part of our visits, we used to teach the childern some basic science and maths through activities and provoke them to think innovatively and career counseling. While in our interactions with them, we observed that some of them are belittling themselves by comparing them with the better privileged children (private school). This notion of private school children are intelligent and govt school children are deprived is cause of concern. So we got an idea to conduct a competition. What iam proposing now is not panacea but an initiative that gives them confidence that they too can compete and succeed and what really matters is determination. The theme of competition is not to assess the intelligence or content he mugged up in school but create a platform in which every child irrespective of his economic or social background will be given a chance to compete, compete with better privileged. The idea is simply to test the fact "Every child has intelligence and potential to excel, given the opportunity he will". For this we shall try to test keenness or observation, a measure of smartness rather than Content/information in which a better privileged has always some advantage. At the same time competition should serve to bring familiarity among students about competition and develop a general interest. So in this regard i want comments from all of you about the idea of quiz/competition and suggestions about the different formats & content of quizzes that meets our stated objective. Thank you..Sreenadh, working in Bangalore.

hey great initiative and good thinking. You can actually start this program by having simple sports games/ competitions. Then you can start sharing knowledge program/competition and go to a quiz competition. This is to help them in getting to know you children better and also improving their confidence while competing.

Great Thinking, Good Idea! As, you said there should be change in Educational Setup in India. More importance is given to the degrees a teacher has, not his way of teaching. For testing keeness, teach him first and test him for testing smartness, give a common problem, look for a common sense answer.
