Grades 7 & 8 Field trip – Topic ‘Media & Democracy’


Grades 7 and 8 students of Orchids The International School – Jalahalli, one of the finest schools close to Yeshwanthpur, have a chapter on ‘Media & Democracy’ in Social studies. In order to provide a practical dimension to this topic, these students were taken on a field trip to a farm house near Nelamangala to watch live shooting of a TV serial-‘Durga’ (telecast on Suvarna channel at 7:00 p.m.) Students were able to observe how media and shooting is done and how the crew worked on aspects such as placement of camera etc. It was a pleasant and informative experience for the students who got an opportunity to see a live recording. They were able to relate this practical experience with their lesson.
