MISTAKE AWARD SCHEME
1. General. A mistake is a ray of hope, when new. High achievers make far more mistakes than rest. Nothing new or better is possible if one has not made a mistake, yesterday. So this was the hypothesis; serving the very foundation of this Scheme. It has been given a start for BBA 8, students of Pakistan Studies.
2. Broad Parameters. It was discussed and finalized in the class, with full consent of every student.
a. The Frequency. The award will be given every month, till the semester lasts.
b. How to establish the positions. Each student will make a brief presentation in the class. The focus would be what mistakes he/she made in the last three weeks. All will be a jury, while the sponsor teacher, Bakhtiar, will give the final decision. Decision will be made for two positions, who stand first and who stands second. There are two contributing factors, what was tried or learnt, and the nature of mistake made.
c. Award. First position gets Rs. 300 and second Rs. 200. Students have decided to contribute Rs.20 each. It was left to the students to decide their individual contribution. Rs. 280 is thus collected by the students, and an equal amount is contributed by the teacher, i.e. Rs. 280. Ms. Nadia Bibi was made in-charge of accounting and managing overall.
3. Conclusion. All involved are excited. Almost all have paid their subs. May Dean or some one senior finds time to attend and reinforce the learning youth. This time from mistakes.
