This article relates the initiation of one teacher’s idea called ‘A Brown Bag Friday Seminar’ in which student brought a brown bag lunch on Fridays and the teacher arranged the chairs in a circle. Students were given an article from a newspaper or journal and both students and teacher would participate in an informal discussion about the topic in the article. This is a neat idea to encourage students and to bond with your students.

This teacher used Fridays to create an informal discussion session about current events in his classroom. He picked a topic related to the course he taught and explained the guidelines to the students. After the discussion a blog was set up for students to add comments. After reflecting over a year’s worth of Fridays, the author decided to reduce this event to every other Friday to revive the freshness of the format. This is an interesting new idea.
