When your class discussion goes silent

When your class discussion goes silent | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

1 Silence patterns may give clues to interventions that you should try.

2 Not all silences are created equal because some are productive (time for reflection or    time to think about sources of confusion) and others are not.

3 Social anxiety, self-image, and culture are factors in whether or not students verbally    participate in class discussion

4 When teachers answer their own questions (in response to the silence), the students learn to wait (be silent) and allow the teacher to answer future questions.

5 Tthere are multiple wait times to consider when posing questions for student discussions (one wait time is the time period between the question and the response, another wait time is the time period after the student response and the teacher’s reaction).
