Please, I need you to participate…

I was observing some classes this week and wondering why some students

feel safe enough to share more than they should

and

why other students sit quietly in the back.

I know the quiet ones have so much depth and important things to say. But, how do we get them to open up?

These are some of the ways I have noticed students more willing to participate in class.

  2. Great to see so many practical ways of engaging students. Useful to remind teachers of the ‘how’ behind the reasons.
    You can boil all of these down to:
    Belonging
    Freedom
    Fun
    Power (being heard)

  8. You meant to say, “Teachers, be still to let the students speak.” or maybe “Teachers, be still and let the students speak.” Either one work work.
