STEP 3: RANDOMIZE AND ROTATE WHEN CALLING ON STUDENTS

The goal is to have everyone involved in discussions so that we can assess all students' understanding of concepts, not just those students who enjoy participating.

Phrases to avoid:


  • "Who can tell me...?"
  • "Let's see who knows...?"
  • "Does anyone know...?"
  • "Can someone tell the class...?"

SOME RANDOMIZING AND ROTATING IDEAS:


STEP 4: USE TOTAL RESPONSE SIGNALS

Response signals are cues students use to indicate that they are ready to respond.

Response signals allow students to prepare for oral or written participation.


Total: All

Response: Every student makes a choice

Signal: Give a response with a signal
