Getting Students to Speak Up
Ever have that problem with a new class - especially beginners - where the students mumble or whisper and wont speak up.? A nice non threatening way I've found of encouraging them is by using the board eraser as if it was a TV controller/commander. IE pressing the button to increase the volume. It invariably inokes the right response and encourages other students to do likewise, where they may not feel like making a spoken request. Helps break the ice too!
