Rethinking classroom participation: listening to silent voices
In education, participation is most often defined as verbal responses that fit into the routine or classroom discourse established by the teacher. So it is no surprise that teachers tend to have limited understandings about how to interpret and use silences. In her new book, Katherine Schultz examines the complex role student silence can play in teaching and learning. Urging teachers to listen to student silence in new ways, this book offers real-life examples and proven strategies for "rethinking classroom participation" to include all students-those eager to raise their hands to speak and those who may answer in different ways.
