Clip to ScrapBook #7

-Turn and talk, then pick one student to share from each pair

-Wait time! Let students know that you expect everybody to have an answer and you will give them a minute. Sometimes those quieter students just need more time.

-Popsicle sticks or index cards with student names on them. Flip them over to let the student's know whose turn it is to share.

Jen Jones just did a little video on her facebook that said those students that are always raising their hands are called "hogs" and the other students that just sit there are "logs." The logs get used to just sitting there knowing the hogs will take over. I would change this asap so when you get observed next they are already in the habit of speaking more.

Good luck! I got the same feedback on my most recent observation. So it's on my mind too.
