Ideally, every student has a chance to participate (out loud or otherwise) every class day. Realistically, this rarely occurs. Sometimes it is incredibly challenging to engage particular students. Other times it is hard to get certain students to stop talking!

Questions to consider:
-To what extent is student participation important in your courses?
-How do you engage the more reserved students and “slow down” the more talkative ones?
-What do you do when a class discussion falls flat? Or when the answer to a question you asked is the sound of silence?
-In larger courses, how do you help students feel like active participants each class day?
