Not necessarily. Here are 8 ways teachers can talk less and get students talking more:. It can be uncomfortable to watch kids struggle to figure out an answer, but they need time and silence to work through it. Resist the urge to talk students through every step of a problem and instead just observe. Similarly, learn to love think time. Is that an effective method—how do you know?

Does anyone use a different strategy? The idea here is to give kids a break from hearing your voice: they are far more likely to tune in to a unique sound than to a 20 word direction. Resist the urge to lecture students every time someone forgets their materials, interrupts your lesson, or makes an inappropriate noise. If you need to have a conversation about the behavior with a student or issue a consequence, try to wait for a break in your instruction rather than stop the whole class from learning while you discipline one.

I found these strategies to be extremely helpful and informative. Thank you again. I really enjoyed learning new ways to keep students engaged. My favorite was…. Please get used to using ALL strategies and give yourself time to work quietly with those who need extra support …. I would also add that getting students to talk more is the result of a mentality. De lessons that are focused on student activity and discovery. Take yourself out of info-delivery mode and put kids into info-acquisition.

Their conversation will drive everything else! Can you give some pointers on getting slow and unmotivated learners into the info-acquisition position? Great post! Thank you. I am an English Department Head, and teach English, grades At the end of your post, you asked for some advice to add.

Practice what it looks like to actively listen to other students. Practice this as a class. Anne, thanks for taking the time to share so much helpful information. I love this point about not repeating what a student says. I tell my students that we all can have a voice in the discussion. We wait for the two students that I have that have speech problems to complete their thoughts.

If they need what they said to be repeated, I do ask their permission to repeat it for them when it is necessary. They are first graders learning to tools to carry on a big discussion. They love it. At the end of the day we take a few minutes to go over what we have learned in our day. So glad you brought that up. Great article. No more hands up, learning or talk partners and paddle pop sticks.

Angela, great article. Than you. Looking for 45 ways to engage the learner who is coming to your class with their own device. It gives you the management tools and structures for doing exactly this, while also building positive social skills and climate. Thank you, Angela. As always, you are spot-on! The days that I spend talking too much wear me out. Most days, I try to zip it, so the kids can work.

This was a refreshing reminder for the beginning of the year. How can I or should I approach this very nice teacher about her expectations of me??? One more? I would ask the teacher! I taught kindergarten for 2 years, and my favorite classroom volunteers and aides were the ones that jumped right in and helped. F wants you to come to the carpet! Some kinder kids may be struggling from lack of sleep let them take a catnap. Others may be acting out for various reasons once I had a second grader tell me her feet were too hot—she took her shoes off at her desk. Ask them a question they are not expecting and then invite them into your activity.

Or have them get a drink of water and come back—they might need the movement. Some students are not ready for what we are trying teach in kindergarten. We as parents, educators, and observers in the room need to speak our concerns. I hope you continue to volunteer and are enjoying your kindergarten experience this year! Well perhaps you might enjoy these 8 ways to get your students to talk more and you talk […]. Reflecting on my 9 years of teaching leaves me with some complicated feelings. I was so nervous about everything the summer before my first year began. This is a wonderful article!

I am currently a substitute teacher, and cover roughly 2ndth grades. I love how these tips are so transferable to the different grade levels! I definitely need to work on talking less, and listening more! I am making my job harder than it needs to be some days, and I feel that a lot of it is attributed to the fact that I talk so much! Thank you again! Great point about making our jobs harder than they have to be. The kids should be doing just as much talking and work as we are, if not more!

This is great information!

I find I get more student talk when I simply ask for and answers followed by a swift why. Student always begin discussions over the why rather than the answer because why gets to the process not the product! Thank you, Angela! I plan to teach my students language right away for questions regarding their physical needs. Those questions often cause my class to lose momentum in our rich discussions.

Thanks, this is a very nice article and I will try to work with all the recommendations.

Unfortunately, in my school there is very little help from the above captains and students have many issues that are going from late arrivals for first period to fix and accommodate attendance records allowing kids to be in school at the second period. Then comes the problem for poor hall transit control from period to period and hall walkers who are bothering by the door constantly and even cutting classes. Students are not suspended and instead are allow to stay in the cafeteria. Teachers in this place are responsible to ing our cell phones struggling behavior students and cutters otherwise we are held able.

Our school is more into data records than allowing teachers to work with students in the classroom where the majority of the students are level 1 in ELA and Math. Our school leaders and the CFN are empowering to teach every subject with writing concentration so the Bulletin Boards look very informative. Students struggle with the administration ideas to use rigorous work and different work without even consider the intellectual ability of the student.

Testing and testing for data records and curriculum completion enforcement produces confusion in the students and in fact more behavior problems. Students in my schools come from lunch hyper and they obey the rule of no bathroom policy after lunch or last period. The use of language is a great tool but it is not enough for a place where teachers are accused formally of corporate punishment if we do not allow students to go to the bathroom with the excuse that supervisor are claiming that the child had a emergency.

Our school is well known for social events and clubs to motivate learning, unluckily these events are happening outside the classroom and our reputation in the media is more noticeable than a flash event including cheating influence during the state test, students fights in a neighborhood store, students beatings in the detention center, and more. Consequences for behavior problems students over there is something that our wonderful leaders avoid to keep school records and reputation clean then teachers are left alone to manage more behavior issues in the class where some students are trow in the classroom at the expectancy that the educators manage the problem keeping records which are more time consuming and less practical.

Most parents help very little and there is no support from administration to teachers who have to take the abuse from students otherwise there are repercussions to the staff. I actively practise 2. Whenever possible I will sit in free seats around the room, often for an entire period and speak to those students around me, whilst addressing the entire class if needed. I teach years so I am not with the same class all day and I feel that doing this helps build a solid rapport with the students.

Thanks again! I just found a really great idea on pinterest that would work well with math, too. You pose the answer on the board and the students write the question. I find it really gives me insight into how deeply the students are thinking, too. Good luck and let me know if you try it! This would also be a great free-writing journal prompt! Answer: XXXX fill in any abstract or concrete nounset a timer, and have students write during the entire time without worrying about correct mechanics.

Their creative insights will astound you! They LOVE making it all about them and the questions are so sweet! Very helpful! As a student teacher, I am trying my best not to give my students all the answers. Thank you Angela, our profession is very difficult, thanks God we love the profession and the kids, so any help is greatly appreciated.

Keep goingnever quit. I went to a training this summer that actually focused LOTS on doing this!! It was so helpful! One key thing they said was to just give specific guidelines for what you want the students to be talking about. Then go write a few things you heard them sharing on the board so they KNOW you were listening for ideas. This encourages the students to stay on topic each time because they want their idea shared!

Excellent list! I would simply nod, shake my head, or hold up one finger in a minute and then keep moving on whatever discussion we were having. One of my favorite ways to talk less, is to have the students discuss with each other any time I ask a question.

Great point, Sonya! I think we have to move away from the mentality that we need to monitor every single student response.
