Top Teaching Tip: Wait Time

6th July, 2016

By Scott W


When you ask a question, make sure that you don't use a pupil's name at the start. For example, 'Faye, why do you think the chose to use that material?'


When you use one student's name, as sad as it is, many of the other children in the group will stop thinking and, therefore, stop learning. 


Instead, ask the question, wait, and then ask a specific child for an answer. That way, all of the children will be engaged and you'll get much more learning accomplished from the same question.

You're also more likely to get a better follow-up discussion going!
