Teach Like a Champion - Part 4 (Reading Together)

This chapter is all about how to get your students involved.

- Cold Call
Call on students regardless of whether they have raised their hands or not. Make sure you don't use this as a "gotcha" technique, but rather call on all students at random.

- Call and Response
You ask a question and the entire class responds. Make sure that everyone participates.

- Pepper
You ask questions quickly, bouncing constantly between yourself and the students. This is best used to review material.

- Wait Time
Delay between asking the question and calling on someone to answer. This gives your students the ability to think about the question first.

- Everybody Writes
Have students write down their answers before you call on them.

- Vegas
Use something flashy and short to engage your students in the material.

Now to you: What stood out to you in this chapter?
