About this Course
The stakes are high when an instructor responds to a student answer that is wrong or just not very good. What a teacher says to a student will influence future class participation and discussions. To increase the chances of student participation, it helps to have a repertoire of strategies to employ. We introduce you to 13 possible strategies and responses that you can use when a student has provided an answer that is wrong or not very good.
