Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Avoiding Plagiarism and Citing Sources - Section 3: Explore


During this lesson there are several opportunities to get students to continue thinking. As the students share their ideas, I try to remain in a facilitator role, encouraging students to continue the discussion without looking at me to deem their answers as "correct or incorrect". I do this because once students hear that magical word, the rest of the class stops their thinking. Telling one student that he/she is correct seems to stop the discussion in its tracks, and appears to relieve the rest of the class from participating. Instead, try using phrases that keep things going ("What do you think about that?, What can you add?, etc.). This questioning strategy also motivates the students to listen to each other as they know that they might just be called on to participate. Watch how the questioning is stretched instead of stopped.
