There are many reasons why students may avoid active participation in the classroom. Often students want to offer up answers in class but they are reluctant to for a number of reasons: they are reluctant to take ‘intellectual risks’; they prefer to ‘opt out’when they are unsure or uncomfortable; they are unwilling to answer questions or engage in discussions due to fear of being wrong (or right) too often; perfectionism or a lack of confidence.
Additionally, how do you determine the collective thinking and learning of an entire class when some students rarely respond?
The social nature of learning is very much recognised and embedded in TLAC techniques and the program aims to deliberately design classrooms to ensure the most supportive culture for young people.
There are few techniques that can transform a learning environment for the better as quickly as Cold Call. In addition to learning this technique in detail with video demonstrations and practice sessions, many other techniques are explored and connected to pedagogical practice based on the work of John Hattie and Dylan Wiliam.
* Teach Like a Champion: Cold Call Plug n Play Licence:
Each school that has not already purchased the Teach Like a Champion Cold Call Plug n Play licence will need to purchase this at the cost of $825.00, on top of the registration cost. This will be invoiced to the assigned participant for the school (each school only requires 1 licence for multiple participants). Please note that schools will require this licence in order for staff to participate in this workshop. Schools who already have this licence are not required to purchase it again.
“I’m excited about the changes these techniques brought to my classroom! This is what you’ve been looking for if you want practical and SPECIFIC things to actually do in your class.”
