I take a student-centered approach to teaching. I call students by name and individually invite them to contribute to the conversation. If I notice that someone is losing interest in the debate, I reach out to them. If one or two students start to monopolize the debate, I invite others to share their views. If someone’s assertion goes unchallenged, I give students reasons to challenge it. If someone's view is criticized, I give them the opportunity to address those criticisms. If someone says something that relates back to what someone else said, I point that out and give one student the opportunity to respond to the other. In sum, I try to ensure that in-class discussions are fair and that every student feels comfortable contributing to them.
