Handling Difficult Questions and Situations.
Watkins, Karen
Innovation Abstracts, v5 n24 Sep 9 1983
Recommendations are presented for dealing with difficult students and the questions they ask during classroom discussions. Brief ideas are provided for handling argumentative individuals, long-winded questioners, and questions for which the instructor does not have a good answer. A discussion of curved or loaded questions (pseudoquestions) identifies eight types of these questions, examines their effects on communication, and suggests some strategies for handling them. Finally, several techniques of public speakers are described which can be used for dealing with hostile or resistant students. (DC)
