Vivid Teaching through the Use of Various Types of Interaction
Ohlberger, Stephanie; Wegner, Claas
Teaching Science, v59 n4 p35-38 Dec 2013
Learning takes place mostly through communication. This is why teachers employ different types of interaction in the classroom in order to provide a varied environment for the students. Apart from the commonly used Student-Teacher-Talk or Teacher-Student-Talk, presentations or lectures may offer advantages with regard to the promotion of communicative and methodical competencies. Further techniques for livening up classes are the Answering Chain or the Murmur Phase. This article also presents a student questionnaire which can provide the teacher with handy feedback on the methods of interaction applied during the lesson.
