No Hands Up
We use a no hands up approach to discussion and questioning in class. The research shows that when putting hands up children who perhaps need challenge, questioning and help don't put their hands up because they don't know the answer whereas those children who do know can dominate the learning experience. We encourage teachers to use a range of strategies to encourage lots of different responses from lots of different learners. You can download a teachers and parents guide to our strategies here.
