Have you ever finished a sentence for a student or interrupted a student when she/he was speaking?
Have you ever asked the class a question, and a few seconds later answered it yourself?
The presenter will address these questions as he explores the notions of Teacher Talk Time and Teacher Wait Time. This webinar will also make participants (humorously) aware of some unfortunate teacher presentation habits. The session will counter some of these bad habits with practical tips for speaking in front of groups, whether in your regular class or at a conference. In addition, the presenter will discuss and offer brief advice about conducting student presentations. Teachers will be encouraged to take action to improve their talk time behavior and presentation styles.
