A teaching tip for letting students choose

Letting your students choose is another way to encourage student involvement. Often when teaching there will be turn taking. Whether you're reading, asking questions or whatever it's a good idea to let your students choose.

This encourages interaction between the students and will help break up the monotony of you always being the one to call on a new student to read or answer. For example, let's say "Joe" just read and now we want someone else to read. So we will ask "Joe" to pick the next person to read. For "Joe" this will be fun since he now has the power to choose. This teaching tip will help lighten up your lessons.
