Can Talking Change Student Behavior?
Chances are that you use verbiage a lot. Did you know that students only hear about 10% of what you say, and they only stay tuned in for about 30 minutes. Don't you think it's time to retire some of the verbal approaches that haven't been working for a while, and replace them with methods that can grab students' attention and hang on to it for more than a mere half hour?
Remember: You are supposed to choose techniques not based on what methods you like to use or want to use. You are supposed to choose based on what works best with students. That truth can put a whole different spin on how you interact.
