Have you ever wondered how you can get those quiet students who avoid eye contact to participate more in class? Or perhaps you'd like all of your students to be more engaged and share some of your enthusiasm for the topics you cover. In this webinar, join David Faure as he explores a few simple strategies and tricks to get everyone out of their seats and involved in their lessons. Some of the ideas involve "group work," while others are whole class activities or even games. You don't need any fancy equipment, but a little courage to try something new is essential. Your colleagues might ask what you were up to, but students will be talking about your lessons all the way home! While David will use examples from his high school biology classes, the tips and strategies could be useful across curriculum.

I love the idea of getting the shy students involved in class work. I have always struggled with the over eager students enthusiasm out shining the shy students.

As a biology teacher, I was disappointed in this webinar. I was hoping to take something new away for this. I could adapt the diagnostic questions to something.
