How do I get talkative students to include others in discussions?
Talkative students are often a very good resource - especially if they are very knowledgeable in the subject. Try to involve them in creating an easy-going atmosphere where questions are welcomed and where you share ideas and explain for each other. One way of doing this is to assign the talkative student as a co SI-PASS Leader with the task of involving others and asking questions. You can also group talkative students and more silent students in different groups to better allow everybody to share their ideas and thoughts. In general, grouping the students in small groups will allow more students to be active in discussions and collaboration.
