Class participation may occur in a number of ways – through in-class questioning; individual and group activities, and even online participation. The teacher may pose questions, most commonly relating to a reading students have been asked to read in preparation for an open discussion, but their main role will be to facilitate the discussion between the students. The teacher might pose questions, calling students at random to provide their answers. Students could also be tasked to work in small groups to provide a solution to problems or scenarios posed by the teacher. This solution could then be presented to the whole class who then respond with questions. Students may even participate online using some of the techniques above.
