It is significant that often they accuse me of glorifying their ‘response system’ by calling it decision-making. Only occasionally, at key points in the lesson, do they feel they are actively and consciously making decisions. But is this true of student teachers as well? It would seem that a beginner must be forced into making decisions more frequently simply because he has not yet had time for his routines to get established. But is this true? And many more questions... I hope then that this brief paper, written in a highly personal way, conveys the flavour, if not all the detail, of the research I am engaged in.
Or take another, possibly simpler, incident. You ask a child a question, she doesn’t answer. Do you persist with her or do you ask someone else? If the latter, whom do you ask? Five children have their hands up, the rest have them down. Four boys at the back aren’t even paying attention. Who do you ask? How do you ask? Perhaps it would be better (easier) to give the answer yourself. But how will you know if they understand? Perhaps that child does know the answer but she’s just too frightened to answer publicly in case its wrong.
