Reflecting on the required video, Stages of Language Development, ponder the “wait time” used by the teacher in the video. Address the following questions in your journal:
- Do you believe she provided enough wait time for students?
- How do you personally react to wait time, either when you were in school or in the workplace?
- Does the increased anxiety help or hinder your learning?
- How do you feel about the questions she asked?
- Were they at the appropriate level?
- What suggestions might you give this teacher regarding her questioning?
