I never thought this would be a problem, but my geography class of 13 students is literally comatose. I have 3 students that will talk during our lecture/discussion times and they usually dominate the discussion. This is because every time I call on one of the quieter students, they won't talk. If they do, it's a meek couple of words. I'm not that frightening or intimidating of a person, and I don't see how they can still be shocked or scared two months into the school year. I really don't know what to do. They give me that blank look on their faces like I'm from Mars. I'm convinced that if I do headstands or jumping jacks it couldn't spark any life in this group. I'm going to try a short game tomorrow and see if that breaks the ice, but I'm not too hopeful about it. Thoughts?
