How do you deal with the quiet students in regards to answering questions during whole group. I have tried calling on students who do not have their hands up(because its always the same ones who have theirs up and the same ones with their hands down) I have pulled sticks to give everyone a turn. BUT sometimes I feel horrible when I pull on of my ESOL students or students who are shy. I know sometimes they may not know the answer or do not have the language to express the answer or are too afraid to open their mouths and contribute. I make sure my classroom is a positive atmosphere so students do not need to feel worried if they do not get the answer right or do not know it. I really try to get rid of that embarrassment feeling in my classroom. What do you do?
