Some students do not like to participate in or contribute to class discussion no matter what. There are many reasons students give teachers the silent treatment. How can instructors and TAs engage such students without alienating them and disrupting the classroom environment? In this workshop, we will discuss challenges posed by quiet students as well as strategies to address them.
