2. What did Neil Postman mean when he said: “Children go to school as questions marks and leave school as periods”? Does this have something to do with a teacher’s questioning and reacting techniques?Weegy:
Children enter school as question marks and leave as periods.) In other cases they do this because they do not know how to ask certain kinds of questions. [ In any event, a simple translation of their declarative utterances will sometimes produce a great variety of deeply felt questions.

What do I resolve to do and NOT do in my questioning and reacting techniques so as to encourage teacher-student interactions?Note:
Teacher-student relationships provide an essential foundation for effective classroom management?and classroom management is a key to high student achievement. [ Teacher-student relationships should not be left to chance or dictated by the personalities of those involved. Instead, by using strategies supported by research, teachers can influence the dynamics of their classrooms and build strong teacher-student relationships that will support student learning. ?From the first day, demonstrate and talk about your own enthusiasm for the course material, and how it helps you personally. Look for ways to connect the material to the lives of your students. Use current event articles, editorials from local newspapers, or examples from your own life that illustrate your points. Solicit these examples from your students.
?Create a "need to know." As you are preparing your lesson plans, ask yourself - why would a student need to know this? This helps you think about material in terms of its relevance to students' lives.
2. How do you deal with apathetic students?
?Try to build a personal relationship with these students, and take an interest in them to find out what is at the bottom of the "perceived apathy." Learning students' names and using names in class can help students understand that you are interested in them and in their success in your course. Consider e-mailing a student who seems disinterested or unresponsive and let him/her know that you would like to help them in any way that you can. Oftentimes their apparent apathy has nothing to do with the course. There may be personal matters that are dominating their attention. Some students are going through a period of depression which disconnects them from their studies. Showing a little concern can be very helpful.
3. How do you get my students to prepare for class?
?Give students some kind of assignment. They often need this structure. They also need accountability. Make sure the assignment is not just busy work. Design it to be relevant and use whatever the students have prepared directly in class. ] Auto answered|Score 1|jen_asuncion|Points 145|Note:
