I look forward to hearing about your techniques! I really think we can’t underestimate the first you listed: “Creating a collaborative classroom in which students want to help each other.” Often, the teacher doesn’t have the time or capacity to meaningfully reach every student in the class in a period, especially if she/he has over 25–30 students in a class. Classroom environments can absolutely be structured in a way in which students help each other and learn from each other. It also frees students to take risks without fear of embarrassment, which is the foundation for learning.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
