“Teachers are not Teasers but Brain-Teasers” - Professor M.S.Rao
“The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be ignited.” - Plutarch
Students sometimes feel that teachers are teasing them in the classroom by bombarding them with too many questions. They are often scared of maintaining eye contact with teachers in the classroom. In fact, teachers not only share their knowledge but also enhance the thinking levels of the students. In order to enhance students’ critical thinking levels, teachers adopt various tools and techniques, and of which questioning is one of them. Teachers question the students with both open ended and close ended questions to grab their attention, and to ensure effective teaching takeaways among the students. Hence, teachers are not teasers but are brain teasers. Depending on their experience, mindset, classroom ambience, and the profile of the students they probe students with several questions in the classroom. Hence, be comfortable with their questioning, view them positively, and participate effectively in the classroom to acquire and apply knowledge in your real life.
