Question:
My students love group work, but as a teacher I am not satisfied with how it works. Shy students practically don’t participate in the discussion while the extrovert students talk all the time. How can I stimulate the shy students to participate more?

Answer:
Our consultant – Majda Knezic Fratarcangeli – answered:
Try the following: give each student 3 chips (fichas). Every time they speak, they have to give up a chip. When a student has used all the chips, he (she) cannot speak again until everyone else has used all their chips. Finally, everyone starts again with three chips. In this way no one dominates and no one remains silent.
