I came across a useful video clip on the ‘Teach like a Champion’ blog. The clip is entitled ‘A Masterful No Opt Out by Denarius Frazier.’ It is a recording of a teacher using the ‘No Opt Out’ questioning technique very effectively. It might be an idea for teachers to try and use this technique as a form of ‘deliberate practice’ within lessons. Me and a few other teachers from Psychology, Philosophy and Law adopted this technique in lessons last year, and I believe that it is a valuable tool to add to questioning techniques, if you don’t use it already.
Should you wish to read the article and watch the video clip, I have included the link below.
