Asking and answering questions and getting involved in class discussions makes the class more interesting. It also helps keep your mind focused. Many teachers give participation points, so participating can also help you get a better grade. On a scale of 1 – 10, how would you rate your class participation. Circle the number you’ve chosen. (Try not to choose 5.) 1 • • • • 2 • • • • 3 • • • • 4 • • • • 5 • • • • 6 • • • • 7 • • • • 8 • • • • 9 • • • • 10 If you circled 6 – 10, you are engaged in your classes, and you’re probably getting pretty good grades.

I raise my hand often and I share my ideas during discussions. I never raise my hand. If a teacher calls on me I mumble,“I don’t know.” Two students sit next to each other in history class. Tyler has his book open and raises his hand twice to answer questions. Claire left her book in her locker and puts her head down during the discussion. While in groups, Tyler leads the discussion on the Civil War and asks for input from the other group members. Claire doesn’t say a word in her group. She isn’t really sure what the topic is. When class is over Claire hurries into the hall to see her friends. Tyler stays after class to ask the teacher a question about the homework.
