Classroom interactions self-evaluation

Inclusive teaching for IOP RESOURCES

Research by the Institute of Physics suggests that boys tend to dominate in the classroom, answering more questions and getting more of the teacher’s attention, usually without the teacher being aware of any imbalance. This template will help you to assess your own practice. If you are comfortable doing so, you may find it useful to invite a colleague or student to complete the template for you during a lesson.
