Participation is an integral part of classwork. When I am charting participation I inform the class at the beginning. There are many ways to get a check mark next to your name for the class. If we are reading passages a student can volunteer to read. They can also answer questions about the current instruction or when there are review questions. Also, adding information to someone else's answer is another way. As the class progresses, I specifically say I am looking for so many more to show active participation and look at them directly to see if their hand is raised. Sometimes I will carry over the charting to a second day. Some days I do not use this method. In any case, the students are fully informed and they know the options. Calling out answers are unacceptable and are not counted toward appropriate participation.
