Participation, with Josh Kupetz

Listen here!

Class participation is an important part of most classrooms, but it’s often hard to quantify and define: to translate it into a percentage of a course grade, to explain to students why it matters. Josh Kupetz has thought a lot about participation and can shed new light about how you think about it in your own classroom. Have a look at Josh’s participation and attendance policies, as outlined on his syllabus. If you’re interested other novel, outside-the-box approaches to participation, as well as the philosophies that have shaped our ideas about what classroom participation is and should be, you may be interested in The Rhetoric of Participation: Interrogating Commonplaces in and beyond the Classroom, edited by Banaji et al.
