Abstract

This article explains a teaching technique to manage classroom discussion that balances student participation with course coverage goals through student self-regulation. Before they ask a question in class students are required to consider whether 30% or more of their classmates would be interested in the answer. If not, they should ask the question outside of class.

Keywords: law teaching, student participation, class discussion, class management
