I am teaching an art appreciation class to high schoolers. Today I led the
kids in our first discussion. We had played the token response game and we
were talking about which art works got the most of certain kinds of tokens.
We had a pretty good discussion except of course only about 5 to 6 kids were
participating out of a class of 20. I tried to elicit responses out of some
of the other kids only to get responses like I don't know, even to the
simpliest questions. Do any of my fellow art teacher collegues out there have
any suggestions for getting more kids involved in discussions? How do you
draw out the shy and reluctant students? Also have any of you played the
Token Response game with kids before? I'd love to hear how it went with your
students. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
