Wait Time Prompt - Upper Primary
Wait time is defined as the pause between asking the question and soliciting a response. Providing additional wait time after a student response also allows all students to reflect on the response prior to further discussion. Increased wait time results in longer student responses, more appropriate unsolicited responses, more student questions, and increased higher order responses. Increased wait time is an important instructional strategy and is especially beneficial for students who speak English as a second language.
