History and Government: How does a teacher deal with wrong answers from students?

CHAPTER TWO

2c v). Explain how a teacher deals with wrong answers from students?

Use the following approach to deal with wrong answers from the learners:

  • If the purpose of the question was the recall of factual material, the teacher may use another student to answer the question.
  • If the question asked calls for a judgment or decision, the teacher may rephrase the question, This may take the form of a series of linked questions to guide the learner to the correct answer
  • If an answer is partly right and partly wrong, separate the two portions, and leave no doubt which is correct.
  • Do not force the learners to accept an answer that they believe to be incorrect.
