Have a prepared response for questions you don’t know the answer to, that way students don’t perceive their teachers as the only, or an infallible, source of knowledge.

  • For example, try saying: "That’s a great question. If you figure out the answer, can you help teach it to the rest of the class?"
  • This can also help teachers avoid feeling frustrated, embarrassed, or undermined when they are asked questions they can’t answer.
