Remain calm when students get stuck on a question to avoid alarming students.

  • If you panic, students will panic. If students panic, that is a very difficult hurdle to overcome.
  • If you only remember one thing to prevent students from panicking it’s this: Slow Down. If both the instructor and the student slow down, panic is much less likely.
  • You can also answer student questions via email and celebrate their successes to help them avoid panic.
