Defiance: A Classroom Tale

It’s been a while since I’ve seen the look. As instructors, we’ve seen it many times. We’ve probably seen it by multiple students in one session. The “You’re wrong” look. The look of defiance. The look that often indicates that the student has shut down. They aren’t going to participate anymore, or worse, they’re done learning because the student is unwilling or fearful to tell the instructor that they think they’re wrong.

Only a slight exaggeration.

How do you deal with students who check out after they appear to no longer trust your expertise?
