Creative, Talkative Students

I actually hate telling students they can’t talk in class…especially if they are trying to clarify something they don’t understand with another student.

This post reminds me that disruptive behavior isn’t always related to bad qualities, but may also be a sign of creative impulse!

In my classes, since  most students don’t speak English natively, many of them need complete silence from their fellow students to be able to concentrate and understand.

But I wish that wasn’t the case. I’d prefer to let them multitask, listening to the lecture while also engaging with their classmates. It doesn’t bother me when they talk, as much as I think it bothers the other students.
