First response The Golden 30 seconds
First of all, I have to compliment you for a wonderful query. Really reflects your critical thinking skills and analytical bent of mind.
Is it a valid query? Are you sure you gave some thought to the matter or just asked for the sake of asking.
There are ways to respond to a question positively, constructively. Or the teacher can choose to react sharply.
We at Sapphire International School Ranchi have trained ourselves to respect the worth of a query put by students.
It costs nothing to say what is appropriate to boost the self esteem of students. Even if we feel the query or the answer given in class is not up to the mark, we put it mildly, taking care not to offend the sensibilities of tender minds.
If we tick off a particular student for asking a query, there can be long term consequences. The student may withdraw into their shell.
Contrarily, if we shower praise on a child, it stays with him/her for ages.
In both cases, our words are powerful weapons and we never lose sight of that crucial fact.
