I am a sixth form History tutor in my hometown. I teach 17 to 19 year old students (Year 12 & Year 13) but my main problem is that most students I have are usually very quiet and unwilling to partake in discussions or even answering questions directed to the whole class. It's rare for them to volunteer themselves. The environment in my hometown somehow have created a generation of quiet and shy students. I also have to note that some of them (based on the student feedback I got from them) did not like to be put in group tasks too. How do I encourage them to open up and participate in class discussions? Also how do I encourage them to break out of their shells and nurture sportsmanship in students who dislike to work in groups?
