Does the thought of raising your hand to ask a question or share an opinion in class intimidate you? Or do you feel like you're not invested in the subjects enough to become an active student in the classroom? Whatever the case may be, avoiding class participation can affect your grade and your learning process. To make sure you don't miss out, continue reading to learn to improve your class participation.

How to Improve Your Class Participation

  1. First of all, you need to do your homework, read the lectures, and try to understand your subjects. This will help you prepare for class and be more aware of what your peers and teachers are talking about.
  2. If you feel anxious about participating in class, remember that you are a capable human being. Try your best to relax and let go of the fear of being judged. To that end, do breathing exercises and realize that everyone is allowed to make mistakes.
  3. To have an efficient and enriching class discussion, there needs to be respect. You need to raise your hand, wait for your turn to speak, and avoid yelling, laughing at others and engaging in disruptive behavior.
  4. Speaking of respect, you must listen to what the other parties are saying. Not only will this help you acknowledge their opinions (which helps create an encouraging environment), but it will also ensure you add to the existing conversation effectively.
  5. If you're feeling shy about participating in class, ask and answer questions. This is an easy way to start breaking out of your shell and getting more comfortable speaking up in the classroom.
  6. Lastly, try sharing your opinion. One of the best things about class discussions is that they give voice to different perspectives, interpretations, and thoughts, which can make learning much more fun and enriching. Just remember to share respectful opinions.
