Importance of Class Participation



Study abroad means starting a whole new life as an international student. Students try to adapt to new surroundings, new teaching and new studying methods, new classmates, new environment, new people can become ominous until students don't get to socialize with other people. Most of the time people get socialize in classrooms or on campus, so make good use of it. 

Active classroom participation is an important way of adapting to the new lifestyle. Communicating in class, students learn to express their points of view and ideas to the other students in a way that they can understand. When a student asks questions, they learn to obtain information to intensify their knowledge. Some people are introverts by nature while some lack confidence to speak to people that easily, so speaking in class can be a struggle for many students. This struggle might be explicit in the classroom in many ways like not answering questions, not volunteering to any activity, not asking help from anyone and not even talking to in class at all. There are many ways to support active participation in the class, here are some. 


·     Self-Confidence:

Many students get nervous to speak in front of a crowd of people. To cover the fear, students need to push themselves and learn to speak in class. 

While participating actively in the class, will help students to build their confidence make them comfortable to speak in front of the major crowd. Having the quality to speak in front of people is important in the real world. 

Confidence is an important accessory in human life and one should wear it. 


·     Increase attention

Students need to interact with the professor and other classmates because listening to one long lecture can make a person lose interest. While interacting with the professor and the classmate will help the environment of the class be active. Asking questions, clearing doubts, debating on topics will not make the class environment unexcited and help students focus on the lectures, therefore it will help them to increase their attention. 


·     Engagement 

While interacting and clearing doubts with the students helps them engaging. Asking questions to the students or raising questions by the students will let other students think about the possible answers, doing dots and come up with tons of solutions. This leads to the analytical skill and the development of thinking in students. Thus class participation will help all the students engaging and help them know each other better. 


·     Put Forth Opinions

While participating in class helps students to keep up with the topics that are being discussed. When students start paying attention in the class naturally they start thinking and analyzing the subjects and they start putting their thoughts into it. When the student's thoughts are different from the professor or any classmates, the student feels that their thoughts need to be expressed at that time they can openly put forth their opinions. In this competitive world, having our own opinion is necessary to survive. Class participation helps students to fearlessly express opinions. 


·     Ideas.

From raising the question to expressing opinions with other classmates generate various ideas. These talks help students to understand how different individual thinks. It also helps them in exchanging interesting knowledge, facts and information that will help them in the future.
