When a student has trouble answering a question, that is the time for “Cues and Clues.” The teacher does not give the right answer, but instead gives some tips, information, or prompting to help the student find the right answer. There are two types: visual and auditory. Some examples of visual cues and clues are: facial expressions, hand gestures, pictures, or objects. Auditory cues and clues are things like telling the student some information, or saying the first sound of a word that will help them find the correct answer. So remember, when a student has difficulty with a question, the teacher can use Cues and Clues that are visual or auditory. By helping the student find the answer, this method builds their confidence.
