New instructors are often unsure how much they should be talking or what they should be saying in their classes. They ask:

  • How do I know if I’m talking too much?
  • How much silence is acceptable?
  • Am I talking too much?
  • Am I saying the right things?

If you find yourself asking such questions, then let me ask you a question—why are you talking?
