Analysis of Classroom Silence and Countermeasures Based on Constructivism Learning Theory

  1. Introduction
    1. Research background

The reform of collage English curriculum, which began in the early 21st century, demands a big change to cater to modern education requirements. Rather than continuing the teaching mode of the single “speech”, English teachers need to change their teaching modes to a cooperative style, which emphasizes the leading role of students in the classroom learning (Yang, 2006). This requires students to actively participate in the process of activities in the classroom between teachers and students. The main manifestation of students’ participation in the classroom teaching activities is to “say”, which means classroom questioning. Classroom questioning are an important means of teacher-student interaction. And asking questions during the class is one of the most important activities in classroom teaching, helping to achieve a variety of classroom teaching purposes. Practice shows that a good classroom question can arouse students' learning motivation and help students to learn and think better. At the same time, it also provides students with opportunities for drills and demonstrations so that teachers can better understand the students' mastery of what they have learned in class. (Shu amp; Zhuang, 1996) However, in many classrooms, after the teacher sends out the question information, the student always shows a long time "speechless state", which to some extent is due to the poor reception of the information, the deviation of the information comprehension, the difficulty or the judgment based on the existing information. The phenomenon is called "classroom silence. Many teachers find it difficult for students to express their own opinions and their understanding of the problems. It is well-acknowledged that many students are lack of initiative in the face of problems, even if they know the answer to the question. Thus teachers always complain about students’ silence in the classroom, since every time they put forward a question, the students always keep mute as if their mouths were sealed, which puts teachers and students in an awkward position.

At present, the phenomenon of collage English silence in our country reflects the time-consuming and inefficiencies of the teaching mode, which leads to the poor oral English ability as well as the stagnant communication ability of students (Gao, 2008). Therefore, in order to put forward some solving methods regarding these problems, many researchers delve into this phenomenon and try to find out the basic reason.
