Slow Circling

SLOW circling creates space and allows room to add details, and details are what lend interest to any discussion in any language.  As new details arise, room is created for humor to show up in the discussion, as the students provide unexpected cute answers to your questions.  As long as the students know that suggesting cute answers in response to your questions is one of their primary jobs in class, circling will work. The key idea here is that the kids, by supplying cute answers, are trying to guess what the teacher is thinking.
