Repeat the question of a child for example, uh, that’s very important. A teacher might also say occasionally, uhm … “Could you turn to D.?” And when a teacher just now and then says “Wait a moment, could you repeat that please?” or “I’ll write it on the blackboard”, it’s remarkable that children subconsiously copy this behaviour”. In that way the teacher provides a natural model. INTRODUCTION Interviews mothers INTERVIEWSRATING SCALECONCLUSIONS
