I think that although it stop the flow, stopping at times can help. If
students are confussed or do not see connections they shut down. If you
stop at stratgeic places and ask questions and make connections to their
lives they are more likly to respond. I taught "The American Crisis"
the other day, and it wasn't until I explain that they use persuasion
when they ask for things, that they "got it." And of course connections
to the Revolutionary period are easier to make now than they would have
been a month ago.
