'''Comments''': Sadker article cited in this entry may be iffy since only summaries and review of research were available online; the article is well-received however and cited multiple times throughout literature online. The issue of wait time is well-researched across ages and disciplines [see additional resources below]. Simply counting "one Mississippi, two Mississippi..." after posing a question seems to be a very practical and accessible (yet still unknown) teaching practice for professors.
