Description of the problem
A very bright student in class often answers your question to the class in only a few seconds, not allowing anyone else to try. It also somewhat causes the discussion to stop early, in many cases, even though she is definitely correct in her answer. I have noticed the students have gotten used to her answering all the time so they often don't even try and they just wait for her to answer for them.
