I have 35 students—this might make it tough to have a seminar. I’m worried that some people will take the opportunity to slip into the background, or worse, that no one (rather than everyone) will feel responsible for carrying the conversation and unfolding the text. I’ll have to make the material enticing (easy enough) and put on the pressure.
Update: And I have no media in my classroom. I had some interactive powerpoint lectures planned… now it looks like it will be me with my back to the class as I write on the dusty chalkboard, asking for answers from students with pre-assigned numbers.
