class 1 was alright, the bigger class 2 was just horrible. how shall i be a good teacher if all circumstances are working against me? the room, the technical equipment, and an oversized class. there is just no fresh air after five minutes, and if we open the windows half of them freeze. it is late in the afternoon. some arrive late form other classes. some have to leave early for other classes. not everybody has a chair. and to be honest are neither the content nor i charismatic enough to catch 90 minutes attention of every single of the 60 students. after all, this is an intro class, and a requirement. and it is not a lecture. they have to work in groups. oy. and i want this to be a fruitful class they enjoy to attend. how shall we survive this class?
