Student-Centered Teaching in Large Classes with Limited Resources
Renaud, Susan; Tannenbaum, Elizabeth; Stantial, Phillip
English Teaching Forum, v45 n3 p12-17, 34 2007
The authors shares suggestions for instructors who teach large classes (from 50-80 students) with minimal resources. The challenges of managing the classroom, using pair and group work effectively, and working with limited resources are addressed. The authors suggests ways to take attendance quickly, to reduce written work to grade, to start and stop communicative activities, and to keep motivation high when students work at different speeds. Suggestions were tested by action research. Two classrooms are described.
