oh dear! That does sound painful! How many students are there in the "tiny" class? The largest classes I teach have between 18-20 students. 18 is the official limit for language classes at our university, but sometimes I am able to squeeze in a few more. Last week I had a day of some panic... as in feeling that I really am not doing a good job and kind of "forgot how to teach" -- I'm hoping it was a passing thing, the result of the "reckoning" that comes right before a major exam (the first in the semester). Good to hear about your teaching in more detail! I love the idea of the reading/performing and how that turned that class period around completely!

L, my two sections of the senior class are seven students per section -- crazy! Normally they'd have been put together into a single 14-person class, which would have been fine, but the two sections started out bigger, such that it made sense to have two different sections.
