A new property prof writes:
My class is an hour and forty minutes twice a week. While this is good for me (only two times rather than three per week), I know that I need some good ideas for keeping students engaged for that length of time. I know I can break them into small groups, hand out problems, etc., but I was also thinking about film clips or other sorts of media to break up the standard class. Do you or any of your colleagues do this? Any other advice for keeping a long class lively?
I sometimes use small group discussions to break up a long class, but not as much as I could. Any thoughts? I'd imagine that Brophy, being a rock star and all, is the master of this kind of thing.
