Class size is a bit small for a real classroom. I am teaching classes of 30+.

I love how you have to do the sentence starters EVEN in high school. I teach elementary, which goes to show you that the kids still need us because they don't and won't just do these things naturally. I sub in the HS foreign language classes and when I tell them to partner up and ''go'' do a task... they just look at me like a deer in the headlights. So then I have to sit them down and really walk them, step by step, through the activity. They're just children in bigger bodies. :)

I love Barbara's idea of a companion video for student viewing. Also, will transcripts of the Teacher Cut videos be available?
