- __Class Sessions.__ Class Sessions. My literature sessions consist of brief student presentations, discussion with the entire class, and my own comments. Although I find the lecture format appropriate for very large classes, in smaller ones I prefer to interact more intensively with students. I use class sessions not only to lecture but also to listen to students’ presentations and informal class comments. On the whole, my classes are neither completely informal nor completely formal — they are (I hope) comfortably between those two ends of the spectrum. Here is a breakdown of a typical course’s activities both inside and outside the classroom:

- __Presentation Requirement.__ I ask a few undergraduate students each class to devote prior attention to one of the study questions about an upcoming selection and then to relate their thoughts in class for 3-5 minutes, leaving time for others’ comments and my response. I also ask that they contact me beforehand so we can informally (by email or in person) discuss what issues might be worth addressing or how the question might be expanded if necessary, etc. Each participant will give one or more brief presentations (depending on class size) during the semester. This practice encourages students to take responsibility for each meeting’s success. Wiki visitors can find a presentation instructions page in any of the current course menus under "Requirements / Presentations."
