ENLI Day 2

Over 200 students. One Class, one big room. 1-2 teachers. That's a great deal to overcome! A foreign-looking guy approached the microphone and noted "crowd control" as the need of the moment! It's not exactly surprising that the students just sort of sit there, staring at the speaking teacher. It's likely to take them some time before they get their learning powers really circulating. Amazing response to ENLI, but I'm not sure how the problem of "quality instruction" can be immediately addressed here. I'm used to the academe, but I've yet to see a class that allows 200+ students to get in and really gain! Maybe this one will be different. After all, God is a God of the possible.

Humor unifies and keeps the attention of a group. Jesus taught in those times in a way that people listened. We must do the same but the methos we use will be different now since the times are different. Entertain while you educate! Humor increases learning!
