Class Dynamics Have Made for a Tough Time
There are times when I have a particularly tough class. Not tough in the sense of unbearable, but difficult to read and to get them engaged.
Today (Wednesday) I did everything I know how to get them to interact. With the exception of early on when I led them into a discussion on the question, "Is perception reality?" this particular group of forty 20-somethings, this group simply refuses to interact. On a scale of 1 to 10, I am probably getting a 2 from them.
It makes my job particularly difficult and I feel exhausted on this second day. Without the interactive feedback, I have nothing left to give, as I give so much of myself.
In seven hours, I have to go at it again for the final day of the workshop. I think this group will be glad to get the hell out of there. I cannot say that I blame them. It's been a painful experience for many of us.
I can only hope that I am reaching some of them.
