Here are the results from last week's poll! Sorry so late!
I stand with the 15-19 per class group. I've found it difficult in smaller classes to keep discussions going and if a few people are absent suddenly the class is very very small.
The National Writing Program recommends 15 students per composition course (which of course doesn't happen often) and I do think that is ideal. I can provide much more individualized attention and feedback on writing when my courses are smaller.
I truly think that smaller classes is the answer to better student outcomes rather than different standards or more testing. Who's with me?
Thanks for stopping by! Have an idea for a poll? Let me know!
