Listening in Class

So I thought about the recent activity we did in class with the listening. So I sat in one of my classes, and just tried to listen like I would, and realized all I did was sit there. Sometimes I would look down to see what she was talking about. And one of the main things I found was that the professor doesn't usually sit in one spot, he/she walks through the room.

Blaine, I had the same experience, Tuesday and Wednesday for a few brief moments I noticed how my other classes were "listening." I think that we did an alright job in class, but the actual class setting was cool to see. It was different than what we showed in acting class. In the other classes the students didn't try to persuade any one what we were doing. It seems very natural, and many students although they may have been listening seemed disinterested. In acting class I know we are focusing on being trying to keep the situation of listening natural, but with an audience it just doesn’t seem to be the same.
