Classes with enrollment over thirt-five or forty students bring a new set of challenges. Anonymity creeps in, disengagement seems to increase by contagion, and the workload can deter feedback and weekly homework. What happens when the numbers go up and the attention goes down? What can be done to engage students despite limits in seating and room design?  What are the essentials for engaging students in thinking, making sense of new concepts, and being active vs. passive learners without overwhelming yourself with never-ending papers? How can class time involve higher level learning?  Ten essentials of large classes will be explored and participants will consider how to reduce opportunities for disengagement and how they might tailor each “essential” to their own course.
