I have often tried to describe what I like to call “a good class.” It happens periodically, though never consistently, because talk takes an unpredictable course. You nurture a class with interesting, well-presented material, then hope it will spark talk from the students, infusing the material with new life and extending it into new areas. When a class is bored or over-tired (whole classes can be fatigued for reasons that have nothing to do with lack of sleep), talk grinds to a halt. But when a class is relaxed and engaged, talk gushes; it is animated by laughter and woven through with feeling; it carries the class to a place that is both delightful and powerful.
