This learning environment, to me, was great. I know most of this instruction relies on discussion and participation, it was rely easy to see who read and who didn't. i know some ppl want to say that they are shy, or need more time to answer the questions, some ppl just didn't read. The other that needed more time to respond, or were shy, or cautious, he game them ample time and space to respond when ready or informed.
Everyone felt that their ideas were welcome in the class.
McKain creates a very welcoming environment in his classroom.
Very easy-going and makes it fun to learn, soooooo yeah
All students are brought into the discussion and he is able to use any response to continue the socratic method of teaching he uses.
If you can't laugh at yourself or your classmates, you can sure as Hell laugh at the instructor!
This is the only discussion based class I've ever been in that managed to get every single student to contribute meaningfully
I felt very comfortable giving my opinion in class and that everyone stood on equal ground.
Unreal way of teaching. Love the style. Continuously got me engaged in the class.
He is really good at asking for everybody's opinions. It isn't intimidating to participate in class at all. He makes it really fun and inviting for everyone.
