Hi Jess and everybody--

Jess wrote, " I went to a fairly liberal and progressive school from grade 4 to 12. My experience with the Adult run situation was that in middle school, and high school, though the teaching format was still mostly lecture based, I had more and more classes that sat in a circle, and more and more classes where disscussion was considered important. "

I wonder can a lecture be collaborative (and not adult-run)? If so, can you describe it?
