  4. I’m going to do class a little differently today. I’m going to break it into “lecture” and “question” times. During lecture time, if students have questions, they can type them into the Zoom chat box, and I will do my best to answer them. However, students won’t be able to ask audio questions at this time, because I’m going to hit the “mute all” button when I lecture. I will stop lecturing at regular intervals, to take audio questions from the class.
