I think that a combination of jumping into the conversation and raising your hand when you want to speak is a good method to running the class. I also enjoy calling on others that want to speak because it gives Jody and Anne a break from facilitating the conversation. I also like how we allow each other's questions to drive the conversation because it doesn't seem like the direction of the conversation was planned, everything flows nicely. Breaking off into smaller groups and then coming into a larger group discussion is effective as well
