    I would say that the one thing I am most struggling with in my teaching is "keeping the entire class engaged and accountable during individual presentations." I am teaching 100% Remotely, and I have no way of knowing if students are really listening to me or to their classmates when they are presenting. I have students who I have never met, nor heard from verbally. Most of my students are willing to chat or e-mail, but not all are willing to talk. I think for some that there may be other things happening in the background that they don't want to share, and my school doesn't require this, or for the camera to be on- a few students have recently started to do more verbal participation as I really feel like I'm still just gaining their trust.
