In big groups, you’ll get a good balance of personalities. Some people will be more extroverted, or funny, or fun-loving, and they can bring everyone else along. However, small groups can be either really quiet, really loud, really chaotic, or anything in-between.

Mini-lessons can be taught individually, in a small-group setting, or to a whole classroom.
