Chapter 6 - Teacher as Designer

Last but not least, the fun stuff!  Teacher as designer is a pose I can already see myself growing into.  I am constantly taking notes of classroom set-up ideas and decorations that can make a classroom feel more like home.

My favorite example in the chapter was about the students who turned first their library and then their empty warehouse-like space into engaging, comfortable, and safe classroom spaces.  It is inspiring to see examples of teachers making the best of what are not so uncommon situations teachers face across the country.

Things I would like to implement in my classroom next school year after reading this chapter are, student art work and quotes, comfortable sitting spaces, music, and snacks.

Please share how you have implemented the teacher as designer pose in your classroom because I would love some more ideas!
