I was looking at my blog and I realized that it looked a bit dull. Even when I go to read it in the future, I will like to see more pictures to remind myself of what the heck I was talking about. It's funny; I describe what I am doing or trying to do to people, and I refer people to this blog, but no one really gets it until they step foot in my classroom. Sometimes, not even then.
If you've read the first few blog posts, you'll remember that I took the design idea of the risers from a trip to the Museum of Anthropology.

I liked how the bench idea enclosed the space so that it provided a good arena for discussion. I liked the multi-tiered idea because we don't think of work space in classrooms as dimensional, but planar.
