Jennifer Gonzalez taught middle school language arts before becoming a university professor. She writes the blog “Cult of Pedagogy” about the art of teaching. Check it out!
Before Thanksgiving, she posted a great article called “Classroom Eye Candy: A Flexible-Seating Paradise.” In it, she interviews Rebecca Malmquist, a high school English teacher in Michigan who has rearranged her classroom space in a very unusual way.
The space is not just about the seating; although, the seating is pretty cool. Malmquist is also concerned with lighting, music, and writing surfaces. Even if you do not have time to visit yard sales for couches and bean bags, you can still implement some of her ideas in small ways.
Check out the interview and the fantastic pictures! Have you done something creative with your classroom? Do you have a favorite blogger? Let us know at dtowntechchat.wordpress.com.
