33. Describe your ideal classroom, physically
It would be large enough to fit 30 students comfortably in large, even-plane desks with separate chairs. It would have color on at least one wall -- a comfortable green or deep, calming blue -- and some windows. Not too many to be distracting, but enough for natural light to illuminate the room as well as or better than the fluorescent lights. It would have an LCD projector installed in the ceiling; DVD/VCR combo; ELMO; whiteboards; and a portable projector screen, for when I want to change the room orientation. It would have 5-7 computers, an always-functional student printer, and a teacher computer with ability to cross the school firewall. I would have thermostat control, 1 filing cabinet, 2-3 bookcases, shelves on all walls, and one large cabinet for other storage needs.
