Project Description:
Middle school classrooms, where students in the transitional grades of 7 to 8 learn, tend to be no different from high school classrooms. The furniture is arranged according to the subject taught in a given room, and the amount and nature of group work preferred by the teacher. In this photograph, for instance, is a music classroom (as indicated by the array of instruments in the room), where students are to be sitting at desks arranged in a pretty generic manner.
