Co-Construct the Classroom

While the room doesn't look fancy, it's got great spaces for super learning and co-creation with students and colleagues. 

In Edmin's book, For White Folks Who Teach in the Hood. . . and the Rest of Y'all Too, he recommends co-constructing the classroom with students. I thought a lot about this as I set up my classroom today. Rather than hang up lots of posters, choose seats for students, and make all the decisions about specific spaces and places, I left a lot of free space and white walls for students and I to make the room our own.
