These two chapters were all about setting up your learning environment. What kind of "stuff" do you have in your classroom? Are you encouraging making in your classroom simply by offering supplies to your students? And after reading chapter 9, what ideas or plans do you have for your new or improved making learning environment?
Next week we will discuss chapters 10 and 11. We only have 3 weeks left in our spring book club. (Will it even be spring by then?) If you haven't been keeping up with the readings and commenting to the posts, be sure you take some time to do that. We will award PGPs at the end of the book club and those who have participated in every weeks' conversation will be eligible for a prize. All the more reason to participate!
