Silence!

By Ilana Zadok, 8th Grade History Teacher

In considering the question how does space impact learning?, I was both humbled and delighted when a group of boys who really, really struggled with their learning last year, worked independently on challenging work in silence for a lengthy period of time. Though noise can actually be quite suggestive of learning, this particular silence was quite loud.  It was screaming, “Yes!  Space does impact learning.”
