Teachers can make tangible changes to the environment to support new perspectives. This may include creating spaces for different uses such as reflection or hanging thought balloons suspended from the ceiling to stimulate curiosity. A tangible change can signal a deeper change. For example, temporarily removing books at the beginning of book week can stimulate students to change their attitude toward books, which in many parts of the world are a luxury people are grateful for.
- For a lesson on creating designs that bring delight to others, teachers can add fun objects to desks.
- Teachers can litter the floor with paper for a lesson on the environment or in civics when discussing our responsibility for the environment.
These instances of tangible changes actively work with the new perspective of the teacher. To ignore the role that tangible changes make can mean missing out on an aid to our teaching.
