Classroom Ideologies
5 Ways of Conceptualizing Learning Spaces
Classrooms are tools of the state
designed to foster loyalty
& structure how people behave.

Each classroom is a market place
built to commoditize consciousness
& promote wider trade.

Classrooms are basically factory production lines
geared towards maximum efficiency
in the least amount of time.

Classrooms are extended sports games
in which students learn about teamwork
while jockeying for social gain.

None of these are actually true.
If anything, classrooms resemble zoos
in which students are categorized, then caged –
placed in convenient boxes
for public display.

Which of these statements do you believe?
How does each influence what is perceived?
& in what ways is each model incomplete?
