Class 3

The Class 3 room does not gather up the children in a circle any more. There is now a change in the relationship between teacher and class. The teacher’s authority becomes more important. The room is more elongated and divided into a wider front section where the teacher stands and a longer section for the Class. Both, through the floor plan and through the rise and fall in the roof, the teacher and the class are placed opposite each other. At the crossover, the space wherein the teacher and class meet, the room is at its highest point. At the front of the room the light streams from above; at the sides the walls have receded to make room for uninterrupted rows of windows which bring in lots of light and encourage the two way flow between the world outside and the class within.
