Collaborative Space Design
At TLC Leadership Academy we believe that a dynamic, learner-centered instructional space must be flexible, facilitate collaboration, and encourage risk taking while feeling safe.
Many schools take the perspective that the teacher “owns” a classroom. A cornerstone of the TLC Transformational Education® model is that students have voice in their school experience and that the classroom space is owned by both students and teachers.
This means allowing students to participate in the design of the instructional space where they spend a vast majority of their weekdays.
Our school model moves away from an instructional approach in which the teacher teaches and students listen; because of this we must have a school that includes flexible spaces that students and teachers can collaboratively design.
