Classrooms, whether they are traditional classrooms, laboratories, or multi-purpose spaces built to accommodate multiple ways of teaching, are first and foremost actual physical spaces that have an impact on the interactions that take place inside of their walls. The way these spaces are configured and their histories, evident in color of the wood, the creaking of the floors, and the changing identities of those welcomed between their walls, influence the experience of all who enter, teachers and learners.
As part of the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning’s Inclusive Teaching at Princeton series, all students are invited to submit photographs that narrate the space of their classrooms; that find a way to interpret the space through their own particular perspective. We are looking for photographs that engage aesthetically with the space and tell a story evoking the photographer’s lived experience of the classroom.
