Feng Shui for the Classroom combines the time subject of teaching with the ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui for a guide to creating a modern learning environment.Let's face it: These days many factors compete for children's attention-even in the classroom. Teachers struggle to focus their students and limit distractions. This hip, contemporary book provides plenty of tips for manipulating the physical elements of a classroom, creating an atmosphere that will motivate, inspire, support, comfort, and encourage teachers and students alike. Some examples: "A teacher's desk should always face the classroom door.
Not only will this allow you to keep a watchful eye out for tardiness, but the chi (energy) that flows between you and your class will encourage academic strength." "The more natural light in a classroom the better. Its chi is energizing and uplifting and can inspire students to reach new heights. . . . Increase light levels with bright pictures, metal frames, mirrors, glass, and crystals. Refrain from turning on overhead lights un you absolutely need them."Each simple suggestion in Feng Shui for the Classroom brings teachers one step closer to achieving a comforting, effective classroom.
