Not all of summer for teachers is time off. This week I am spending time working with other teachers in Richland Two learning about the Schlecty Center’s Design Institute’s Working on the Work Program.

We are spending time looking at ways to improve motivation through designed work experiences for students. One of the elements we have talked about this week has been the idea of how designers and design affects us all. We spent last afternoon using the elements of design to look closely at how the Sandhills Shopping Center in Northeast Columbia was designed.

Here’s a simple movie my group assembled based on our views and interviews.
