Meeting in Rock common room

purple's picture

I wanted us to have class in Rock common room because we had not met there before and because it is a space I enjoy studying in. I think the common room was a good place for discussion. I like how the common room has a sliding wall that separates the larger room into two and how we were able to use that to our advantage by using the smaller room and mostly closing off the other room. Having a smaller enclosed space that was just big enough for the whole class made it easier for people to hear each other speak as well. There are also a lot of comfortable chairs in the common room, which I think helps create a more comfortable atmosphere that goes along well with the comfort we've developed with each other as a class.
