In our Middle School, which houses grades 6-8, we have a 7th Grade Language Arts teacher, Mrs. Kara Davis, implementing a Next Generation Classroom. In her classroom, the main 21st Century Next Generation building block focuses around the National Council for Teachers of English (NCTE) 21st Century Literacies. Mrs. Davis' learning space is undergoing quite a transformation from no traditional student desks to "Starbuck's style" seating to the addition of a garage door that opens to an outdoor learning space. Offering students a variety of non-traditional seating spaces and technology tools enhances the digital literacy writing experience. Students will find their "voice" in a variety of non-traditional assessments and become content creators on the web.
