Out with the old, in with the new, kind of.

Humanities is a class that requires extra space due to a combined class of freshmen and sophomores with about 45 students per class.

We wanted to make sure that the lecture hall was available for people to use for its intended purpose,”

— Humanities teacher Sarah Wiseman

Last year the humanities classes established the lecture hall as home base, but now they have transferred to rooms C152 and C154 where the wall was partially knocked down to make it one room.

“One of the biggest effects is that we have two teachers in the classroom, it’s called co-teaching,” Humanities teacher Sarah Wiseman said. “And so me, and Mrs. Evans work together. A lot of times one of s will be directly teaching, while the other one is checking in and conferencing with individuals or like just checking homework and stuff.”

Meanwhile, the lecture hall is back to serve its original purpose as the school needs an open space, in order to hold large group meetings.

“The biggest motivation for moving I think, for me and Mrs. Rainwater was that we wanted to make sure that the lecture hall was available for people to use for its intended purpose,” Wiseman said. “So combined lectures, club meetings, and other large group activities. The other reason is that we really just needed a more flexible space, between the heavy furniture and the steps in the lecture hall and it didn’t allow for much movement so we couldn’t have group discussions, it was hard to do group projects where people could spread out.”

The new classroom is less cluttered so everyone has more room,”

— sophomore Tiffany Truong

The school also wanted to follow the trend of other FISD schools and have a “multi-purpose” or “flex” space.

“The new room is working out well, we love the flexibility to be able to rearrange the desks to spread out, and we love how quiet the chairs are because the chairs in the lecture hall are too noisy.”

Sophomore Tiffany Truong discussed her view on the room change. 

“I liked the old humanities classroom better because the board was a lot bigger, and you could see it,” sophomore Tiffany Truong said. “But the new classroom is less cluttered so everyone has more room.”
