1) What evidence in the photo and plan indicates that this building was a progressive school? (You may want to refer back to Reading 2.)

2) What are the approximate overall dimensions of the classroom? How do these measurements compare with the recommended dimensions? How do they compare with your classroom? (You will need the high-quality version of the floor plan to complete this exercise.)

3) What are some similarities and differences between your school and Iron Hill?

* The images on the screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain high quality versions of the photo and the floor plan, but be aware that either file will take about 45 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
