Issue 3: A Place in Space


Issue 3 of ‘Outside the Lines’, a virtual magazine supporting teachers in developing a high-quality, diverse, authentic, and integrated curriculum.


On a grand scale, cities and buildings are planned with a particular society’s attitudes and concerns in mind, demonstrated through the use of materials, as well as how the space is designed and navigated. It also shows if, and how, we acknowledge, protect, and support our communities’ more vulnerable citizens.On a private scale, our personal spaces can reflect our values, represent our history, or show what we are (or aren’t) able to prioritize.

In this issue, students will look at and collectively design a ‘city’ that addresses a particular challenge/issue. They then look internally to design and build a room that reflects the story of themselves that they wish to share.
