Hazelwood School GM + AD Architects pursued the Hazelwood project with a commitment to building knowledge and capacity on a building that would work with children with a very complex range of abilities. Most extant examples are schools serving the needs of children with visual limitations, or hearing limitations, or cognitive issues or physical limitations. In this case, the design would need to meet the needs and enhance the independence of children with a mix of all of these issues. The initial phase of data gathering by the architect was replaced by joint research when the new Head Teacher was hired. The firm committed to extensive and continuous user engagement as well as the participation of specialized experts.
Games That Work The Language Teacher Toolkit by Steve Smith and Gianfranco Conti is now available from Amazon. I don’t think that you have to use games to teach classes successfully. Inexperienced teachers should be wary of using games if class control is still shaky or if you have an unusually difficult class.

Varied wall and floor surface textures and built-in navigational aids - such as trail rails, varied ceiling heights, and the print, Braille, moon and graphical signage - help children to navigate around the building independently. The main school building is a single-storey “s” shape structure that reduces the perceived scale of the school and makes it less intimidating and more welcoming to small children. The shape creates a series of small scaled, intimate internal and external spaces. The design is both imaginative and sympathetic to the school’s parkland context, with its use of natural materials such as wood, slate and cork.
Classroom Games for Introductory / Beginning French Classes Every week in my first semester French class, we played games to review and reinforce what we did in the previous class. For other French teachers out there who are looking for more activities, these are what I actually used in my class this year. A lot of these I found on Pinterest, where I have a Teaching French at Uni board. Some of these classroom games require little to no prep, but having dice and maybe some playing pieces on hand is always a good idea. 5 Mind-blowing Games for Teaching French Vocabulary Sometimes, there’s no shortcut for teaching your students French words.
