For flexibility, this means different types of learning spaces according to Thornburg's research on the need for cave, campfires, life and watering hole spaces. Specifically, the project will add more cave spaces and more moveable furniture that can flex into different arrangements. <div><br></div><div>Read more and see photos of <a href="http://bvsdsuccesseffect.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/WhittierElementary-InnovationProject.pdf"><strong style="color:#0072c6;">Whittier's Innovation Project</strong></a>. <br></div></div>
