Room/Seating Arrangements

Many people checking this blog teach in the same place routinely, with the same seating arrangements.  Everybody is comfortable.

Here's a challenge: think creatively -- is there another seating arrangement you could try?  What can you do to shake up the room layout?

Change up the room, and you trigger your students' brains to be more expectant.  (This does wear off, but works for a while).

Or skip the usual place altogether and meet somewhere new.  Maybe in a foyer, or a local coffee shop, or someone's living room, or a church building if you usually meet in a home.

Don't be afraid to try something new, and experiment.
