In the Winter 2014 the physics department installed ‘illegal’ whiteboards around its classroom: we bought dry-erase sheets from Home Depot and used double faced tape to secure them to the walls of the classroom. This was done without permission from the school’s administration. Teachers now make students use these boards regularly during lessons. We are applying for this grant to replace the poor quality boards with sturdier boards and to have them properly installed. Getting new boards is an opportunity to document how we use them and to reflect on how to improve or change things.
