Here is the list of benefits that we came up with during our CI discussion. Are there any others we could add?

1. What is one benefit of the “one-room” setting?

· Resources: you can use GED and ESL resources interchangeably

· Staff doesn’t get bored

· We grow professionally because we teach a variety of levels

· Students support and help each other, mentoring

· Cultural mix

· Makes it possible to offer education to our students

· Learn to become flexible or you don’t stay long!

· Students can be teachers

· Teachers learn all about community resources

· Easy to shift groups, meet each student at his/her level

· Can build strong relationships with students

· Teachers become more creative
