Celeste, Eric. “Solving Downtown’s Homeless Problem Begins with Taking the Red Pill | Cover Story.” Creative Loafing Atlanta. Creative Loafing Atlanta, 3 Nov. 2011. Web. 27 Apr. 2016. Celeste, Eric. “Solving Downtown’s Homeless Problem Begins with Taking the Red Pill | Cover Story.” Creative Loafing Atlanta. Creative Loafing Atlanta, 3 Nov. 2011. Web. 27 Apr. 2016. In this article written by Eric Celeste, he discusses how homelessness is a major problem in downtown Atlanta and that it needs to be solved. Celeste explains how he viewed Atlanta when he first stayed in downtown for a week and how no matter where you went downtown you’ll see homeless people near hotel entrances, in the streets, or on street corners camped out. The reason why he believes the homeless population is so big downtown is due to the shelter and route up Peachtree to Pine where you see various types of homeless people: aggressive, cracked up, and angry. This is what he believes is the issue, the dichotomy of homeless people located in downtown. He then goes on to talk about how he and a friend visited different homeless organizations to observe them passing out food and blankets. According to A.J. Robinson, the homeless issue is a blessing and a curse due to downtown’s response of showing they care and the overabundance of homelessness downtown due to no one else doing it regularly. Also, the Neighborhood Planning Units (NPUs) want the problem of homelessness to go away. However, this issue will not be solved until Peachtree-Pine shelter is gone....

Web. 27 Apr. 2016. <Vanderbilt University>. In this commentary that’s apart of the center for teaching department of Vanderbilt University, an anonymous  professor with the name “Window-Gazer” askes Professor P is there a way to have class outside without wasting a whole class period due to his/her students routinely asking. In response to Window-Gazer’s question Professor P gives ‘Window-Gazer” some things to think about such as rethinking of new ways to incorporate introducing ideas in meaningful ways. Professor P then goes on to give Window-Gazer a few things to consider as to why hosting class outside can be beneficial. The following considerations are: being outdoors can put course concepts in a new context, use nature to discuss “big ideas” in your course, and use nature to emphasize course readings or concepts. However, the main key to having a successful outdoor classroom session is to not “the outdoors” be the distraction, but to redefine your notions of a classroom. I found this commentary interesting because it gives you reasons as to why having class outside can be effective as Scholl and Gowri discusses throughout “Recognizing Campus L:andscapes as Learning...
