Being a zoo designer is a job that reaches across fields. Many are trained architects, engineers, or landscape architects, but they are not usually biologists, so they’ll collaborate with keepers, ecologists, and specialists on exhibit designs. They take into account everything from the personality of the individual animals to the "story arc" as a visitor walks through an exhibit. The designers also have to make sure exhibits meet the USDA’s safety and welfare standards, which are required of all institutions that have animals on display, and the more stringent guidelines from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), which detail exhibit specifications for accredited zoos and set the tone of modern zoo keeping philosophy. "These projects are very complex, so it helps to be able to apply these different disciplines seamlessly," says Mario Campos, a partner at Jones & Jones, an architecture firm based in Seattle.

Writing mechanicsare not graded, because the students are concentrating solely onexpression of ideas
he purpose for using a focused quickwrite as the opening ofthe class period is to link the previous day’s learning to newcoverage. This requires that the teacher construct a prompt thathelps students make relevant connections.
Quickwrites, however, do notrequire this grading “burden.” They focus not on how well studentswrite, but on how well they reason.Quickwrites may be shared orally with peers immediatelyafterward or simply collected by the teacher as a means of gaugingstudents’ grasp of on-going instruction. Either way, classroom andgrading time is minimal, but the minutes spent in this activity havehigh instructional impact
