The fluorescent light covers will soften the light in the classroom. With the soften of the harsh lights, the classroom will have a calming effect on the students which will give a more studious atmosphere. With the current fluorescent lights, there is a glare on the white board at the front of the room. Currently, we turn out the lights and rely on the sunlight that comes through the one window in our classroom. Students request to have the lights out to work because they have said it is calmer then having the overhead fluorescent lights one in the room.
