  15. 15. Step 4: <br />Carefully (and nicely) go to pitch your plan to every influencer in the budget process. Show them the pictures. Be impassioned.<br />
  16. 16. Step 5: <br />If none of this works, make sure to point out just how little your department has asked for in the past. Active learning requires different classroom spaces. Traditional classrooms FORCE lecturing.<br />
