Classrom*, etc. (for Classroom*)

It seems that classrooms nowadays are all about the computer—we've gone from learning our ABCs to our CD-ROMs in a flash. By contrast, I love the retro-looking book-filled cubbyholes pictured here and the "Guidelines for Readers Workshop" posted on the wall:

1) You must always be reading or writing your thoughts about reading;
2) You need to work silently to enable your peers to their best thinking;
3) Use a soft voice when conferring;
4) Select books you think you will enjoy and abandon books that aren't working for you after you've given them a good chance;
5) Record your reading in your reading log every day;
6) Always do your best work.

Classrom* and Clasroom* are both present nine times in OhioLINK, along with Classrooom* five times. Taken in the aggregate, these typos would be classed as "high probability" on the Ballard list with plenty of room to spare.
