Classroom Snapshots

The main components of organization in the classroom are effective class management, creating a positive learning environment, and the physical set-up of the room. An important consideration in teaching and learning is getting to know your students and designing your physical classroom environment around the needs of your diverse learners.

A classroom learning space might include:

  • Areas for partner and small group work
  • Area for quiet, independent work
  • Differentiated learning centers
  • Easy access to materials and resources for teacher and student use
  • Posting of visual schedules as a reminder for routines and expectations
