The physical environment of the classroom provides the backdrop for learning. A classroom designed to support learning utilizes visual supports that are purposefully selected, organized and displayed so students can easily locate information needed to be successful in their learning. Vocabulary displays, anchor charts, advance organizers, concept maps and other types of graphic organizers are all ways to provide visual support. Another key aspect of the classroom learning environment involves the arrangement of furniture. You will learn how to strategically create learning spaces that support collaboration, whole group, and small group instruction.
