This book offers both a conceptual framework and practical guidance for arranging the learning environment. It will give classroom teachers and future teachers in elementary and early childhood settings a better understanding of the effects of the teacher-arranged environment in which they spend their days with children. Through its text and illustrations, it presents practical information and procedures for making the learning environment supportive. Examples and drawings of environmental arrangements from real classrooms and step-by-step environmental assessment activities will help teachers examine their own learning environments and their effects on classroom behaviors and events. Principals, teacher supervisors, and other school personnel who assist and evaluate teaching will also benefit from viewing the learning environment as an instructional strategy, as shown and described in this book.
