Teaching with Intention {Chapter Three}

So I think it’s safe to say that classroom environment is important.  I am also willing to bet that something stated in your beliefs on education that you have been pondering about (and hopefully recording :D) regard the environment of your classroom.  The environment sets the tone for what happens in the classroom throughout the entire school year.  But how the heck do we begin to create a classroom environment that fits all of our hopes and dreams?  That’s a difficult task.  Debbie Miller suggests that you start by purging and organizing all of the things that sometimes clutter our… View Post
