This paper summarizes the considerations and steps necessary to properly design a successful program for mathematics, science, and all content areas in the elementary classroom. It offers an overview of classroom arrangement to create a stimulating environment, evaluating materials for a content-based program, and offering a variety of assessments to evaluate student learning.
From the Paper:"Evertson, Emmer, and Worsham (2003) state that the logical place for a teacher to begin his or her classroom management procedures is in arranging the classroom as it occurs prior to the beginning of the school year. Reflective teachers will arrive at the school several days before their contract calls them to so that they can assess the space to plan for the best arrangement, begin to hang posters and other personal effects, and decorate bulletin boards (Eby, Herrel, & Hicks, 2002). They go on to say that the classroom appearance makes a statement to the students and others about how much the teacher cares for the environment in which the class will learn. Whether the room is tidy or neat, colorful or drab, or filled with extra items to make it livelier will set a tone."
