This course will focus on the learning environments of pre-kindergarten through third-grade classrooms. The classroom environment is often referred to as the 'third' teacher. The structure, design, and choice of materials in the classroom influence how teaching and learning in all developmental domains take place. Students will learn how to design a supportive, intellectually stimulating classroom environment; how to reflect and support children's growth in all areas, especially the development of self-regulation. In addition, they will learn how a well-designed environment supports classroom management.
