Are you looking for easy and creative ideas for your best classroom ever? Our communityâ€™s three-part Setting Up a Wow Classroom series, sponsored by Quill.com, will show you fresh ways to set up and manage your classroom. In this final webinar of the series, second grade teacher and international design consultant, Erin Klein, will share specific examples of creative classroom environments, and how you can recreate them. In her previous webinar, â€œSetting up a Brain-Friendly, Beautiful Classroom,â€ attendees requested specific examples of brain-friendly classrooms, what they look like, the purposes of learning spaces, and more. In response, Erin partnered with colleagues around the country and in her global personal learning network to curate a rich portfolio of resources that she will share. On September 18, she will discuss how to begin the process of rethinking your re-design, give you easy and manageable tips to get started, and show you several examples of thoughtfully-designed learning environments. Attendees will learn:
