Teaching Bootcamp – Week 2: Organizing the Classroom
One of the most challenging parts of running an effective classroom is organizing it in such a way that it is functional and attractive. This week we have recruited some wonderful teachers to share their tips and tricks for organizing the classroom. They offer practical and inexpensive ideas that can help you create the classroom you have always dreamed of having.
Also coming up this week, we will feature our second #TeachChat of the summer. We will be talking firsthand with some of the teachers who know how to keep their classrooms organized and learn from their ideas. Need help organizing or want to share your expertise? Plan to join us on Wednesday, June 20th at 9pm EST/8pm CST on Twitter. Find out more about how to join #TeachChat by checking out this page.
