The Walls Talk: Tuning in to What Your Classroom Displays Communicate (webinar)

Learning Level 1: Introductory/Awareness

The learning environment is often referred to as the “3rd teacher.” This introductory training will narrow in on classroom displays in the learning environment, what they communicate, and how they support children’s development, learning, sense of self and community. Participants will review the purposes of classroom displays, think critically about what their classroom displays communicate, assess displays using ECERS classroom display indicators, and consider how to be more intentional about what is being posted on classroom walls. Join us as we answer the question, “What are my classroom walls communicating?”
