This book was written as a direct result of requests from teachers who Roger has worked with over the years rearranging classrooms, store cupboards or even whole schools! The plans, advice and ideas within the book are designed to help teachers understand the principles and necessity of good classroom planning, in order to achieve a well managed, effective teaching and learning environment within which children thrive.
This twin pack brings together two important, complimentary books (203/09 & 204/09) that will enable any teacher to improve their classroom environment and enhance childrens’ learning.
