Middle School and Secondary School Teachers spend so much time taking care of office related tasks, answering dozens of student questions, and handling a bulk of paperwork before the first lesson even begins. With the new teacher evaluation tool that demands independence from students and better use of the teacher's time on content-related tasks, it is time for all of us to organize our classrooms into zones. The Zoned Classroom will have such a major effect on your classroom, your learners, and you that you will never go back to the old way. I developed and used this technique for years, and I know you will have as much success as my students and I have had using the program.
An overview explains how zoning a classroom works - it is easy to do with daily paybacks. Photos of a zoned classroom will help you visualize what you can do in yours, and posters for each zone are included. The downloadable file can be edited for your classroom needs.
