Enriched environments--over time increase the brain’s ability to connect, communicate internally and to learn
Impoverished environment--have the opposite effect – they shrink the brain’s ability to connect and communicate and limit learning potential
Enriched looks like...
•Colors that pop
•Not too visually stimulating
•Bulletin boards should serve dual purpose—colorful but also with a messageNeat, clean, easy to maneuver
•Students on task
•Students working independently
•Working with teammates or partners
•Anchor charts, etc.
•Needs to show different areas of learning
•Should show growth
•Areas should be organized and changed as needed if you see any problems
Sends a Message
•Anchor charts for students to use to lead and guide their learning
