Naturally, lesson plans are important, but what about educational ergonomics? Like adults, kids work and learn best when they're comfortable physically, mentally and emotionally. Find out how to design a calm and creative environment that's conducive to passing knowledge along and for picking it up. Discover how to best vary the setup of a classroom based on the age of the students or the subject matter at hand ; or even the day of a given class. Did you know that the arrangement of a classroom on the first day of school can affect the atmosphere for the rest of the year? Viewers will learn how they can create a sense of "ownership" ; and therefore pride ; among students simply by allowing them to help with certain set-up aspects in their classroom.

And décor is only part of the equation. This program also addresses the establishment of routines, tactics for dealing with transitions, and maintenance of discipline in the classroom. Experienced teachers discuss ways they've involved students in classroom rule-making and thus established a positive environment based on mutual respect among their community of learners.
