Technique 11:
Draw the Map
Means making space planning part of your lesson planning.

once a year: it should be adjusted and controlled regularly.

Students socializing vs. students paying attention to the teacher.

Technique 11:
Draw the Map
Questions to ask when planning the classroom layout:

When should students interact in school?
How should students interact in school?
Which kids of interactions support which kids of lesson objectives?

The classroom layout should be built on an idea much stronger than the students’ need of socialization.

Technique 11:
Draw the Map
Doug Lemov is a big fan of rows as the default classroom structure: three paired columns of rows.
Important facts to keep in mind when space planning:

Regardless of the layout, the teacher should always keep in mind the importance of aisles and alleys: the teacher has to be able to get anywhere in the room without asking permission because a backpack is in the way. You cannot interrupt your lesson to be where you want.

Think as intentionally about aisles and alleys as about desks.

Planning walls is part of the process:
Walls should help, not harm, so avoid clutter and over stimulation.
A few critical things should be up and should not distract students’ attention.
Posted items should focus on useful tools that have been taught (reminders of key steps in adding fractions, pictures representing vocabulary, etc).
Student work on walls: post only the work that is both exemplary and provides a model to other students.

What will you be
doing and saying?
What will students
be doing during each
phase of your lesson?
What makes a lesson objective effective?
It is important to think about what makes
an objective useful and effective. Todd McKee designed four criteria for effective objectives, the 4 Ms. If we’re able to ensure that our objectives meet those criteria, our chances of being effective teachers are high.

Effective Objectives Should Be:
Progressing from unit planning to lesson planning
Using a well-framed objective to define the goal of each lesson
Determining how you'll assess your effectiveness in reaching your goal
Deciding on your activity
The simplest explanation or strategy is the best.
Opt for the shortest path to the goal.
Post your objective
Must be visible
Same location

Why “Post It”?
Students must know what they are doing and the importance of doing it.
Visitors who walk in your room must be able to give you feedback based on what you’re teaching. (your objective)
