This book is a companion observation guide for Inspiring Spaces for Young Children.
An inspiring environment is essential for helping young children learn. The Rating Observation Scale for Inspiring Environments challenges teachers to examine classrooms in a totally new way -- with an eye for what is aesthetically beautiful and inspiring.
Educators will learn to determine a classroom's level of aesthetic beauty by looking through a lens of nature, color, furnishings, textures, displays, lighting, and focal points. ROSIE then provides images and examples to assist in turning learning spaces into inspirational environments in which children can grow and learn.
This groundbreaking tool assesses classrooms in a whole new way!
