Classroom set up guidelines summarizing points of vad

Classroom Set-up Guidelines:Summarizing Points of VAD

  • Visibility –

  • Accessibility

  • Distractibility


Visibility

Visibility

  • A lack of equal visibility of instructional areas and displays erodes student motivation and accountability.

  • The teacher must be able to see all students at all times, whether he or she is instructing the whole class, small groups, or individuals.

  • All students must be able to clearly see all instructional areas and displays.


Accessibility

Accessibility

  • Congestion increases the potential for problems.

  • You must be able to move easily to any student, especially those who most frequently need help.

  • You must be able to easily access needed materials.

  • Students must be able to easily access needed materials.


Distractibility

Distractibility

  • Objects, animals, and other students compete with you and academic materials for student attention.

  • Seat students away from obvious distracters – e.g, windows overlooking the campus, pencil sharpener, wastebasket, active animals, computer station, etc.

  • Separate, and seat away from one another, students who often interact inappropriately.
