Classrooms

SCALE-UP classrooms of various sizes have been created across the country. A few are shown below. All share certain features:

tables to facilitate group interactions (usually round, 6' or 7' in diameter)

white boards around the room and/or for each group

teacher station near the center of the room

networked laptop computers
