All children learn language in a language-rich environment. In thinking
about what you have learned about language so far, how will you design
the physical space of your classroom to allow for language
opportunities? You will need to think about the type of communication
and interactions that you would like to see take place throughout your
For example, you might place drawing paper and clipboards in the block
area to help foster communication so that children can draw their block
creations on paper and share them with other children. Having a large
open space in the block area invites cooperation so children can
verbally communicate and work together on large building structures.
You also might have the block shelf labeled for children to be able to
see and provide books of shapes and building for children to explore.
For this assignment, you will create a floor plan of your classroom that
fosters language development. Your classroom design should have a
minimum of three physical areas of the classroom detailed including an
explanation of how the design supports language acquisition. You can
use web resources such as Classroom Architect or Gliffy to design your
classrooms or you may use Microsoft Word to draw your design using
shapes and the textbox feature. If you choose to use Classroom Architect or Gliffy,
you will need to download your design as a PDF file or JPG file and
insert the image into a Word document before uploading your final
For each area (minimum of three) that you define in your classroom floor plan, you must include the following:
Explain how the area is set up
Explain how specifically the area supports language development
Describe the activity or experience that the children can specifically be engaged in
Explain what the role of the teacher will be
How you will assess the effectiveness of this area on language development
This assignment should be completed in a two- to three-page paper (in
addition to the title page and reference page) that accompanies your
visual floor plan. Your project should be written in APA format as
outlined in the Ashford Writing Center, and include at least two
scholarly resources in addition to the course text. Please remember to
provide evidence from the textbook to support your design features. You
must also provide a reference citation in APA format at the bottom of
your floor plan.
