Published by Heinemann Books
Their Next-Step Guide to Enriching Classroom Environments, by Bonnie Campbell Hill and Carrie Ekey, lays this foundation with two parallel rubrics that help everyone contribute to a successful literacy initiative:

· A rubric for leaders helps principals, literacy coaches, and staff developers assess whether a school’s physical spaces and instructional practices are well aligned and helps set achievable goals

· A rubric for teachers helps them examine their classrooms and design spaces that mirror research-based beliefs about learning and teaching.



Each chapter walks through one strand of the rubrics and provides study groups and PLCs with even more tools for developing common language, beliefs, and practices around integrating classroom design and literacy instruction:
