The Classroom Assessment Scoring System (CLASS) is a valid and reliable observation tool that focuses on emotional support, classroom organization, and instructional support for Pre-k and older age groups. This training will provide an overview of how the CLASS observation tool is organized, and implemented. Participants will gain a fundamental understanding of how to use this tool to increase their effectiveness as an educator.
