The CLASS system assesses the quality of teaching and helps you become a better teacher. It doesn't look at any of the equipment in the classroom but rather focuses on the quality of the teacher's interactions with students and how she uses instructional strategies and time to help children get the most out of their preschool experience. I highly recommend using this tool! Specialized training and support can be found at Teachstone.com.
