Create a successful classroom climate. | EDCI397 | Scoop.it
Creating a positive classroom climate and a supportive environment will help your students become successful learners.
Michelle Dubin 's insight:

Although I found this entire article really helpful and interesting, the part that I enjoyed reading most was about having high expectations. In regards to creating a positive classroom climate I have previously read about creating a warm classroom environment and being enthusiastic, however, having high expectations was new. I think that it is really important for teachers to have high expectations for their students in order for students to grow and thrive. If you teachers don't believe in their students then why should they believe in themselves?

If you're not familiar with PBL here are the essentials to get you started

Lauren Yachera's curator insight, February 19, 2014 2:08 PM

This is a really informative website that explains to readers what project based learning is. It reiterates the concepts that we have gone over thus far in EDCI397 in a simple and easy way. I especially like that there are separate pages to browse through on the right side of the page. The link, "Why PBL?" struck me. It explains that now, more than ever, students find school to be boring and pointless. We have to change this! Students are the future and we have to make sure that they play an active and engaging role in their worlds. These are definitely concepts that I will implement in my classroom.
