CLASSROOM CLIMATE PLAN

"What are you doing in your classroom now that you could turn over to your students to do?"

Many teachers do a lot of daily tasks on the classroom that could really be given to students to do.  Assigning daily tasks to students helps create a strong sense of community in the classroom SUPPORTING WHOLE CHILD THINKING AND RESILIENCE.  WHEN everyone has a role in the classroom community STUDENTS ARE ENGAGED, CREATIVE, COMMUNICATE IDEAS, AND ARE SUPPORTED.  Establishing these daily roles also help free up time for the teacher to give more attention to her students daily needs.  I remember in elementary school having different responsibilities in the classroom, such as passing out papers, filing, cleaning up.... and I think it also helped me with learning about responsibilities, both on an individual and group level.  I ALSO THINK THAT STUDENTS WILL BEGIN TO SEE ALL OF THE WORK THAT A TEACHER DOES ASIDE FROM TEACHING THE CLASS AND WILL THEN BE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE AND HOPEFULLY APPRECIATE ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE  OF THE CLASSROOM.
