Creating a Classroom Culture Responsive to Change
Teaching the Core Principles of Thinking, Behavior and Emotional Maturity
One of the biggest challenges educators today face is the behavior of students, ranging from bullying and anger, to lack of focus and no sense of accountability. Just as a foundation must be laid before a house can be built, a foundational classroom culture must be established before true and lasting learning can occur.
By creating a cohesive classroom culture where student are responsive to change, self-authority, responsibility and accountability can be woven in and applied to everyday classroom life.
When students learn not just WHAT to think but HOW to think they are empowered to:
- See more choices
- Make better decisions
- Have courage to carry out those decisions
- Let go of what doesn’t benefit their life
- Express attention, respect and appreciation for others
- Gain acceptance of self and others
- Live and learn from a place of discovery and possibilities
