Teamwork. Engagement. Success. All of these hallmarks of a strong classroom community are key components in creating a positive academic environment where students work and learn together in harmony instead of disorder, misconduct, and disruption. Students who feel a sense of connection to their classmates, their class as a whole, and to their teachers are much more likely to behave with courtesy and self-discipline. The connections in a classroom community encourage persistence in achieving shared goals, respect for others, and effective communication skills—all important life skills. In this presentation, you will learn how to improve the way students relate to you, how to help students get to know each other better, how to help students relate well to each other, and how to engage students in shared activities that will allow them to develop a sense of belonging to the class.
