Learning Environment

Learning Environment

In an effective classroom, students are able to understand material, have a teacher effectively explain material, and students have time to practice the material they learned (Levin and Nolan, p. 103).  The environment of the classroom is vital for the success of students.  There are distractions that will hinder a child's success if the teacher does not maintain the positive learning environment.  A teacher has to be prepared, informed, organized, and model what they expect from students to have an effective learning environment (Levin and Nolan, p. 104).  In my classroom, I am going to have my lessons plan done prior to class and have all of the material needed for the day ready at the end of the day before the lesson.  This will allow me to have a grasp on the information, be prepared for students, not to rush throughout the lesson, and to give students ample opportunities to succeed while in my classroom.  I am planning on providing students a supportive environment that allows every one to believe that they can succeed at anything if they work hard and try to do well.  If a student is struggling on their work, I will make sure that I work with the student individually to help them grasp the concept.  This allows me to promote my positive learning environment and allow my students to feel comfortable working with me because they know I care about the information they learn.
