Complete Learning Environment Plan on Classroom Climate and Culture: Module 4: Managing the Learning Environment Unit 1: Climate and Culture of the Learning Environment Activity 2: Building a Positive Climate and Culture Project Description Overview Building a positive climate and culture doesn’t happen by accident. It requires careful planning and developing norms and expectations for how students will behave. With the onset of online learning, it is important to be cognizant of what norms and expectations would work or not work in physical and online learning environments. In this activity, you will be researching and discussing with your cohort ways to build a positive classroom climate and culture that you can implement in your own classroom. You will be recording these ideas in a Learning Environment Plan that you will develop throughout Module 4 with strategies for managing the learning environment, which will be useful during the clinical practice portion of the program. Performance outcomes Candidates research strategies to create a positive classroom climate What will you do? In the Virtual Classroom or Discussion Forum, discuss your perception of problem behaviors in students: “What problem student behaviors have you encountered in your or another teacher’s classroom and how were they handled? What would you do differently or not?” Work in small groups to brainstorm and research strategies that will help you build a positive classroom climate in a physical and an online classroom. Discuss possible norms that you can establish in physical and online learning environments. Remember that norms and rules are not the same. As a group, collate examples and non-examples of norms based on what works and doesn’t work in a physical and online learning environment. Use a Google Spreadsheet or similar organizing tool. Mention the names of the group contributors on the spreadsheet. Access the “Learning Environment Plan” template in the Activity Resources for this activity. Individually, make a copy and use the Google Document. Save it in the cohort’s Google Shared Drive. Individually, complete step one of the “Learning Environment Plan” by writing a reflection on your idea of a positive classroom climate. Include the top 3-5 strategies that you have researched or discussed with your cohort and would like to implement in your own classroom.
