A teacher must be able to use an understanding of individual and group motivation and behavior to create learning environments that encourage positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self-motivation.
As a teacher, how do I create comfortable, safe, effective and efficient environment for my students? Students have different needs. Some students need less stimulation. Some work better in groups. When I set up my classroom, it is important to take the needs of my students into consideration.
It is important to set up a classroom to encourage positive interaction and active learning. Personally, I like desks and tables grouped together. I like floor work. I like having calm down areas in the room for times when kids need a break. These are all things to take into consideration when looking at the students’ learning environment.
