How to Create a Caring Classroom

By OSA Webmaster8 Subscribe to RSS | December 23rd 2011 | Views:

It is specified by the researchers that student achievement increases when they feel comfortable in their learning environment. A caring classroom is not only full of comfort but it also allows the teacher to spend more time in teaching and less time in managing students disagreement. Creating a caring classroom starts on the very first day of school. The first thing which a teachers should do is to create establish a warm and caring atmosphere inside the classroom. It is also important to make an atmosphere of trust where students can feel free without any tension that their classmates will make fun of them. From very beginning, you make it clear to the students that they should maintain the decorum in the class. At the same time it is important to have a good classroom management, establish both team and class spirit. Teacher must make the proper seating arrangements for the students in cooperative way.

During the first few week of the school teachers spend plenty of time in encouraging team spirit. For the better result they make the random teams and change the team daily. It enables the students to know each member of the class and participate with lots of team builders. There are certain things which teachers should do on regular basis like conducting daily class meetings. In this session students can share about their lives, team building games, can discuss about the issues that come up in the classroom and they can enjoy too. When teachers are praising the students they should praise the effort not the talent. There are different category of student in which one category put lots of effort and time to complete their assignment but the other category don’t spend much time, they only use little bit of their time and they make the assignment easily. Teachers show the students right away that they value those two traits. In the class, teacher should follow only unbiased policy otherwise it will spoil the environment. Nothing will spoil a classroom community faster than writing names on the board, using a divisive and competitive “table tallies” reward system, or lobbing threats at your students.

Teachers really have to care about the students if they want to create a caring classroom community. Apart from all this teachers should not make assumption that how students will react to particular things. For this type of issue you can use role play. Just spend 15 minutes in discussing the certain topic. “What should we do if a classmate drops a tub of markers all over the floor?” “What should we do if someone gets hurt or sick at recess?” “What should we do if two people want the same cool new book off our classroom bookshelf?” “What should you do if something good happens to someone else (and not to you personally)?” “Does being first in line really matter?” This type of discussion will be helpful in maintaining good environment in the school and will make the students think in a matured way.

Best wishes to all teachers to make the classroom a place where children learn kindness as well as academics.
