In today’s educational landscape, classrooms are recognized as more than just a place for learning. Educators recognize the importance of fostering a positive classroom environment where students feel secure, acknowledged, accepted, and motivated. This involves implementing routines and fostering opportunities for autonomy, risk-taking, questioning, and addressing challenges in the learning process.

Join our live virtual session tailored for educators as we explore the essential elements of climate and culture in educational settings. Discover strategies to create a positive, inclusive environment that enhances outcomes for both students and staff. This professional development opportunity empowers you to create a collaborative and uplifting learning community, ultimately producing positive outcomes for all stakeholders.

Establishing the Relationship between Climate and Culture Identifying Characteristics of Classroom Cultures for Creating a Positive Classroom Climate Building a Robust Classroom Culture and Climate Promoting Positive Peer Relationships Cultivating a Safe Physical Environment Implementing Positive Behavior Supports Encouraging Collaboration and Problem-Solving Establishing Routines, Procedures, and Expectations

As all PreK-12 educators navigate the current classroom environment we acknowledge that we are not merely trying to close achievement gaps but we are understanding the significance of cultivating a positive classroom environment, where students feel secure, recognized, accepted, and motivated. This entails incorporating routines and creating opportunities for autonomy, embracing risk-taking, encouraging questioning, and addressing challenges in the learning journey. Only in this positive and relationship based space, can all educators really learn to facilitate occasions for meaningful and

extended discussions, promoting dialogue between the teacher and student(s) as well as fostering interactions among students. When all PreK-12 educators and all students possess a clear understanding of the learning objectives, the purpose behind the learning, and the criteria for assessing their grasp of the material.
