California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health in Schools.
From a psychological perspective, it is important that teachers establish a classroom atmosphere that encourages mutual support and caring and creates a sense of community. Such an atmosphere can play a key role in preventing learning, behavior, emotional, and health problems. This training tutorial is designed with self-directed opportunities for more in-depth learning about enhancing student learning through classroom changes. It is divided into three sessions on rethinking what is possible in the classroom, understanding student motivation, and general classroom practices. The tutorial is organized topically, with readings and related activities for preparation, active learning, and follow-up. (GCP)
