Establishing a positive classroom community that is academically productive and emotionally supportive
The research question addressed in this capstone was, how do you establish a positive classroom community that is academically productive and emotionally supportive? It documents how the building of a positive community in a classroom is one of the most important processes teachers should focus on during a school year. There are three essential elements that need to be addressed when building classroom community: student-to-student relationships, teacher-to-student relationships, and the overall school atmosphere. All three of these aspects are important to the success of the community. The capstone addresses the definition of classroom community, the importance of classroom community, and the process of developing classroom community. The capstone also includes a teacher manual focusing on activities and processes teachers can use to develop and strengthen student-to-student relationships, teacher-to-student relationships, and an overall sense of school community.
