Abstract

This capstone project focuses on how ENVoY classroom management might impact student teacher relationships and academic success in diverse high school classrooms. The project takes the form of a blog that outlines ENVoY classroom management techniques as well as discusses the philosophy of educational equity that exists behind the techniques. It includes my own analysis and research as well as interviews of ENVoY Demonstration Teachers. Due to the opportunity gaps between white students and students of color that often exist in diverse high schools, it is important to consider what might contribute to closing these gaps. Classroom management is one of the factors that impacts students day-to-day experience of school and can either contribute to or take away from their success. Through this project, I explore how ENVoY in particular might contribute to closing the gap of academic success for students of color through the development of student teacher relationships based in intentional non-verbal communication of care and trust. I utilize the blog as the format for my project in order to engage more teachers and education professionals in considering how ENVoY might be a part of reaching educational equity in their classrooms, at their schools, or in their districts.
