As a teacher, you want your students to achieve the best possible results from their science education. This will give them insight and opportunities to gain opportunities and experiences in their lives. Children in many families may go to school for the first time, which is both exciting and challenging for them. The classroom environment should be interesting and creative. This will encourage the children to go and get a more objective education. Stimulates their interest and creativity, encourages them to keep going to school and pursue a meaningful education.
There are many opportunities for you and your students to use the classroom environment in a more creative way that can stimulate their interest and enhance their experience. These ideas can also be applied to any subject of science. This unit uses the topic of germination as an example. The learning environment opens up some possibilities for enhancement, but you can apply these ideas to any topic in science.
What you can learn in this unit
How and why is it important to develop your own classroom learning environment?
How can the interactions between you and your students affect the teaching environment and student achievement?
How to improve your study environment by being resourceful?
Why is this approach important
The physical environment of the classroom and the social and emotional environment have a significant impact on the learning of your students. Creating a positive learning environment for oneself and one’s students with respect can be done in a number of ways at little or no cost.
Teaching activities are most stimulating when they engage students to either explore the problem practically. or actively engage in developing thinking skills through problem solving. As a teacher, you have to take the initiative to lead your students on this path. Your students can then be closely related. In addition, you need to consider carefully what kind of physical environment you want in the classroom. It might not be easy if you work in school with few materials, but being resourceful you can create a colorful and inspiring classroom.
Watch selected excerpts of the video on Involving All and read Resource 1 ‘Include All’ before you do Activity 1. This will broaden your understanding of the key concepts that you need to consider as you try to make your classroom more inclusive.
Activity 1: Auditing my class
At the end of one day in the next week, take a few minutes to observe the classes that you teach. List all the good things about it, for example is it hot? or cold? Or is there a rural view from there?
Next, make a list of up to ten things that you would like to quickly collect for your class, for example:
table to display things
some paper for drawing
Chairs and tables for students.
Which of these have more realistic objectives than the others? Are there any ways you can get these locally for free? And how can you change and improve your classroom?
Record your answers and keep them handy, as you will need to look at them later.
By asking her students about the changes, Ms. Kavita is taking a definite step toward involving all of them in exploring what they would like to do with their class. In this way they are changing not only the physical environment, but also the type of interaction in their classroom. Through this, students are told that they respect them as individuals and want to share ideas with them. In both ways it is a great encouragement to all his students.
2 Developing the cognitive space
As a teacher, you need to consider the cognitive space required for an effective learning environment. This space will be determined by your expectations of what your students can do intellectually within the classroom. Developing an environment that is encouraging and motivating will give your students a greater sense of responsibility for their studies. Being more aware of your students’ specific learning needs will help you match your teaching level. You will also organize activities that will help them progress more effectively.
