Responsive Classroom

Responsive Classroom is a research-based education approach associated with greater teacher effectiveness, higher student achievement, and improved school climate. Responsive Classroom practices help educators build competencies in four key domains—each of which enables and enriches the others:

Engaging Academics Teachers create learning tasks that are active, interactive, appropriately challenging, purposeful, and connected to students’ interests.

Positive Community Teachers nurture a sense of belonging, significance, and emotional safety so that students feel comfortable taking risks and working with a variety of peers.

Effective Management Teachers create a calm, orderly environment that promotes autonomy and allows students to focus on learning.

Developmental Awareness Teachers use knowledge of child development, along with observations of students, to create a develop - mentally appropriate learning environment.
