Lesson Planning Components: Creating a Positive Learning Environment
Creating a positive learning environment for all of your adult students is so important. When an adult student enters your classroom for the first time, a first impression of you develops. They study your personality and how you communicate and conduct yourself as their educator. The classroom rules you establish regarding acceptable behavior, expectations and consequences will be a measure of how fair, supportive, approachable and understanding you are. Establishing yourself as a potentially positive influence in your adult students’ eyes will provide a willingness on their part to participate in and support this positive learning environment you intend to establish.
