Creating a Positive Learning Environment: Fostering Respect in the Classroom

January 30, 2024

During this webinar, Dr. Andrea S. Mayfield, Director of Project Grow at the University of West Alabama, will discuss why creating a positive learning environment is essential to fostering respect in the classroom and will facilitate our new simulation, Respect in the School Environment.

In this simulation, you play the role of a middle school teacher who must address the challenges of integrating a new student into your classroom after common behavior expectations have been formed. Several scenarios in this simulation will challenge you to build and draw on a culture of respect among students and between you as the teacher and the students in class. Key roles assigned to students are contested and questioned by their classmates.
