Creating a positive classroom culture to promote student engagement

When students feel safe, supported, and connected in the classroom with their teachers and students, they are more likely to participate, engage more, take more risks, and thrive both academically and socially. Here are some tips for creating a positive classroom culture so your students be more participative:

Build relationships: Take the time to get to know your students on a personal level. Show interest in their lives, hobbies, and goals. Find out what are their worries, what scare them. This will help you establish trust with them and create a sense of community in the classroom.

Set expectations: Establish clear expectations and guidelines for behavior and academic performance. This will help students understand what is expected of them and feel a sense of structure and accountability in the classroom.
