DoL1 Focus – Helping students Develop Positive Attitudes and Perceptions about
Classroom Climate

Help students understand that attitudes and perceptions related to classroom climate
influence learning.
By helping students feel comfortable in their own classroom it is vital that teachers
have knowledge of the major disruptions to the students learning areas. As the
students feel that the teachers are trying to help them feel a sense of comfort by
understanding the students wants and needs, if they are uncomfortable in talking
about certain topics and you believe that it will further discomfort the student try and
avoid that if possible.

DoL5 Focus – Habits of Mind

Maintain an Open Mind.
By maintaining an open mind students can become more creative with topics in class especially
linking into traditional stories and art lessons. By maintaining an open mind the students are
able to give you their own opinion what they think will happen next in the story other than
what is written on the page also with art this allows them to elaborate when given a sheet of
paper what would work together and what wouldn’t. This critical thinking topic is vital in
classrooms as it is a great developmental stage for students to touch on as creativity is
something not touched on as much in classrooms in today’s society.
