    the Responsive Classroom.Classroom!
    The Responsive Classroom theory is a deliberate mixture of social and academic learning. Theorists believe that the curriculum should include social skills that are modeled and practiced by both the teacher and the students together “creating a caring classroom environment.” Strategies are used to transition the students from home into the social atmosphere of school that improves not only academics but also student behavior.
    Elements that enhance learning in the RC start with a morning meeting, each student being greeted by the teacher and by peers. Here students unwind and become focused for learning. The meeting also includes a sharing time with question and answers, encouraging student conversation. News and announcements are also included in the meeting. The teacher could post on a board a prompt for the theme of the day’s lessons.

    “This exploratory study examined the contribution of the RC Approach over a two-year period. The RC Approach integrates social and academic learning in order to produce classroom environments that are conducive to learning by integrating social and academic learning. Two questions are addressed. First, how does teachers’ use of RC practices contribute to children’s academic and social growth? Second, how is the relation between teachers’ use of RC practices and children’s academic and social growth moderated by the presence of environmental adversity in the home?”

    "This paper reports the results of a quasi-experimental study on the contribution of the Responsive Classroom (RC) Approach to elementary school children's reading and math performance over one-, two-, and three-year periods. All children enrolled in six schools (3 intervention and 3 control schools in a single district) were the participants in the study."

    Participants included 62 teachers and 157 children at six schools. Findings showed that teachers’

    "The following was compiled by Mara Fournier, a Grade 5 teacher at Nathaniel H. Wixon, during a graduate class on the Eight Conditions for Student Aspirations provided to teachers in the district by Endicott College and the Global Institute for Student Aspirations. All of these activities, worksheets and readings support the Responsive Classroom Model and their relationship to the Eight Conditions."
