    “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?”

    ...
    Rules from the classroom should follow students to the library (Riley refers to these as “traveling rules”.) These should be discussed and students should understand that they are no different from the library rules.
    Children’s hopes and dreams could also be incorporated. Riley suggests finding a way to foster these into the library discussion, focusing on how the library can help accomplish them.
    In addition to benefitting the school library, the RC approach can work towards improving literacy in the classroom. McTigue and Rimm-Kaufman’s article, “The Responsive Classroom Approach and Its Implications for Improving Reading and Writing,” focuses on a three year study of the RC approach to learning. This study found “teachers’ use of RC practices contributed to better academic performance and social behavior as well as children’s positive perception of school” (2011). Findings concluded that the RC approach led to higher reading and math scores. This article also emphasizes the importance of the “Morning Meeting,” which helps prepare students for the day and provides them with a positive outlook, which can result in an efficient classroom. Sample lesson plans with RC activities are also included in this journal article.
    Teachers working together in order to provide students with a constructive learning environment is the focus of the article “Teacher Collaboration in the Context of the Responsive Classroom Approach.” This study examined teacher collaboration amongst elementary school teachers in urban school districts. Findings showed the schools that focused on the RC approach tended to have more teacher collaboration occurring than the traditional setting. Network meetings, held three to four times a year, helped RC schools implement collaboration. “The underlying goal of these RC school-wide practices is for teachers to learn teaching is a collective, not an individualistic, enterprise” (2007).
    The following video highlights the Responsive Classroom approach to student learning. This YouTube video, created by the Northeast Foundation for Children, Inc., interviews teachers about how they use the RC approach in their classrooms, along with the benefits to this style of learning. Setting a positive tone for the classroom can go a long way!
