#3: A Positive Learning EnvironmentMarch 26, 2012

Are the children eager to learn?  Does the teacher command respect?  Do the children listen and follow directions?

How the children are instructed, engaged and redirected is of utmost importance.  An experienced teacher will know how to motivate her students to want to learn without frustration or a raised voice. They should know how to use their positive power to get children to respond and engage.
