Rationale

Creating a positive learning environment

I chose “Creating a Positive Learning Environment” because it’s so fundamental to humans to feel valued. This relates back to why I related to Humanistic Learning Theory – the goal is the same. People need to feel purpose, feel that they belong and fit within groups and society, and not fear feeling ostracized.

Recognizing the importance of students feeling secure, confident, and feeling like a member of the group will help guide the development of my lessons and the manner in which I interact with the students on a day-to-day basis. This understanding goes beyond day-to-day lessons and guides me in daily interactions with people, not just students.
