The instructional environment refers to the instructional, behavioral, and personal aspects of the classroom experience.
An extensive amount of research has linked positive academic environments to higher student achievement and graduation rates.
Instructional environments are made up of multiple, inter-related facets that can either support or inhibit learning.
Learning environments need to be student-centered rather than teacher centered environments to support learning success.
Effective schooling requires building a supportive environment that utilizes classroom management that is trauma-informed and integrates social emotional learning (SEL).
