Abstract/Description

Teachers use a variety of strategies that create positive learning environments. This study examined how teachers effectively create and maintain positive classroom environments that lead to student success. This study has two purposes; the first purpose will report the strategies that are effective in managing classroom behavior to promote students’ learning. The second purpose of this study is to look at how different factors (such as school resources) may affect the ability to manage a classroom. Results from the review of the literature indicate that “a threatening and frowning environment hinders [an] effective learning process since hormone excretion as a consequence of stress affects the learning process negatively” (Kayıkçı, 2009, p.1217). These results show that improper classroom management may cause a learning environment that is not adequate for the students’ learning. This study reports the strategies that are effective in managing classroom behavior to promote student learning. This study addressed the following research question: How do teachers create and maintain a positive classroom environment for learning? The data was collected over one academic year in one school in a kindergarten and second grade classroom and analyzed qualitatively. I anticipate the results to show that the way a classroom is managed has an effect on students’ success and the most effective strategies that teachers use to manage their classroom.
