Creating a Respectful Classroom Environment

  • Show respect toward your students. They will follow your lead so if you are not respectful they will think it is okay to not be respectful.

“I expect you all to be independent, innovative,

critical thinkers who will do exactly as I say!”

Creating a Respectful Classroom Environment
  • Lay the ground rules and expectations of your class out from day one. Address the issue in the syllabus.
  • Learn student names as quickly as possible so that you can call students by name when you ask or answer questions.
  • Answer everyone’s questions, regardless of their nature or simplicity.
  • Have many channels of communication to be aware of issues that students find disrespectful: encourage after-class and office-hour questions in person; respond promptly to emails; anonymous in-class feedback (3x5 cards); have an anonymous online comment form.

Creating a Respectful Classroom Environment
  • Trying to have student led discussions…A key part of respect is: if they are wrong, not just saying "wrong" and being negative, but pulling any good thought out of that, providing maybe a little hint, and see if they can figure out the correct answer.
  • Gather biographical/anecdotal information from the students at the beginning of the term. Then refer to it throughout the semester on a positive, personalized basis. The students then know they are seen as more than just students.
  • Use the time before class starts to get to know your students and what is going on in their lives. Campus events, other course requirements, spring break / Thanksgiving / winter holiday plans.
  • Listen - give them time to communicate to you their struggles and questions. Let them know that you care about their concerns, questions and their success in your course. Let them know that their opinion matters - respond to their needs and implement their desires within reason.
  • Summary - Be a great role model by setting the
  • example in behavior, attitude and speech.
