An effective school is one that is able to achieve its avowed goals and objectives, that of making students excel not only academically but develop them to become socially responsible and psychologically balanced individuals as well. . Taken from the traditional point of view, the purpose of teaching is to ensure that those taught acquire a prescribed body of knowledge and set of values…
In order to achieve this, the kind of learning environment where the child is exposed to is of primary importance.
Making a student learn with so many distractions from the environment poses a problem to many teachers and institutions today. Because of much advancement in technology, parents and schools compete with media and a host of other information providers that catch the learner's attention. How to create a positive environment for learning is a challenge that institutions and education providers greatly face, and is the main focus of this literature review.
Indeed, mounting evidence indicates that a strong relationship exists between Student academic performance and classroom conduct (e.g., Cantwell & Baker, 1987; Delaney & Kaiser, 2001; Kaiser & Hester, 1997). Research also demonstrates that students who do not perform well in class often have an increased incidence of discipline problems (Nelson, Scott, & Polsgrove, 1999). Other classroom factors, such as improper curricular placement, negative management styles, and ineffective instruction, can exacerbate an already difficult situation (Kauffman, 2001). Given these circumstances, it follows that school personnel need to reconsider young adolescents' needs and create a learning environment that contributes to positive behavior as well as academic achievement.
Media headlines appear to suggest that schools today are hotbeds of aggressive and violent behavior. In fact, statistics show that these incidents, fortunately, occur very infrequently, and that schools remain the safest place for middle school students. Nevertheless, school personnel have a responsibility to recognize the effects of lesser yet more predictable misbehaviors on learning, and to take deliberate action to create a positive school environment. There is a growing consensus that a positive and safe learning environment is one that emphasizes cooperation, collaboration, and peaceful existence, and is one that is free from threats of psychological or physical harm--that is, an environment that reflects caring and concern for all students (Manning, 2000).
Drawing upon the accumulated literature, we found evidence that effective learning environments usually:
* Recognize and accept the differences among young adolescents'
physical, psychosocial, and cognitive development, and provide
developmentally appropriate instruction ;
* Place value on gender, sexual orientation, cultural, and linguistic
differences, and provide classroom organization and instructional
approaches that account for these differences ;
* Provide curriculum that enhances young adolescents' acceptance of
self and others, and that enables them to accept differences and
similarities among people ;
* Provide instruction that ensures a high degree of academic
engagement and success for all young adolescents;
* Utilize management procedures that emphasize the idea that students
constitute a community of learners, all of whom should accept (or be
taught to accept) responsibility for their behavior ;
* Pro ...

It posits that an individual’s response to environmental factors constitutes their behavior, and as such, controlling these environmental factors extends further to affecting the individual’s overall behavior (Saccuzzo & Kaplan, 2012). Through this, the theory of operant conditioning is based on the key element of strengthening or reinforcing these factors to yield the desired responses.
Readiness for instance, according to Thorndike’s Elementary Principles of Education, entails an eagerness (physical, mental and emotional) and strong purpose and desire to learn something or a particular subject/ topic on the part of the student. It is vital in the sense that an interested mind makes learning easier and fun, unlike when one has no interest whatsoever and therefore in my view applies directly to my current and future students (Thorndike and Gates, 1929).
Usually, children expand their knowledge through play. Children learn how to interact with others, build up language skills, identify and resolve problems and discover human potential through play. However, play assist children make sense and seek their position in the world.
A summary of the research shall be presented at the end of the paper, which would summarize the research and derive the results from the studied literature.
This paper assesses the unique and complementary ability of childhood intelligence and learning-related behaviour to explain variation in children learning appropriate behaviour both in the society and in the classroom.
The inclusive learner-centred system of classroom instruction is one of the most effective tools for special needs children to be able to feel adjusted into the mainstream social milieu and eventually function as a happy, independent, and productive member of society. This paper establishes best teaching practices that are applied in such a class.
This particular conception i.e. interactive learning environment has evolved appreciably in this modern day context due to an increased level of usage of digital technology as well as virtual communication. The prime objective of an interactive learning environment is to build effective communications.
practiced in most learning environments such as biasness, prejudice, process of intentional and unintentional impositions and entitlement have a strong negative impact on the growth and learning of pupils. These forms of discrimination have a profound negative effect on the
