Table of Contents


       The goal of teaching is to provide effective instruction that leads to student learning.  That goal depends on a safe and supportive environment in which teachers can teach and students can learn. 

       An effective environment for teaching and learning can be created by maximizing the amount of dedicated time for instruction and learning.

       There are key variables which when in place allows instructional time on task to increase and learning time maximized with minimal problem behaviors:
  • Effective curriculum planning,
  • Systemic assessment,
  • Effective strategies for delivering instruction,
  • Procedures for preventing and responding to student problem behavior.

Effective Learning Environment Traditional schooling is based on an educational paradigm that has been around since the turn of the century.
