Community of Learners & Learning Environment

This standard is based on Zaretta Hammond’s Ready for Rigor Framework:

  • create an environment that is intellectually and socially safe for learning
  • make space for student voice and agency
  • build classroom culture and learning around communal (sociocultural) talk and task structures
  • use classroom rituals and routines to support a culture of learning
  • use principles of restorative justice to manage conflicts and redirect negative behavior
