Following our recent blog post on Responsive Classroom at ACS Cobham, we wanted to share with you a break down of Responsive Language – one of the key elements working within the Responsive Classroom approach.
To recap – Responsive Classroom (RC) is an approach to teaching that empowers students, through methods that allow them to be a part of their own learning. This is demonstrated through an increase in student choice, collaboration between students and teachers in forming class rules and an awareness of students developmental age.
Teacher language is an important part of RC, and can be broken into three categories: reinforcing, reminding and redirecting language.
Responsive classroom (RC) is an approach to education implemented across the whole of Early Childhood and Lower School at ACS Cobham that we have found to be incredibly beneficial.
Responsive classroom is based on research and evidence that has been developed using controlled studies. The results have suggested greater student achievement, improved teaching and an overall better atmosphere within RC schools. Here is our guide to implementing RC and the benefits of doing so.
