Community Lesson

Community is key to a school and classroom. My lesson is centered around getting the students to talk about what community means to them and what they think our classroom community should look like. Since we are born, we are in a community with our family, our neighborhood, our culture all form part of the community we grow up in. When we enter school we are expected to form another community, a school and a classroom community. I want to take what my students value about community along with what the school values and create a strong classroom community where students feel excited to be part of the community.

Guided questions:

1.  What do you think is important to consider in creating community?

2. Why do you think it is important to create a classroom/school community?

3. What do you think community in the classroom looks like?

  1. I love this and I really think the idea of community is vital in the classroom 🙂 I think introducing students to the idea of community and making it something that they understand and are comfortable with, can really help the classroom environment as a whole. Nice work!
