Don Glover has an interesting view point as he outlined his 10 suggestions for creating a positive learning environment. Although this article is written by a sports coach, it focuses more on creating an emotional connection to the students and the psychomotor domain vs exercise and game strategies. The key point I picked out and will try to bring into my classroom is to teach “Character Education”. This focused on the fundamentals of respect, honesty, established tolerances and discipline were needed. If an instructor can instill these characteristics into the learners a positive learning environment will be a very likely outcome.
