Creating Effective Learning Environments

December 1, 2002

This compilation represents a first attempt to gather the necessary resources. Its broad sections - building capacity, strengthening and meeting student needs- reflect three of the primary recommendations of the Learning Environment workgroup. The subsections under each of these broad categories respond to specific gaps and high-priority issues identified by workgroup members - issues like smoothing transitions into high school, providing high-quality professional development on effective learning environments, and addressing the needs of students who pose chronic challenges to school discipline and safety polices.
