In this course, you will learn how the relationship between school connectedness and school climate play a role in creating a positive teaching and learning environment.
School connectedness, the belief held by students that adults and peers in the school care about their learning as well as about them as individuals, is an important protective factor. Research shows that young people who feel connected to their school are less likely to engage in many risky behaviors, including early sexual initiation, alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use, and violence and gang involvement. Students who feel connected to their school are also more likely to have higher grades and test scores—along with having better school attendance—and stay in school longer.
Learners will explore:
- the seven factors associated with school connectedness.
- how education support professionals support positive school climate and bully prevention
- school climate and culture and how to conduct a school climate survey
