The Responsive Classroom Approach Information for Parents

The Responsive Classroom approach is a way of teaching that creates a safe, challenging, and joyful classroom and school wide climate for all students. Teachers who use the Responsive Classroom approach understand that all of students’ needs—academic, social, emotional, and physical—are important. We encourage you to review our document on the Responsive Classroom.
