In the Marshall Memo from this past December 30th, there is a good point made about setting a positive atmosphere in the classroom straight away. He cites an article which says that students can sense the intellectual and emotional climate of a class and will act accordingly. Knowing that a teacher’s vibe sets the tone for the class, reminds us that as people we have the power to set the tone of the environment in which we find ourselves. Be it our own homes or our workplaces, we have the power to create a fitting atmosphere with which to foster success, and can use this knowledge to the benefit of everyone we meet!
