At Mount Pleasant Elementary School, the Responsive Classroom approach to teaching and learning helps create learning environments where children thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. Practical strategies are utilized to bring together social and academic learning throughout the school day, and focus is on classroom management, which increases instructional time while building a caring social community for learning. The Responsive Classroom approach includes daily Morning Meetings, Guided Discovery, Rules with Logical Consequences, Classroom Organization, Academic Choice, and Assessment and Reporting to Parents.
