In a study published by the DeBruyn Institute for Teaching Excellence and Kansas State University, Voices From the Field, teachers, principals, and superintendents all agreed on the number one characteristic of a Master Teacher: That he or she creates the environment that advances student learning.

How does a teacher create this kind of environment? Drawing from research by The Kettering Foundation that examined the elements of climate and culture, we have provided teachers with the following 35 lessons aligned with the categories of Respect, Trust, Caring, Continuous Academic and Social Growth, Opportunity for Input/Ownership, High Morale, and Cohesiveness. Each lesson is followed by a journaling activity.
