Topic Introduction

“The student who sets out with such a spirit of perseverance will surely find success and realization at last.”
Swami Vivekananda

There is much more that occurs in a classroom beyond the acquisition of academic knowledge. In this topic we will focus on social issues which affect student learning, teaching style decisions, classroom management techniques and ultimately the way you create professional student-teacher relationships. While it may seem as if these situations ‘won’t happen in my class’ rest assured they most certainly will – the question is whether or not you’ll realize it.
