The classroom environment is one of the most important factors affecting student learning. Simply put, students learn better when they view their learning environment as positive and supportive. A positive environment is one in which students feel a sense of belonging, trust others, and feel encouraged to tackle challenges, take risks, and ask questions. Such an environment provides relevant content, clear learning goals and feedback, opportunities to build social skills, and strategies to help students succeed; the first stage of changing an environment is changing the external!
The project is an initiative aimed at reclaiming and re-decorating spaces, specifically classrooms, ultimately giving students a sense of ownership, pride, security, and further fostering learning. Through making classrooms more conducive to education- by painting walls, adding educational resources, etc…- we hope to further foster student growth and overall learning! All proceeds from this fundraiser will go to re-decorating 7 shelters run by Chetna NGO - https://chetnango.org
