Why do some teachers fail to provide a maximum learning experience for their students? I came up with three different concepts on how I can support my students to attain maximum learning experience in the classroom. One of the reasons why teachers cannot provide a maximum learning experience for their students is because teachers do not spend time exploring their students’ preferred learning style. Some teachers rely heavily on just one teaching style, closing the doors for students who cannot fully learn on one specific teaching style that teachers use. Another reason teachers fail is because they do not build a positive emotions in the classroom. When students feel uncomfortable in class, it would be really difficult for them to learn. Lastly, teachers should encourage cooperative learning, which create a positive relationship between students and promotes group success. To be successful in providing maximum learning experience for the students, teachers should generate positive emotions in the classroom, getting familiar with the students learning styles, and promoting cooperative learning in the class.

Because cooperative learning develops skills stated earlier, I believe that my students would benefit from my class if they learn how to manage and correctly appreciate criticisms. In summary, cooperative learning is one way I can help my students develop their interpersonal skills and build relationships to each other. Works Cited Eric Jensen's Brain Based Learning Theory Book
