Responsive classes research

Fifth graders in schools where teachers faithfully used the Responsive Classroom teaching approach performed better on statewide assessments of mathematics and reading skills than their peers at schools that did not use the social-emotional-learning program's strategies as much, according to new research. Responsive Classroom focuses on teacher language and modeling expectations, describing itself as an approach to learning rather than a program.
