When there is a positive teacher-student relationship, students feel safe and there is a strong bond of trust within the classroom. Students are not afraid to take risks and understand that making errors are all part of the learning process. Students are more likely to feel positive about school and have a greater chance of developing a true love for learning.

One of the goals of teaching is to help students understand and retain what they learned in class. Retention rate here refers to the amount of information retained from a lesson. The lower the rate, the less the person remembers about the lesson, thus the higher the rate, the greater chance the student has in retaining or recalling the information. As explained in Part I, one way to increase retention rates is by activating more regions of the brain. One of the easiest ways to do this, is to teach the lesson to someone else, thereby elaborating on what they had just learned.
The ultramodern, $160 million environs of the Wiseburn High School campus, home of Da Vinci Schools, in Los Angeles will serve as the backdrop for the 2018 EdShift Conference taking place Monday, April 9. It will also be an exemplar of the event’s focus for this year – the effects of High-Impact (Humanized) Learning Environments on K-12 education. During the one-day conference, attendees will take a guided tour of the 210,000-square-foot space and hear from instructional experts as well as guest speaker, Marshall Tuck, candidate for California state superintendent.
