Reflect of classroom culture

The classroom culture that I would like to promote is one where the students are curious and willing to learn. One where students are actively engaged to better themselves through education. As a middle school teacher I’ve had students that have already been turned off to learning for one reason or another. It is extremely difficult to get them to see the benefit in education once this has happened. If a student sees soomething as too difficult they may not even attempt to try for fear of failing.
