An educational need that exists in today's classrooms is to have a strong connection between the teacher and students and students with their peers in order to facilitate a real sense of collaboration by building relationships which help to strenthen the classroom learning community. The goal that will be addressed during this lesson is to develop a classroom community through the use of activities including, small and large group discussions, role playing, visuals and on-line collaboration in the form of classroom blogging.

What stood out to me were the different opportunities for students to be involved in this lesson. For example, students work in different groups, role play, and use technology to create a collaborative classroom environment. This lessons allows students to take ownership over their contribution to the classroom environment.

This is a thorough lesson plan designed to help teachers build a learning community in their classroom. I appreciate that student interaction varies during the course of this lesson including whole-group discussion and small-group problem-solving. Students experience community acitivites throughout their lives, and a learning community should be no different.
