Reflection: Trust and Respect Solar Oven (Part 1/2) - Section 2: Build A Solar Oven


Collaborating with peers is a real world skill. To build a successful learning community in your classroom you need to develop a culture for learning by weaving in trust and respect. It takes work. It takes thoughtful effort. It happens over a period of time.

How did I create a successful learning community in my classroom? I focus on these skills each day by implementing a variety of strategic activities and experiences that cultivate trust and respect. Here are some activities to build trust and respect in your classoom:

  • engage in trust activities
  • design activities for students to freely share their thoughts and ideas like a Turn and Talk
  • create group problem-solving experiences like an inquiry, experiment, or a STEM/engineering challenge


Establish peer connections and build a learning community by implementing trust and respect activities in your classroom.
