Teaching requires a structured and safe environment in which students can learn. The teacher actively engages the student’s curiosity through student-to-teacher, student-to-content, and student-to-student interaction. When students feel comfortable in the learning environment and they are challenged in the content area, they usually thrive. The student should be learning at or near their instructional level.
