Qualities in a Good and Ideal Classroom

Updated on March 23, 2012

A Classroom is a place where individuals gather for the purpose of learning and studying. The classroom may be of a primary school, an elementary school, a college or a university - but the purpose remains the same. In order to get the most of the learning process, there are certain standards that a classroom should meet.

A classroom should be in a way where students can comfortably spend their time, getting the most of their study and where teachers can be at comfort too, to provide the sublime education. Without proper configuration and set-up, an ideal classroom cannot be made.

Qualities Of A Good Classroom:

A good classroom should meet the following standards:

  • The classroom should be equipped with proper seating; both quantity and quality wise.
  • The number of students should not exceed beyond the teacher’s ability to pay attention to.
  • There should be good ventilation of air, so one does not feel succumbed and may pay full attention.
  • The architecture should be able to maintain healthy temperatures. Too much cold or too much heat will distract students mind and will wear down the teacher as well.
  • There should be audio and visual facilities to aid better understanding of the subject.
  • Less colors and only necessary items will minimize the distraction of the pupils.
  • The positive usage of the available technologies may also prove to be of great help.
  • In pre-primary, primary or elementary schools, their should be physical-interaction-activities with relevant subjects for better understanding and engrossing the interest of students.

A classroom should be made like a place where students get the urge to grow and develop themselves professionally and mentally. They should be comfortable, at fully ease and should be provided with a chance to study under a highly disciplined and well-facilitated place. It increases their efficiencies exponentially and moreover, a good classroom also does facilitate the teacher in various ways.

      @Sueswan: Thank you for your feedback. And indeed it is vital, that the environment of a class affects directly on the output of students and the teachers as well.

      A very interesting and informative hub.

      Our environment certainly does have an effect on our learning.

      Totally agreed. And when teachers do not feel comfortable, the whole class is disturbed.

      True about classrooms. Too much crowding; no air, too hot or cold, are not conducive to learning anything. It's hard on the teacher, too. It gives the teacher even greater obstacles to overcome. Good hub.

      Mrs. Terrbile Bush only wanted Children to read read and read, excuse me here but her useless husband allowed her to changed the school intructions with No One Left Behind. Which actually did leave kids behind because math ect. got forgotten.

      @Writer20: I did not know about the down-fall you are mentioning. Though it is sad if in any part of the world, education suffers. Because nations can only survive with quality education and the youth of any nation works as a pillar of glory for that country.

      @Nan Mynatt:

      Yep. Indeed very true. As I am a teacher, I can see that mediocre classroom environment often distracts students and they just cannot pay attention. It leads them to awful results and ultimately de-motivation, without the actual reason being identified at all.

      I voted you up on this one. I hope that people read your hub and follow the directions on how a classroom should be. Most students can't learn unless their surroundings are inviting to learning.
