On the Road to Social and Emotion Learning at Temple Hill Academy
Dr. John Murphy created a learning environment that is comfortable and welcoming to learning for his scholars. Throughout the year, Dr. Murphy provided short stories and videos to help his students reflect and learn about their own social emotional well-being. The curated space provides soft lighting, various styles of comfortable seating, water bottles, as well as an exercise station that helps develop balance and core muscles. Dr. Murphy's scholars know they are free to move about from station to station as they do their Spanish work. They do their oral work easily as they balance and cycle. Dr. Murphy has also repurposed music stands so the stations can be utilized while students work on their Chromebooks!
Some examples of lessons they learned can be found here.
The space is welcoming for all scholars in Dr. Murphy's classes and is often welcoming to friends of those students!
