Educational environments: evaluation, antecedents, and consequences
Does classroom environment affect student learning? Do school environments affect teacher job satisfaction? What impact does a new curriculum or new teaching methods have on a classroom environment? Indeed, what are the determinants of classroom or school environments? Although classroom or school environment is a somewhat subtle concept, remarkable progress has been made in researching its evaluation and its antecedents and consequences. Educational Environments considers the major thrusts of research over the last two decades with a general overview and a look at particular research programmes and specific research studies. Contemporary studies from around the world demonstrate the merits of combining qualitative and quantitative methods within the same study, linking classroom, school and home environments, and incorporating educational environment ideas into school psychology and teacher education programmes.
