Responsive Classroom teacher language is the professional use of words, phrases, tone, and pace to enable students to engage in active, interested learning; be contributing members of a positive learning community; and develop positive behaviors. It includes reinforcing, reminding, redirecting, and envisioning language. These types of language rest on a deep and abiding faith in the goodness in children, a belief in their desire and ability to learn. It also rests on faith in teachers’ ability to teach and bring out the best in children.
