o create an optimal environment for learning, we must consider more than just the furniture. Our brain is influenced by aromas in the room, music playing, and even the number of plants that populate the space. Describe a time from your own learning experience that was influenced in either a negative or positive way by the physical learning environment. Using examples from the course materials, describe your optimal environment for learning. Be sure to explain why you would include or exclude particular elements. In addition to the Willis and Mitchell (2014) textbook, Chapter 5 of the Given text and Chapter 6 of the Jensen text may also be useful.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts and compare their learning experiences to your own. Suggest how you may have responded in their situation. Provide additional recommendations for creating the optimal environment for learning. Let them know how you would be influenced by what they have included in their optimal environment.
IN AN ATTACHED FILE I WILL INCLUDE THE WEEKS RESOURCES. IN A SECOND FILE I WILL INCLUDE THE STUDENTS POSTS THAT YOU ARE TO RESPOND TO. ONE PAGE IS TO BE DEDICATED TO THE INITIAL DISCUSSION POST, AND THE OTHER PAGE IS TO BE DEDICATED TO THE RESPONSES OF TWO OTHER STUDENTS POSTS FROM THE ATTACHED FILE.

The ideal classroom environment for me would be one where there is an area where you can sit on big fluffy pillows and a rocking chair for the teacher to sit in to read to the students. It would also have an area where if you wanted to listen to soft music while you studied in headphones you could. I think a corner where there is a little color and some shelving with plants like lavender and rosemary on the top shelf and books on the other shelves adds some aroma, a rug on the floor adds a place where you can pick a book and plop on the carpet and read quietly. I would make sure that there is not faded old posters on the walls. If the paint was an ugly institutional color I will find ways to liven up the room just enough to not be overpowering to those who brilliant colors bother, but bright enough where it doesn’t make students feel depressed.
