A section of chapter 8 deals with Teacher-Student Interactions and classroom climates.Classroom climate is especially important to me as an Instructor. Although I teach at the college level the classroom is “our” room and I do hold the students responsible for everything that goes on in there. The text talks about different classroom climates: Democratic style, Authoritarian style and Laissez-faire style. The Democratic style is where the Students have more of a participatory role in the decision making process. The Teacher retains final say over all decisions but allows for the students to share their thoughts and ideas. Authoritarian style puts firm limits and controls on the students. Whereas the Laissez-faire style is a "hands off" leadership style because the leader provides little or no direction to the students. I believe that I am a mixture of all three styles.
