In the learning process at the classroom, the teachers' teaching practice contributes significantly to the students' academic achievement. One of the aspects of teaching practice, teachers' positive expectation towards students, has been proved to play important roles in improving students' academic performance. However, in fact, many students especially low achieving students believed that they were not treated accordingy. This study was conducted with the following purposes: (1) to improve the teachers' positive expectations towards their students, especially low academic achieving students, and (2) to prosper the positive perception of students regarding their relationships with their teachers, classroom climate, and their academic ability. This study was designed as an action research. Although the results could only be observed in improving the classroom climate, and not yet on the understanding learning materials and improving thinking skills, but implementation of the program on a longer­ term and more intensive feedback session could bring more valuable results regarding teaching effectiveness.
