Using Socialization to Increase Academic Skills in a Pre-School Classroom
Saunders, Ashley N.
Online Submission
Recent research has shown that students who enter kindergarten with prior academic knowledge are more successful later in their school careers. Yet, pre-school teachers face the problem of limited time in a day to focus on the academic skills of students, as well as work on their basic needs. The goal of this study was to find out if students can increase their academic skills by developing socialization skills. The study consisted of quantitative and qualitative research with questionnaires given to parents, student interviews, and student observations. The conclusion of the study is that the more students interact with each other the better they perform academically. (Contains 2 figures.)
