Effects of Social Skill Instruction
Calhoun, Trish
Online Submission
This research proposal is a mixed method action research project. Social problems in the school setting can affect students negatively. This project will see if explicit instruction reduces conflict and increase confidence to handle problems. The participants are 46, 2nd grade students. Quantitative and qualitative data are collected in this research project to determine the correlation between social skill instruction and social problems in school. A phenomenological data technique is used to analyze the qualitative data from an open-ended question about a possible scenario in school. The project found a correlation between instruction and increased student confidence with dealing with social problems. The project found no decrease in social problems. The next step would be to hold a teacher in-service project to possibly eliminate misunderstanding in the student observation portion of the project. The unit of study can be viewed at 87A215051BEC94C8D26E3E3295843942. An appendix includes: (1) Letter of Consent; (2) Student Observation Chart; and (3) Student Survey.
