Parent Involvement in 3rd Grade Special Education
Batt, Christine
Online Submission
The focus of this study was to investigate how parent involvement impacts student motivation in third grade special education. The study was conducted at Allen Elementary in Genoa, Ohio during the spring of 2011. After reviewing recent literature, it acknowledges the importance of parent participation on student academic education, the effects of parental involvement, teacher/parent communication, and how it motivates a special education third grader. The data collection instruments consisted of parent and teacher surveys, journals, questionnaires, and pre/post tests. The data collected indicates that students felt more motivated when their parents took an active role in their child's education. Also, parents are willing to participate in school activities if they feel welcomed and valued from the classroom teacher. Appended are: (1) Data Collection Matrix; (2) Student Survey--Animal Unit; (3) Teacher Checklist; (4) Parent Questionnaire; (5) Parent Survey; and (6) Colleague Survey. (Contains 2 figures.)
