The Relationship between Middle Grade Student Belonging and Middle Grade Student Performance
Faust, Phyllis B.; Ennis, Leslie S.; Hodge, William M.
Alabama Journal of Educational Leadership, v1 p43-54 Sep 2014
This study examined the relationship between a middle school initiative to develop student voice, interpersonal relationships, and intrapersonal relationships and students' sense of belonging. The literature indicated a strong connection between students' sense of belonging in school and positive outcomes in and out of the classroom (Deci & Knowles, 2008). The design compared changes in students' perceptions across time. The subjects were 187 male and 156 female sixth-grade students in a suburban school system during the 2011-2012 academic school year. Results indicated a decline in students' perceptions related to teacher and peer support, overall satisfaction, and academic competence.
