Examining the Use of Bibliotherapy in a Third Grade Classroom
Elley, Sara
Texas Journal of Literacy Education, v2 n2 p91-97 Win 2014
This six-week biliotherapy study was developed to determine if using children's literature books to help students think about, understand, and work through social and emotional issues helped third grade students' develop more social and emotional skills (Sullivan & Strang, 2002). Data collection included pre- and post-surveys, interruption tally charts, pre-and post-sociograms, class meeting videos, student work, and a teacher-research journal. Findings revealed that students had a more accepting attitude of their classmates, had a significant decrease in interruptions, and had an overall growth in their social and emotional skills.
