Examined the association of work-related skills--such as listening skills, cooperation, self-control--to academic outcomes at kindergarten entry and end of second grade. Found that work-related skills predicted variance in academic outcomes at both times, after kindergarten academic score and background variables were controlled. Children with poor work-related skills differed from overall sample on several variables. (Author/KB)
