Self-regulated strategy development (SRSD) has extensive evidence of improving student writing; however, few studies have investigated the relative importance of specific self-regulation components in SRSD. Twelve students in Grades 5 to 7 were assigned to one of two, 5-week SRSD conditions for persuasive writing that differed in instruction on…

The aim of this exploratory study was to examine fourth to eighth graders' conceptualizations of kindness at school (i.e., their definition of kindness, an example of an act of kindness they have done, who they see as the most salient adult agent of kindness, and which location they deem that kindness happens most). To date, kindness research has…
