Title

Supporting Students in the Elementary Classroom Through Action Research

Description

This presentation will address two current issues in elementary school classrooms explored during student teaching placements, including noise level and repeated absences. Both projects addressed supporting students in learning as the ultimate goal. In addressing this, we have incorporated a review of pertinent literature and implementation of strategies to support our findings drawn as a result of our interventions. In a third grade classroom where quieting the class down in a timely manner called for improvement, the reduction in noise level was measured after applying auditory, visual, technological, and active responses. In a Kindergarten classroom where separation from family caused repeated absences for a number of students, strategies were implemented in attempt to encourage more consistent attendance. For instance, allowing students to bring comfort objects and creating consistency through check-in routines, as well as keeping attendance.
