Abstract

Social well-being is an active part of every students life in the classroom. The importance of fitting in with one's peers and having a pleasant experience in school is vital for students to learn well. I was given the chance to observe fourth grade student interactions during classroom work and decipher how it influenced the environment and relationships within that environment. In this qualitative study I look at the impact of different variables in the classroom such as seating arrangements, peer relationships, collaborative work, and how interactions between students influences their social well-being in the classroom. Through analysis of supporting literature and a critical analysis of the field notes, lesson plans, and student interactions I created and observed while student teaching. This study aims to find strategies that teachers can use to create the best environment for their students not only for learning but also for growing as young men and women.
