Description

Being self-aware and making smart decisions are important skills for elementary students. By teaching students to be self-aware, they are able to learn positive habits that will remain with them throughout the rest of their schooling. This study was conducted to provide teachers with practical ways to guide students to be self-aware and promote pro-social behavior within the classroom. Pro-social behavior is when a student displays voluntary actions that are intended to help or benefit another individual or group of individuals. Using slight behavior modifications to promote pro-social behavior, students were given opportunities to play a role in their learning. Data was collected in a first-grade classroom over the course of one semester. The main data sources collected were field notes, teacher observations, anecdotal records, student work, reflections, and lesson plans.
