Abstract

Building Relationships On and Off Screen

Katie Connelly and Leah Nillas

Educational Studies, Illinois Wesleyan University

The purpose of my research is identifying how to build relationships with students both virtually and in-person. My student teaching experience is unique in that it was constantly evolving. My time as a student teacher was divided into two settings, virtual teaching and in-person teaching. Virtual teaching consisted of a 23 student classroom, many students begin at or below grade level standards in reading and math. The majority of students also received accommodations in the form of IEPs and 501 Plans. Once we began in-person instruction, my classroom consisted of 8 students, 5 of which I had never worked with before.

The research I have gathered thus far consists of copious field notes, lesson plans, and scholarly edited research articles. Each data source was chosen to help find correlations between the growth in relationships within the classroom as well as finding ways that teachers can improve engagement as a result of this relationship building.

This study is significant because although there is ample research on building relationships within classrooms in-person, there is little research detailing how to promote this relationship building via virtual classroom settings. I chose this topic as my research question because I hope to inform and support future student teachers as many of them may also student teach virtually.
