Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Creating a Caring and Inclusive Community: Analyzing Effectiveness of a Social Emotional Learning Program at the Classroom Level
by López, Maria Fernanda, Ed.Sp., California State University, Long Beach, 2020, 103; 27835127
Abstract (Summary)

This mixed methods study examined the effects of the implementation of an abbreviated SEL program, Caring School Community (CSC-A) on students’ attendance data, students’ office discipline referral data, and students’ perceptions of safety and well-being. School-based data for two groups of students, in 12 classrooms---from a K-8 school in a large Southern California district---were examined. The students in the intervention group received CSC-A for 15 weeks while the other group served as a comparison group. Qualitative results indicated that students who received 15 weeks of CSC-A reported higher perceptions of safety and well-being than students in the comparison group. Overall, there were no statistically significant findings for the effects of CSC-A implementation on students’ attendance, students’ office discipline referrals and students’ perceptions of safety and well-being. Limitations and areas for future research are discussed.
