Teaching Emotional Smarts to Boost Academic Success
MetadataShow full item record
Academic achievement has been the driving force of education since its inception. However, the incorporation of emotional identification and development to assist in the increase of academic success has recently been identified and addressed. This study will examine third-grade students from various backgrounds, academic development, and emotional awareness. Two emotional regulation interventions, a “mood scale” and a “think moment” were implemented to assist academic success and emotional awareness of the students. These five assessments were utilized: i-Ready Assessments, weekly journal prompts, class meetings, student surveys, and observation of students. Based on i-Ready Assessment data, student participation, and responses the interventions increased academic scores. Making students aware of what they are feeling can help them in all areas of their lives.
