[ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
This action research project sought to improve the social skills of targeted third-graders. The problem of students exhibiting a lack of social skills was documented by means of student discipline referrals, anecdotal records, and teacher surveys. Evidence indicated that students failed to solve conflicts in positive manners, were unable to work cooperatively in groups, and demonstrated off-task behaviors. Interventions included increased instructional emphasis on cooperative learning, direct instruction in social skills, and direct instruction in conflict resolution. Post-intervention data indicated improvement in students' social skills, reflected in students' ability to work together, resolve conflicts in positive manners, and decrease off-task behaviors. (Six appendices include project handouts and questionnaires. Contains 22 references.) (Author/EV)
