Description

For my self-study, I chose to focus on the impact parental involvement has not only on my students but also myself. Growing up, my parents played an active role in my education. In this self- study, my goal was to discover the correlation between parental involvement outside of school and its effects on learning inside the classroom. Because of COVID, parents weren't allowed in the school building. To gather my data, first grade students at Oaklyn Elementary School completed weekly activities with their families. Students completed academic-based activities and activities primarily for fun. Through my findings, I discovered academic and social growth among my students in addition to stronger communication and parental support between myself and families.
