Action Research: Classroom Management & School Culture:
A Trip to Remember
Research Summary

ABSTRACT:

As a kindergarten teacher, one of this researcher’s main struggles is figuring out how to form a classroom community where all children feel accepted and valued regardless of social, economic, and neighborhood background. Focusing on the question, “If children are given the opportunity to share common experiences, does it enhance their sense of belonging?” the researcher interviewed her class and followed through on a 'wish list' of field trips to different locations in Madison in an effort to enhance a shared sense of belonging and value among the children.
