For my action to research class, I have conducted research on student behavior in my student teaching classroom. To do this, I asked the question "how do morning meetings guided by social emotional questions rather than casual talking questions affect student behavior?". To answer this question, I observed four students during whole group instruction, small group instruction, and through daily activities and kept track of their behavior with a behavior chart where I took notes about each student and their behavior throughout each day.

I am a student teacher at VU with goals of having positive and meaningful relationships with my students. I have had multiple experiences with different student behaviors and wanted to see how different morning meeting questions might affect how a student responds to certain daily tasks and emotions that follow.
