21 Applied Research: Connectedness & Schools  School connectedness is lower in schools with difficult classroom management climates.  The overall level of school connectedness is lower in schools that temporarily expel students for relatively minor infractions  When students are permanently expelled for the first occurrence of an infraction, connectedness is lower still.  Students in schools with harsh discipline policies report feeling less safe at school than in schools with moderate policies.  On average, students in smaller schools feel more attached to school than students in larger schools.  Co-curriculars are a significant predictor of connectedness.

22 Teacher Interpersonal Skills Student Achievement is Directly Related to a Teacher’s Interpersonal Skills  A teacher’s interpersonal skills are crucial to creating/maintaining a positive working climate.  Two Dimensions of Communication Dominance-Submission(Influence) Cooperation-Opposition(Proximity)

23 Applied Research: Co-Curriculars Students who participate in structured extracurricular activities, are likely to have:  Higher academic achievement  Higher levels of commitment to school  Higher levels of attachment to school Additionally...  Schools that encourage students to participate in after-school programs show significant declines in discipline problems and dropout rates.
