Abstract

The purpose of this action project was to explore how students were able to successfully and independently use classroom resources to help them during independent work during reading and math. A total of 17 third grade students from a suburban school were used to collect data on resources used during independent work time. Data was collected through a teacher observation journal, student interviews, and student surveys. High achieving students were found to be more independent, self-regulatory learners. The most commonly used resource during independent work time, for all students, was peer assistance. Findings also indicated that students need to be taught more explicitly how to use available resources in the classroom for assistance during independent work time.
