In the present study, the effects of teacher-directed guidance activities on transescents' sense of belonging were examined. Students in the treatment group participated in a teacher-directed guidance activity daily for two weeks. Students in the control group did not participate in the activities. A Likert scale pretest was given to both groups to measure their sense of belonging in the classroom before the study. The posttest was administered to both groups after the experimental treatment to see if the guidance activities had increased the experimental group's sense of belonging and to see if the control group's sense of belonging remained unchanged. No statistically significant difference was found between the pretests and posttest scores.
