Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The need for children to be actively involved in learning has become more obvious and prevalent in the elementary school. The difficulty seen in my inner city school of 650 students in pre-school through sixth grade is that while there is, indeed, a lot of activity occurring in classrooms, the most needy students are not the ones who are actively involved. While most students are actively learning, some students purposely try to disengage themselves from learning (Vacca & Padak, 1990). At the same time teachers are trying to engage them in the learning process so that they will understand and comprehend the material presented.
