Capstone Project Title
Danyelle Fisher and Maggie Kiley
The research question investigated in this project was: How can read-alouds support the learning of primary-aged students who have been affected by early childhood trauma? The experiences of teaching students affected by trauma without a social-emotional curriculum led the author to research how interactive read alouds help students become familiar with social-emotional skills. The research showed how social-emotional learning linked with interactive read alouds can be successful in assisting students in regulating their emotions. The author created ten interactive read-aloud lessons that introduce key social-emotional skills. The topics included in the lessons are self-awareness and self-management. There are six subskills under these two topics: identifying emotions, recognizing strengths, self-confidence, impulse control, stress management, and self-motivation. The author used Understanding by Design to create the curriculum. This curriculum aims to provide teachers with social-emotional lessons to teach during literacy to expose students to these important skills. Word Count:
