Capstone Project Title
The research question that this capstone project addressed was, What does social-emotional learning look like in the high school special education setting, and how does it benefit students with Emotional or Behavioral Disorders? The research conducted encompassed social-emotional learning theory, special education - the category of emotional or behavioral disorders, and adolescent development. After a number of recent studies done on adolescent students who received social-emotional skill building were read and documented, it was determined that social-emotional learning instruction is beneficial for high school students receiving special education services under the category of emotional or behavioral disorders. Following the research, a social-emotional learning curriculum unit was developed that can be used in direct service classrooms for students receiving services in the category of emotional or behavioral disorders.
