Teacher Perspectives on the Effect Caring for Classroom Plants has on Adolescents
MetadataShow full item record
This project attempted to answer the research question: "Do teachers who have incorporated a plant care program into their classroom notice caring for classroom plants affects student behavior and mood?" Teachers in a mid-sized urban school district were invited to take a survey to gather their opinions on the effects of a plant care program on student mood and behavior. Responses were collected anonymously and information was analyzed to determine whether teachers believed there was or was not an effect on the behavior and mood of students who participate in a plant care program. Each teacher noted no change or somewhat better change in behavior or mood of students participating in a plant care program. In some areas, teachers noted a much better change in behavior or mood. This information may be used to help other teachers who may be considering having a plant care program in their classroom.
