Cross-Institutional Collaboration ; Collaborated with Steve Asher and teachers and administrators at Central Park School for Children to pilot a research project, FRIENDSHIP AND ACCEPTANCE IN A DEMOGRAPHICALLY MIXED ELEMENTARY SCHOOL POPULTATION: DEVELOPING ASSESSMENT AND PILOT INTERVENTIONS. This project proposes to (1) use reliable measures of friendship, peer acceptance, and loneliness to learn about how diverse groups of children who are newly-entering school are adjusting, and (2) pilot project-based classroom interventions to facilitate friendship and acceptance in a school that is deliberately diversifying its student population.
