Abstract

This action research project was designed to have the majority of middle school students engage in healthy relationships with their peers and teachers as the data suggested the need for improved interactions with others. Students contributed to team building lessons; implemented school community service learning projects; participated in an advisory mentoring program on healthy relationships and conflict resolution; and wrote journal reflections. Analysis of the data indicated an increased rate of students demonstrating and acknowledging the need for positive attributes to build healthy relationships with their peers and teachers.
