Recess is more affective when scheduled before lunch.Slide3
Literature ReviewJarrett and fellow researchers (1998) found a significant difference between 4
th graders when they had recess than when the same students went without. They were on task 90% of the time with recess and 85% of the time without.Barros, Silver and Stein (2009) found that teachers ranked 8 and 9 year olds with recess to be better behaved in the classroom than those that did not have recess.Slide4
Methods - ParticipantsSchools currently DO NOT have recess
10 schools totalSchools selected to vary geographically and based on school type (K-12, 7-12, 5-8)
The researchers will randomly assign all seventh and eighth graders in five of the schools to either a recess or non-recess group for the entire year.Slide7
Methods – Design Part 2In the other five schools, all students will have recess or no-recess based on a random rotating schedule.
Methods – Data collectionAcademic Achievement: Stanford Achievement Test and GPA
