“This exploratory study examined the contribution of the RC Approach over a two-year period. The RC Approach integrates social and academic learning in order to produce classroom environments that are conducive to learning by integrating social and academic learning. Two questions are addressed. First, how does teachers’ use of RC practices contribute to children’s academic and social growth? Second, how is the relation between teachers’ use of RC practices and children’s academic and social growth moderated by the presence of environmental adversity in the home?”
