The purpose of this study is to investigate whether a recess-based social skills intervention can be used to teach children social skills, which they can then generalize to the classroom. Research questions include the following: 1. To what extent will the recess-based social skills intervention increase the rate of positive social behaviors as measured by direct observations in the classroom setting? 2. To what extent will the recess-based social skills intervention decrease the rate of negative social behaviors as measured by direct observations in the classroom setting? 3. To what extent will the effects of the recess-based social skills intervention generalize outside of the intervention setting to the classroom setting as measured by direct observation of positive and negative social skills?
