An Analysis of the Effects of Types of Afterschool Program Participation on Elementary Student Academic Performance

Mazar, Chelsea Elizabeth 09 July 2012 (has links) (PDF)
Afterschool programs are seen as a solution to many of the problems facing our educational system today. In particular, afterschool programs are intended to help low income and at-risk students improve their academic performance. However, all afterschool programs are not created equally. Programs differ in the amount of time students participate, the length of time the program has operated, the types of activities offered, and programs vary depending on the school in which they operate. This paper will demonstrate the ways in which afterschool programs differ and the subsequent impact on academic achievement. Additionally, it will highlight the need for more focused regional analysis of the impact of afterschool programs on academic achievement.

The Relationship between Social Networks, Exchange and Kids’ Food in Children’s Peer Culture

Melton, Stephanie Tillman 20 November 2015 (has links)
This study investigates children’s peer culture, social networks and the role that kids’ food plays in peer exchanges during middle childhood. During this stage children develop social competencies as they join peer groups with other children and become socialized into children’s peer culture. In order to immerse myself within children’s culture, I conducted ethnographic fieldwork at two afterschool programs providing care for elementary school children. I investigated friendships, social networks and exchanges among third through fifth grade children at the programs. The study included participant observation and participatory group interviews with a sample of the children at both sites. The findings reveal how children use exchange of snack foods, candy and toys to build social connections among peers. The results indicate that children are active participants and creators in their peer cultures. They manipulated adult norms to structure oppositional identities as children. One tool for identifying with peers and gaining social acceptance are kids’ foods, which are processed food items marketed for children. Kids’ food served as a form of social currency in expressing friendship and connection. For the children in this study, food provided for edible consumption, entertainment and symbolic connection to peers. The results of this research demonstrate the need to approach child nutrition promotion from a cultural and social view point of children, not only based on physical and health motivation.
