Wise Interventions: How Brief Social-Psychological Interventions Can Help Raise Students' Achievement Far Into the Future
In recent years, several studies (randomized controlled trials) have shown that brief interventions to change how students think and feel in school, often lasting an hour or less, can lead to improvements in academic performance over months and years and help solve persistent problems in education like achievement gaps. With a particular focus on interventions to address students' feelings of social-belonging in school, I will discuss the key psychological experiences targeted by these interventions, how it is possible to change these processes to improve students' academic performance far into the future, and recent efforts to deliver these interventions at scale to large numbers of students.
