An Analysis of STEMS^2 Curriculum: The Impact of Participation in a Garden Club on Student Self-Efficacy


The purpose of my research is to study whether the implementation of my designed interdisciplinary curriculum through a Garden Club after school program will allow the enrolled second grade students the opportunity to increase their levels of self-efficacy as a learner and social self-efficacy while collaboratively working with their peers. The reason for focusing my research around students developing their learner and social self-efficacy levels is because it is important that students are confident in their own abilities, self-efficacy can be an indicator of student success, and this is year one of implementing the Garden Club after school program at a Hawai‘i public elementary school. I investigated students’ levels of self-efficacy at the beginning of the program and compared them to those at the conclusion of the after school program.
