Encouraging the Development of Key Life Skills in Elementary School‐Age Children
A Literature Review and Recommendations to the Tauck Family Foundation.
This working paper addresses three key questions:
- What life skills have been identified in the research literature as contributing to success for elementary school students?
- To what extent does the development of those skills contribute to long‐term success?
- Are those skills malleable—that is, can social programs help young people develop and strengthen those skills?
