Impact of a counseling program based on social emotional learning toward reducing math anxiety in middle school students
Impact of a counseling program
This study investigated the impact of a counseling program based on social emotional learning in reducing math anxiety in middle school students. The sample consisted of 207 males and females from 7th and 8th grade students deliberately selected from Jordanian private schools, and randomly distributed equally into two groups: the experimental group (which was taught by the counseling program) and the control group (which was taught by the traditional method). To achieve the goals of the study, the researchers prepared math anxiety tests that had been verified for validity and reliability. The results of the study showed the superiority of the experimental group in reducing math anxiety, and that there were no differences between average scales of males and females in math anxiety. In light of the results of the study, the researchers recommend the use of a counseling program based on social emotional learning, to reduce math anxiety among middle school students.
