BROKEN BONDS

Cianna Robertson & Madison Kipta

BROKEN BONDS
Is

it reasonable to believe
that divorce has an
impact on a students
ability to learn?
How is the attachment
theory associated with
divorce?

ATTACHMENT THEORY
Attachment

is a deep and enduring


emotional bond that connects one
person to another across time and
space (Ainsworth, 1973; Bowlby,
1969).
The attachment between a child
and an adult is vital in their ability
to learn. A lack of attachment or
bonding will affect their emotional,
physical, social and cognitive ability.

OUR INQUIRY

POSITIVE IMPACTS
Although

resources tend to focus


on the harmful effects, it is also
apparent that an unhappy
marriage can be more detrimental
than divorce on both the parents
and children (Baker, pg. 153).

Prevents

children from being in


violent or substance abuse
situations.

POSTIVE IMPACTS
Parents

working together to
accommodate what is best for
the child.

Children

are educated about

divorce
they know why their parents are not
together and understand that they
are still loved as well as important

Mending that Bond


Divorce

is not the underlying


cause of the students ability
to learn It is actually what
happens during and after
divorce that will affect them
at a greater capacity.

STRATEGIES

proactive!!!

OUR INQUIRY

IN OUR CLASSROOM
Even

though the students are


gathering their information on
their own, we need to make sure
that we are posing questions to
provoke students to think and
feel comfortable exploring the
direction they want to go.

FOR EXAMPLE

FOR EXAMPLE CONT.


In

our own personal opinion, we


had a very hard time with this
inquiry project.
This was because we found it
overwhelming could not figure
out our own sense of direction.
