Effects of Systematic Reinforcement Procedures on the Performance of Underachieving High School Pupils.
Harris, Jasper W.
The research of this study is directed toward finding ways to change behaviors that interfere with education for disadvantaged children. Accordingly, some pilot research was done in a disadvantaged senior high school in Kansas City, Kansas, in 1969. During the subsequent two-year investigation, the researchers were able to develop an experimental academic reinforcement program in an English class. The implications of the research are held significant in guiding future research efforts. Perhaps the most important implication is that the primary problem of poverty area students may not be one of motivation, but rather one related to teaching procedures. (Author/JW)
