A Program to Enhance Self-Concept of Junior High Students.
McMillan, James H.
This research analyzes the results of a program to enhance the self concepts of junior high students. Subjects were 80 students identified as having low self concepts. They participated in an eight-week program to develop skills in personal and social awareness. Pretest posttest scores on the Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory indicated that students who participated in the program showed a significantly greater gain in self concept than students not in the program. The results are encouraging for educators who wish to plan specific activities to develop more positive self concepts of junior high students. (Author)
