Reducing Dropouts through Achievement Motivation. End of Project Report, Title III, E.S.E.A.
Harlem Consolidated School District 122, Rockford, IL.
This is the final report of a three year program for preventing dropout attitudes from developing in the middle schools in grades 6,7, and 8. The project plans focused on three major goals: staff training for leading the project activities the development of materials for assisting teachers in the project activities, and the provision of teacher-led circle discussions for the students. Tabular sections on student and teacher data include objectives, together with the evaluation technique used to assess each objective and the results obtained. A subsequent section discusses the effects of the project on the clientele. Factors which facilitate the accomplishment of the objective are cited. Two major projects are said to have been met: staff training and the provision of circle discussion activities for all middle school students. Statistical data are seen to indicate significant gains and/or trends in the areas of personal inventory, self-perception, desirable self-traits, personal adjustment, and school related self-esteem. Classroom atmosphere is also said to have improved through this program. (Author/AM)
