Changing Attitudes Through Behavior Modification.
Whipple, W. Scott
This article describes the philosophy and methods used by the staff at the Granite Alternative School in changing student attitudes through behavior modification. The students involved all have a failure syndrome or low self-image, and are dropouts from traditional high schools. Among the techniques used are: (1) reinforcing good behavior (praise and approval); (2) caring for the student; (3) modeling by teachers serving as good examples; (4) token reinforcement (special grading system, letters of praise); and (5) creating a climate where success is attainable by all students.
