Modifying Self-Concept for At Risk Readers.
Coley, Joan Develin; Hoffman, Dianne
A program was designed to deal explicitly with "learned helplessness" and poor self-concept of six middle school students who were receiving special help in a reading resource room. The students completed an assignment and then reflected in a journal in narrative form on how well they felt they had completed the assignment. Students also completed a self-rating on what kind of thinker each student judged himself or herself to be that week. All students' self-ratings improved with time and a positive dialogue with the teacher was maintained throughout the year. (RS)
