Intervention Strategies To Improve the Self-Esteem of Low Achievers in High School Science Class.
In the practicum reported in this document, the self-esteem of low achievers in a high school science class was improved through the use of strategies such as personal self-referent verbal statements (PSRVS), group activities, incentive programs, motivation techniques such as computer assisted instruction (CAI) and parental involvement. A Self-Esteem Observation Checklist, designed for the practicum, was used to collect data from the target population regarding manifestations of low self-esteem. The intervention strategies were implemented on a regular basis every week for 12 weeks. Observations were made of any indication of changes in the students' self-esteem during and after implementation, using the Self-Esteem Observation Checklist. Included are a description of the community and work place, problem description, causative analysis, literature review, goals and expectations, outline, explanation of methodology, discussion and evaluation of possible solutions, results, and recommendations. A copy of the Self-Esteem Observation Checklist is appended. (Author/KR)
