Programs of Assistance for the At-Risk Student.
Gullatt, David E.; Lofton, Brenda D.
Teachers and administrators are becoming aware of a need for change in the approach to instruction for at-risk students. Traditional methods, while appropriate for many, are not meeting the needs of all students. In order for programs to be effective in dealing with at-risk students, these efforts must be comprehensive and meet individual student needs. One of the major responsibilities of the school is to see that every student is successful in learning. This paper examines several successful intervention programs described in the literature that target at-risk students. Fifteen recommendations follow that encourage: (1) a proactive approach to curriculum development; (2) increased school staff development; and (3) improved instructional leadership by the school principal.
