Journal of Education, v192 n2-3 p89-99 2011-2012
An overview of the Student Success Skills program is offered, including descriptions of the curricular structure, extant research support related to SSS effectiveness for academic achievement and improved school behaviors, and a theory of change for student development. Recent research has demonstrated the value of the SSS program as it connects to student academic achievement and related learning outcomes. To demonstrate how these findings can be generalized as a theory of change in myriad educational circumstances, specific SSS curricular skills and strategies are explicated, including cognitive, attitudinal, self-regulatory, behavioral, and social.
