Managing Anger of At-Risk Students Using a Comprehensive Support Model
Obiakor, Festus E.
Multicultural Learning and Teaching, v1 n2 p3-12 Aug 2006
Many at-risk students face myriad problems that are pervasive, multifaceted, and socio-historical. These problems sometimes lead them to anger, frustration, hate, hostility, and rage. In the educational system, these problems frequently lead to stigmatization as well as misidentification, mislabeling, misplacement, and misinstruction. Ironically, too often, the students are blamed by the same system that fails to design innovative programs to respond to their behavioral and learning styles. In this article, I describe how to manage anger and optimize the educational potential of at-risk students using the Comprehensive Support Model (CSM).
