Pro: You Can Bring Hope to Failing Students. What's behind Self-Esteem Programs: Truth or Trickery?
Reasoner, Robert W.
School Administrator, v49 n4 p23-24,26,30 Apr 1992
Programs limited to making students "feel good" often fail to strengthen the internal source of self-esteem related to integrity, responsibility, and achievement. Schools using the Building Self-Esteem program discovered significant positive changes among both students and teachers. Students exhibited more cooperative behavior and greater academic motivation, and teachers felt more secure, cohesive, and competent. (MLH)
