More Is Better: Raising Expectations for Students At Risk.
Taylor, Rosemarye; Reeves, Jennifer
Middle School Journal, v24 n5 p13-18 May 1993
Describes an effective dropout prevention program at an Orlando, Florida, middle school. Staff identified 90 at-risk seventh graders, assigning 45 to 3 seventh-grade teaching teams and the remaining 45 to an experimental student team (the Dragons) promising to deliver a traditional curriculum in a nontraditional, nonremedial way. Shadow study of both programs declared the Dragon team an unqualified success. (MLH)
