A Goal-Setting Model for Young Adolescent At-Risk Students.
Martino, Louis R.
Middle School Journal, v24 n5 p19-22 May 1993
Many young adolescent students are frustrated, reluctant learners that seem resigned to helplessness and other self-defeating behaviors. Telling students to try harder is not particularly effective. This article offers a goal-setting strategy to help youngsters become failure-avoiding, instead of failure-accepting, students. Teachers help students develop short-term, realistic goals to boost self-confidence. (10 references) (MLH)
