Charting a Course: Promise and Prospects for Alternative Schools.
Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Problems, v3 n4 p8-11 Win 1995
Discusses two key components in successful schools which should be applied to alternative schools for at-risk youth: keeping students from failing, and giving students warm, interpersonal support. Some successful strategies include individual curricula and evaluation, evaluation based on progress rather than normative grades, joint projects that develop social skills, and discipline that avoids the appearance of punishment.
