Derrickson, Denise A.
Teaching and Change, v2 n4 p352-68 Sum 1995
After teachers examined ninth-grade potential dropouts' perceptions of school success, an interdisciplinary team involved the students in mediation, identified their needs, helped develop goals, and worked to enhance achievement. Students' perceptions and attitudes significantly affected their success. Within months, students had academically and behaviorally exceeded everyone's expectations. (SM)
