Barrington, Kyle D.
Journal of Experiential Education, v18 n3 p138-44 Dec 1995
Three groups of secondary school teachers received different types of training with regard to teaching at-risk students. Teachers who learned techniques of experiential cooperative gaming for use with at-risk students demonstrated an increase in self-confidence in dealing with at-risk students, while teachers who received only information demonstrated decreased self-confidence.
