Four Principles for Reforming Middle Schools.
Hawkins, Mary Louise; Graham, M. Dolores
Childhood Education, v73 n5 p278-81 1997
Discusses four principles that can help middle school environments overcome common behavior problems and become places where young adolescents develop responsibility for their learning: (1) foster natural human development; (2) respond to individual needs; (3) avoid artificially imposed classroom order and promote self organization; and (4) value human judgment and intuition rather than insisting solely on data and facts.
