Levels of Involvement: The Power of Choice in a Middle School Level System
Havill, Laura K.
Reclaiming Children and Youth: The Journal of Strength-based Interventions, v13 n3 p155 Fall 2004
This article outlines the development of a level system for a self-contained middle school program serving students with emotional and behavioral disorders. This level system is a real alternative to traditional control and coercion models. The Turning Point Middle School's level system incorporates aspects of the Circle of Courage, Choice Theory, and current brain research to provide a model that affords students the opportunity to choose a personal level of involvement in their program.
