The transition of at-risk students to independent learners [electronic resource] /
The purpose of this action research study is to examine a classroom of at-risk students in transition from a traditional to a reform-based model of instruction. The teacher's role is gradually adjusted to encourage independent learning and the results are analyzed. The following research questions are addressed: 1) How can at-risk students best be assisted in the transition to a reform-based mathematics classroom? 2) How will the students' attitude, perception of their abilities, and performance change throughout the transition?
