Being Sisyphus: A Writing Pedagogy For At-Risk Students, Eric David Sullivan Jan 2004

Being Sisyphus: A Writing Pedagogy For At-Risk Students, Eric David Sullivan

Theses Digitization Project

This thesis discussess the limitations of the standards-based movement and suggests that some schools, especially those whose mission it is to work exclusively with at-risk students, need to be allowed to set local behavioral standards before any consideration can be given to setting and teaching academic standards. It mainly focuses on Phoenix High School, a community day school in the Corona-Norco Unified School District, and discusses how the standards based movement is not suited to meet the needs of its students.
