Selective Versus Targeted Groups
The COREMatters Project is available to be presented in two different formats, depending on the needs of your students and your school. In a "Selective Group" all of the students in a particular grade would be participants. On the other hand, in a "Targeted Group" participants would be those students who have repeatedly exhibited certain behaviors.
Rules that govern acceptable student
conduct may change outward
behavior, however will that
change be permanent?
Or will their character and
core values remain untouched
It has been the experience of the COREMatters team specialists that a targeted and/or selective approach will create a universal benefit. This is in direct contrast to most universal approaches that only produce sporadic effects. The benefit of instruction directed to a specific group is that the problem behavior is targeted causing universal benefit.
