Netolicky and Harrison look at the factors that contribute to the students' feelings of alienation in the classroom. Combining their research with knowledge about cultural influences on indigenous students, they present a program for at-risk students. This paper presents the study carried out on Aboriginal students and analyzes the program developed by the authors.

From the Paper:

"Netolicky and Harrison's work involves the basic principles of refining curriculum to cultural backgrounds; teaching negotiation strategies regarding curriculum to students; responding positively when students request changes in curriculum; intervening sooner rather than later when students become disengaged or apathetic to the curriculum; and making use of support educational services as needed. Most of those changes are at least as much cultural as they are related to academics."
