ACTION FOR BOSTON COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT, INC. AND EXPERIMENTAL GUIDANCE ADVISER PROGRAM IN THE BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS. PROGRAM AND RESEARCH DESIGN, JANUARY, 1965.
SLAVET, JOSEPH S.; AND OTHERS
GUIDANCE PERSONNEL HAVE A GREAT RESPONSIBILITY FOR HELPING STUDENTS IN CULTURALLY DEPRIVED AREAS WHO LAG BEHIND IN SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT. THE PATTERN OF ACADEMIC FAILURE, OFTEN RESULTING IN DROPOUT, UNEMPLOYMENT, AND IN SOME CASES JUVENILE DELINQUENCY SHOULD BE CHANGED. THIS EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM IS BASED ON A LONG HISTORY OF GUIDANCE IN BOSTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS, AND IN PARTICULAR A PROGRAM FOR SEVENTH, EIGHTH, AND NINTH GRADES TO OFFSET SCHOOL DROPOUT AND FAILURE. THE MAJOR EMPHASIS DURING THE FIRST TWO MONTHS WILL BE UPON INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING FOR ACADEMICALLY FAILING PUPILS. THE COUNSELING IS STRUCTURED TO IDENTIFY AND ANALYZE THE PUPIL'S PROBLEMS, PRESCRIBE AND HELP IMPLEMENT TREATMENT. IT WILL CONSIST OF A MINIMUM NUMBER OF INTERVIEWS FOR ALL STUDENTS. PROCEDURES FOR FAILURES AND UNDERACHIEVERS INCLUDE DAILY PROGRESS REPORTS, FURTHER TESTING AND CONTACT WITH PARENTS. ALTHOUGH FAILURES ARE GIVEN HIGHEST PRIORITY, ALL STUDENTS ARE ADVISED ON COURSE SELECTION AND GIVEN VOCATIONAL ORIENTATION. THE SECOND COMPONENT OF THE PROGRAM IS SMALL GROUP COUNSELING ON TOPICS WHICH ARE SUGGESTED. THE SUPPORTIVE CLASSROOM PROGRAM IS THE THIRD PART OF THE PROJECT, THE ROLE OF THE GUIDANCE ADVISER IS TO ADVISE TEACHERS OF PUPILS' LEARNING PROBLEMS AND TO HELP IN THE SELECTION OF MATERIALS AND METHODS. ALL PHASES ARE DESCRIBED AND PROCEDURES AND MATERIALS ARE OUTLINED. THE SPECIFIC RESPONSIBILITIES ARE GIVEN FOR THE TEACHER, THE PRINCIPAL, AND THE ADVISER HIMSELF TO THE EXPERIMENTAL GUIDANCE PROGRAM.
