Preparing Instructor-Counselors for Underachieving College Students.
Cleveland State Univ., OH. Coll. of Education.
The Instructor-Counselor Program is designed to prepare teachers for special service in lower division college programs, especially in student development programs concentrating on basic skills. It emphasizes academic counseling, tutoring, and special approaches to instruction, especially for the underachieving-disadvantaged student. Both full- and part-time programs are offered. The full-time program consists of 50 quarter hours of graduate work culminating in the Master of Education degree. Participants take specially designed seminars and laboratory experiences in higher education, counseling, and instructional strategies, along with graduate course work in their subject matter areas and a two-quarter internship. The part-time program consists of a minimum of 19 quarter hours of graduate credit. Participants, recruited largely from staffs of area community colleges, use these graduate hours to develop added skills to work with high-risk students. Participants in both programs work in mini-counseling laboratories, which involve them in tutoring and counseling with five high-risk students who are in student development programs at one of four cooperating community colleges. Plans have been made and data is being collected for evaluation of the program. (RT)
