Organizing a Middle School or Junior High School Student Council.
This workbook contains a series of learning packages which can be administered in a workshop setting or used individually. Dealing directly with key aspects of the student council, this book offers: (1) important learning experiences through problem solving; (2) leadership training for responsible citizenship, and (3) the opportunity to work cooperatively with others. Guidelines are recommended to make the material effective and easy to use. Directions for a general orientation session follow an agenda guideline. Three workshop sessions are then discussed, each dealing with an important aspect of student council organization: (1) the student council constitution, (2) project selection and evaluation. For each session, the author lists the directions and the text to be used. Transparencies of organizational structure and pre-session quizzes are also included. The workbook concludes with directions for closing the general workshop session, a workshop evaluation form and a bibliography. (Author/BW)
