Mireles, S. Raymond
Self-Programmed Counseling, the instructor's guidance, and Self-Programmed Control (SPC), the student's response, was initially developed by Title III Project USTED (United Students and Teachers for Educational Development) for Mexican American college students on academic probation to use on a non-credit, special group counseling basis. As part of a regular college credit class, the offering was expanded and made available to all students with equally effective results. The approach, defined at the beginning of each of several series of exercises, is included in this manual as an integral part of a motivational study skills development course. The publication is presented as a systematic, historically supported method of assisting in the development of positive thinking associated with study skills development leading to educational success of the Mexican American student. It is designed to provide a structured framework which permits creativity and further provides a corrective mechanism made possible by the sharing of results with students, instructors, and the program. This student's guide (written in English and Spanish) contains chapters discussing personal and scholastic development, barrio needs, and SPC control exercises. Four chapters contain exercises series, and the last chapter contains class checklists, survey forms, and a student questionnaire. (AH)
