The Relationship of College Reading Programs to Educational Counseling.
Kirk, Barbara A.
The way a student studies is a projection of his total personality. Through the content of his approach to studying, some basic personal traits may be dealt with and altered. The relationship between the reading and study skills specialist and the educational counselor is a cooperative one with the reading specialist providing knowledge, information, and techniques while the counselor works with the attitudinal, personal, and emotional material. A potential danger exists when the counselor defaults his responsibility and propels his student into the reading and study skills program, or when the reading specialist goes outside his professional boundaries and assumes the role of a counselor. The necessity of a carefully thought through, planned, tried, and evaluated relationship between the counselor and the reading specialist is emphasized. (RT)
