Counseling and Interviewing Adult Students.
National Association for Public Continuing and Adult Education, Washington, DC.
This booklet discusses counseling for adults in the adult school--either by guidance officials or the teacher. The typical counselor interviews students, functions at group meetings, does cooperative placement work, trains other staff, keeps records, and gives tests. When the teacher acts as counselor, he must relate teaching goals to guidance objectives. The effective counselor makes advance preparation, listens carefully, asks one question at a time, is sensitive to helpful clues in the pattern of questions and answers, understands nonverbal communications, and is friendly and interested. (A checklist for teachers of adults and a checklist for students are included.) (PT)
