Of Love and Magic: The Junior High/Middle School Student Council Adviser.
In his review of the role of the student coucil adviser in junior high schools, Reum first looks at the characteristics of sixth through ninth grade students and student leaders and then at those of a student council adviser who should like junior high school students and relate well with students and faculty. Reum points out a potential role conflict for the adviser who serves both as a student council member and as a part of the school administration. The author provides helpful suggestions for conducting meetings, organizing committees, handling finances, planning activities, managing public relations and publicity, and evaluating projects. Especially useful for a student council adviser, lists of typical committee structures and activities from September to June offer many ideas. (Author/LAA)
