A Guide to Student Council Projects. New Directions for Student Councils, Number 14.
National Association of Secondary School Principals, Reston, VA.
Over the years, it has been painfully apparent that student interest and participation has dropped off dramatically in those student councils which have dragged their feet, contenting themselves with sock hops and candy sales. At a time when many new groups are appearing on the scene, espousing a variety of causes, student councils must work harder than ever to maintain their position of leadership by broadening their outlooks, redirecting their activities, and involving students--all students--in new areas of thought and activity. This booklet is an attempt to help student councils reassess existing programs, many of which have returned substantial dividends, and to find new directions for their activities programs. Many, of course, have already developed exciting new programs; for them, this booklet will simply reaffirm their belief in the need for constant self-evaluation and self-improvement. For others, however, it is hoped that the book may spark new ideas for involvement in such areas as curriculum development, pollution control, and community service. (Author/PC)
