Now You're in the Middle: A Handbook for the Student Council Advisor. New Directions for Student Councils, Number 17.
Keith, Kent M.
Student council advisors walk a tightrope, forced to balance student suspicions against administration and faculty disapproval. This book takes a hard look at the role of the advisor in the 70's. In making a strong case for the need to elevate the activities program to full curricular status, the author emphasizes the "learning by doing" aspect of student council and other non-classroom activities. He suggests how to assist without manipulating, how to let students fail occasionally, and how to understand the legal issues involved in dealing with student councils. (Author/PC)
