TEACHER-ADVISORS: Where There's a Skill There's A Way.
Tamminen, Armas; And Others
This report discusses a program to present the Teacher Advisement Training Model. This model for training teacher-advisors is based on the assumption that tentative commitment to making school a more rewarding experience for all is the first step in starting an effective program. The approach is to help teachers learn specific skills and methods which have a high success probability, thereby resulting in positive reinforcement. The proposed teacher-advisor training program involves 40 to 50 hours of instruction. The skill learning involved in the program is broken down into three components: (1) relationship building, (2) assertion, and (3) group facilitation. The authors believe that additional benefits from such a program are: (1) transfer of the learning to the classroom, (2) closer relationships and cooperation among staff members in helping students and (3) student imitation of the teacher's positive ways of relating to each other.
