Help Through Organizing: A New Resource Within Secondary Schools.
Francisco, Richard P.
Overburdened by numerous non-teaching problems and pressures that occupy their daily lives, some secondary school teachers find very little time to address their primary task: that of teaching. As a result, many teachers are frustrated and dissatisfied with their job, and that means that their teaching suffers. Support for classroom teachers is needed to revitalize the troubled secondary school. A moderate restructuring of the secondary school or organization--a restructuring that includes a new stance for counselors and school psychologists--can become a source of providing direct support for teachers. Discussion focuses on: (1) three motivational needs of teachers; (2) counselors and school psychologists as systematic change agents; (3) four subsystems for school-wide problem solving; and (4) a consultative model for problem diagnosis.
