Multi-Unit High School. Learning Community Staff Manual.
Paul, Marjorie; And Others
This document consists of two manuals prepared for staff members and guidance counselors in the Learning Community (LC) program, as practiced in New Jersey's North Hunterdon Regional High School District. The staff members are described as teachers performing in multiple roles. Teachers help establish LCs around educational interests and are responsible for planning, scheduling, and, in some cases, budgeting their LCs. Teachers act as accessible advisors to students, are encouraged to maintain telephone contact with parents, and coordinate LC activities with the ongoing multi-elective program of the school. This manual also contains comments on record-keeping and learning options, as well as appendices illustrating useful forms. The manual for guidance counselors suggests useful inservice programs to create and maintain counselor knowledge of the program. Counselors in turn orient students, parents, and the community to the program and inform teachers of the counselors' services. The counselor's role is expanded to contact with all levels of the school operation, while some of the counselor's functions requiring less professional training are turned over to teacher-advisors. The need for openness, flexibility, continued learning, and consciousness of the individual counselor's place within the educational complex as a whole is stressed. (Author/PGD)
