Counseling Considerations for Staff Working with Bilingual Students in the Secondary Schools. Bilingual Education Resource Series.
Adams, Gloria; And Others
This guide for counselors working with bilingual secondary school students outlines various student needs and discusses the counseling skills and techniques necessary to meet these needs. Strategies for helping students to discover themselves, to locate needed information, and to make decisions wisely are delineated. Activities are suggested, and worksheets are provided to help bilingual students develop skills and identify their own values from both cultures. Several programs and activities are described for helping limited or non-English-speaking students adjust to their new schools. Course selection, career planning, and job-seeking skills are designated as areas in which counselors should assist bilingual students. A list of classroom and social problems of limited English-speaking students is followed by a list of interventions that counselors and teachers may use to mitigate some problems. (NRB)
