Guidance in the Middle School: Everyone's Responsibility.
Cole, Claire C.
This monograph describes the role of the middle school counselor and middle school teacher in developing an educational program that meets the developmental and individual needs of students. The author identifies the broad-based and multi-dimensional perspectives of such a program and suggests that teachers and other school personnel should share guidance responsibilities. The needs of the emerging adolescent are described in terms of six developmental tasks, illustrated by student dialogues. The role of the counselor in consulting and coordinating as well as counseling is described. A sample of available resources are listed in an annotated bibliography. A role statement for counselors developed by the Virginia School Counselor Association and the Virginia Association for Counselor Education is appended. (JAC)
