Vela, Jesus, Jr.
A suggested management system for secondary migrant counselors is the second part of a guide to help migrant counselors meet the special needs of migrant students. It includes a list of counselors' competencies and suggested calendars of academic, vocational, and social activities. Competencies include organizing pre-registration and registration activities, setting up orientation programs, communicating effectively, coordinating and evaluating testing, implementing counseling sessions, screening scholarship applicants, writing recommendation letters, providing financial aid information, collecting data for student records, and serving as a resource person. A second part gives a yearly academic calendar and explanations of major activities, e.g., registration, parent counseling, and testing. The third section lists counselors' duties in the vocational domain and gives a calendar of vocational activities (including needs assessment, career centers, visitation, National Vocational Week) and explanations of calendar items. The fourth part provides a calendar and explanations of counselors' social responsibilities (staff development, conflict management, coping skills, and others). The final section contains brief concluding remarks. Appendices provide guidelines for parent-teacher conferences, group counseling meetings, ice-breaker activities, and communicating with parents; explain why schools' task is to kiss frogs; discuss self-concept building for students and teachers; and give student forms.
