The Training of Teachers as Advisors.
In Florida, State Department of Education emphasis on "Teachers as Advisor Programs" across the state has created a demand for the training sequence described in this paper. Current reasons for promoting the program are listed and a brief training course description is provided. The skills involved are intended to be sequential. The course is divided into three parts: (1) learning/teaching styles; (2) communication/problem solving; and (3) intervention model/demonstration. The course schedule and instructional sequence explicate each of the three parts of the course. At the end of the course, teachers work with actual students who have academic problems. The teachers then discuss their successes and their failures with each other in an environment that does not threaten their professional competence. The course is designed to enable teachers to develop the skills necessary to work one-on-one with students in their schools. Appendixes include a program objectives list, an instructional sequence diagram, a sample instructor lesson guide, and a course schedule. (4 references) (SI)
