Gerler, Edwin R., Jr.; And Others
This eighth chapter in "Elementary School Counseling in a Changing World" presents four journal articles concerned with the "back to the basics" movement and with programs to help elementary school counselors promote academic achievement among students. "The Effects of Classroom Guidance on Children's Success in School" by Edwin Gerler, Jr. and Ronald Anderson describes a large-scale, experimental study of classroom guidance in North Carolina. "Working with Young Procrastinators: Elementary School Students Who Do Not Complete School Assignments" by Linda Morse discusses changing the attitudes and work habits of elementary school students who procrastinate. "Multimodal Counseling: Motivating Children to Attend School Through Friendship Groups" by Donald Keat, Kathy Metzgar, Deborah Raykovitz, and James McDonald illustrates how to approach the humanistic goal of improved personal relationships by multimodal means. "Elementary School Counseling Research and the Classroom Learning Environment" by Edwin Gerler, Jr. reviews the research published in "Elementary School Guidance and Counseling" from 1974 to 1984, exploring research evidence of elementary school counselors' effectiveness in helping children to improve classroom behavior, explore feelings, improve socially, and enhance sensory awareness and mental imagery. The chapter concludes with a set of issues for elementary school counselors to consider about learning in a changing world. (NB)
