The Guidance Counselor and the Instructional Arena.
This document discusses the role of the guidance counselor in helping with the academic achievement of students. One way to do this is to instruct teachers and principals in some of the basic tenets from educational psychology that can help students feel more positive about themselves. Being unable to meet high curricular standards often leads to lowered self esteem in students. These tenets assist students in performing better in school as well as meeting important objectives in feeling more positive about the self. Counselors can also instruct teachers in the use of Multiple Intelligences Theory. This theory allows teachers to use the strengths of students in developing curricula. Being familiar with various recommended models of teaching and learning activities enables counselors to help teachers with instructional problems in the classroom. Guidance counselors have an important role in school curriculum improvement. They can be actively involved in informing teachers and principals of the recommended trends in education. These trends assist students in achieving more optimally as well as meeting their personal needs. (ADT)
