ESL Teaching in Collaboration with College Counseling.
Brilliant, Judith
Many factors that affect second language learning (e.g., cognitive, emotional, and cultural) can be addressed with counseling intervention. The Department of Student Development at Kingsborough Community College, New York, includes counselors who specialize in different student populations. Students are placed in a block program in which they share an English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) teacher, speech teacher, counselor, and content area teacher. Counselors teach courses that address such issues as college procedures, acculturation, study skills, test taking skills, stress reduction, and career choice. Each ESL class is attached to one specific ESL counselor. Counselors are available for individual referrals and teacher consultations. Individual counseling sessions help students develop awareness of their own emotional responses and learning styles. Students who must remain in ESL classes for longer than usual are provided with special, more intensive services. Tutoring is available from rigorously trained and supervised tutors. Counselor-led English conversation groups allow students to speak English while expressing their feelings, fears, and frustrations. (SM)
