Elementary School Counselors and Teachers: Collaborators for Higher Student Achievement
Sink, Christopher A.
Elementary School Journal, v108 n5 p445-458 May 2008
In this article I contend that elementary school teachers need to work more closely with school counselors to enhance student learning and academic performance and to narrow the achievement gap among student groups. Research showing the influence that counselors can exert on the educational process is summarized. Using the American School Counselor Association's organization framework for structuring counseling and guidance programs, I also illustrate where the educative roles of teachers and school counselors overlap and give examples of how they can form more effective educational partnerships. Finally, I provide school-based examples of this team approach. (Contains 1 figure and 1 table.)
