Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter discusses guidance for pupils in their whole person development on individual as well as class bases, and describes the guidance roles and functions of class teachers in Hong Kong. On the individual level, it holds that the personal attributes and attitudes of the class teacher facilitate the development of a personal teacher-pupil relationship which will help the pupils enhance their self-esteem and serve as a basis for initial counselling. On the class level, the class teacher facilitates the collective growth and development of the whole class by establishing a positive class culture, showing care for maladjusted pupils, and planning and carrying out year-long whole person development programmes.
