In Japan, about 98% junior-high school students go to high school. Our graduate students go to A high school and support students who have problems concerning their school and private life, interpersonal relationship, and themselves. Experience and learning to support the students is very valuable for the students who want to be a highly professional teacher.
The purpose of this study was to clarify the step and process of growth of the students' supporting and helping skills. The participants was 10 graduate students who performed supporting at A high school. After 10 months, they were asked about their support experience. From the categorical analysis, 5 steps hypothesis was made; 1)Starting (confusion and anxious), 2)Learning 1 (trial and error), 3)Learning 2(modering), 4)Understanding the students (acceptance and empathy), 5) Considering and selecting the supporting skills for the students' complaints and conditions. To confirm the validity, longitudinal study must be made.
