Bring Your Full Range of Counseling Know-How Into the Classroom


Counselor in the Classroom Activities and Strategies for an Effective Classroom Guidance Program

Pat Schwallie-Giddis, David Cowan & Dianne Schilling

As a counselor, you hold the keys to some of the most vital, sought‑after, "basic" skills that people ever develop. In a lifetime, many individuals never acquire these skills, yet you have the power to teach them to children! Not just to those children who are referred to you because of problems, but to all children.

This collection of learning activities is designed to highlight skills you already possess within the context of an instructional guidance curriculum. Each activity is a 30‑ to 50‑minute lesson. Many include follow‑up suggestions for the teacher and reproducible activity sheets for students.
