One of the most effective ways to reach a majority of students is through classroom guidance lessons. The lessons and bonus activities offered in More Classroom Guidance From A-Z are easy-to-present and help students with academic, career, and social development. Classroom guidance lessons provide students with support, present relevant information, and teach essential life-skills. And along with providing support, the counselor receives the benefit of building relationships with students.
This book, packed with extras, is designed to help make your counseling job easier. The 45-60 minute-long lessons are interactive, motivating, and effective, and each lesson includes downloadable digital content for the reproducible student handouts, printable mini posters, and bonus review activities, quizzes or games.
The lessons follow the ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors for Student Success Model, which are listed at the beginning of each lesson. Have fun presenting these creative lessons written by one of our most popular authors, Becky Kirby, and have fun with your students!
