Alaska State Dept. of Education, Juneau. Div. of Educational Program Support.
School counseling programs touch all students, parents, and prospective employers. This guide describes a counseling model that can be used for grades K-12 in a variety of Alaskan school settings. It was developed by counselors who work in both itinerant and single school settings in rural and urban communities. The program is intended as a map to help school districts strengthen existing counseling programs. It describes ways to use resources and offers tips on documenting accountability. Staff development activities are presented to help counselors, administrators, and other staff members to work with students. The curriculum itself addresses three major areas: (1) acquiring and applying knowledge of self and others, such as communicating effectively, behaving responsibly, and developing group skills; (2) developing competencies in career and life planning, including problem solving, setting goals, and exploring career options; and (3) achieving educational success. The curriculum sequence is presented both by goal and by grade level. Numerous forms for time and task analysis; sample schedules and master calendars; guidelines for needs assessment; scope and sequence and curriculum; and program evaluation are also provided. A sample advisory board agenda and a sample materials inventory are included. (RJM)
