School Counselor Resource Manual and Evaluative Criteria. Revised 1995.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
School counselors are expected to enhance the school environment so that students can reach their full potential. Some of the tools that counselors need to implement a comprehensive school counseling program are detailed in this resource manual. It offers specific ideas on how to start programs and it includes sample instruments for gathering data to evaluate the school counseling program. Section 1 of the manual is divided into six separate areas to reflect the six functions (program planning, counseling, consulting, coordinating, student appraisal, and professional practices) of school counselors, functions which are found on the Performance Appraisal Instrument for school counselors. Under each function are suggestions for developing programs and activities, and a list of appraisal instruments to help in the evaluation and execution of those functions. Section 2 of the guide focuses on goals for the guidance curriculum, and it offers sample activities for teachers and counselors to use in helping students achieve their objectives. The last section includes updated lists of age-appropriate resource materials, such as videos, books, games, curriculum planning materials, and more. It is emphasized that school counselors, teachers, and administrators should work together to ensure that students reach their potential. (RJM)
