Land, Christy W.; Ziomek-Daigle, Jolie
Georgia School Counselors Association Journal, v20 n1 Nov 2013
First generation college students have more difficulty preparing for and succeeding in post-secondary institutions. Informed by the literature review and relevant research the school counselor presents a small group design for high school students in their junior year. This small group plan for first generation college students addresses issues of access, goal setting, career exploration, the college admissions process, and the financial aid application process. Systemic considerations are also discussed.
