School Counselor Action Research: A Case Example
Luck, Leslie; Webb, Linda
Professional School Counseling, v12 n6 p408-412 Aug 2009
Achievement outcomes for students participating in a school counselor-led Student Success Skills intervention were investigated. Students in Grades 4 and 5 in a single school participated in the action research. Achievement outcomes were measured using the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. Students who participated in the intervention showed greater mean improvement in reading and math scores than students at the district or state levels. The authors describe how sharing improved student outcomes led to a decrease in duties assigned to the school counselor unrelated to facilitating the school counseling program and a greater appreciation and respect for contributions of the school counselor. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
