Schellenberg, Rita; Grothaus, Timothy
Professional School Counseling, v12 n6 p440-449 Aug 2009
In this article, "standards blending"--the integration of core academic and school counseling standards--is demonstrated as a culturally responsive strategy to assist in closing the achievement gap for a group of third-grade African American males. The small-group intervention described resulted in knowledge gains in both the school counseling and academic curriculum content areas. All participants also reported experiencing increased self-esteem. (Contains 2 tables.)
