SCHOOL COUNSELING LESSON PLANS
An integral part of every school counseling program is classroom guidance. Don’t reinvent the wheel every year! This bibliography is designed for elementary, middle and high school counselors to provide lesson plans on topics in the areas of academic development, career development and personal/social development.
“In the Mix” – Lesson plans and discussion guides that serve as companions to PBS series “In the Mix” – an award winning series for teens by teens. Lessons are designed for students in grades 7-12 and topics include: alcohol, college, dating, death, bereavement, depression, drug abuse, ethics, and media literacy. Episodes of the series air regularly on local PBS stations, can be purchased ($69.95 per copy) and/or can be taped and used for educational purposes up to one year from the time the episode is first taped. Many excellent lessons can be used without the series.
