Take advantage of informal encounters to encourage, motivate, and connect with students!
When school counselors venture outside the classroom or office into less formal settings, they can increase the number and effectiveness of encounters with students. Helping in the Hallways, Second Edition allows counselors to use these brief, less-structured interactions to create learning opportunities, improve student performance, and foster a positive school culture.
This revised edition references the ASCA National Model and addresses legislation such as NCLB. Expanded sections provide:
- Specific strategies for effective encounters
- Experiences and perspectives from teachers, students, and administrators
- Additional self-assessment activities and practice scenarios
- Tables and sidebars highlighting key points
Use these strategies to promote a safe, comfortable environment for learning that helps students succeed in all phases of school life.
