An examination of urban and suburban school counselors’ familiarity with and usage of computer technology. Journal of Technology in Counseling, 4. Ethnic identity in early adolescence: Implications and recommendations for middle school counselors.

This book is written primarily for school counselors who are already working in schools, and what they can do to ensure that their schools are doing everything possible to end the achievement gap (the gap between high income and low income students in our country). The first chapter gives startling statistics that even made me (who knows a bit about the AG) shake my head and feel I needed to do something about it.

She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Counseling and Personnel Services at the University of Maryland, College Park. She has written numerous book chapters and refereed articles on issues pertaining to diversity in school counselor education.

This new resource for pre-service and in-service counsellors addresses the reasons why some students are more likely to encounter academic failure (racism, sexism, heterosexism, classism), and challenges readers to play an active role in bringing about the conditions for student success. She was named Maryland Counselor Educator of the Year in 2001 and was awarded the Alumni Excellence Award from UNCG’s Department of Counseling and Educational Development in 2002.

Well written and easy to read, this is one of the first texts that frames the school counseling role as a role of leadership and responsibility. Should be mandatory for any school counselor in training!
Rayli
This is an easy read with insightful information.

Everything went well with my purchase and delivery. I was very pleased. I needed this book right away for my internship class and it came within a few days of my order. This book is very well written and easy to read, unlike some of the other books I've had to read for my masters program. The author offers an in-depth perception of important and serious issues the children of the U.S. face on a daily basis and their disadvantage in the education system.
