This book offers counselors an action-based curriculum that will meet the needs of the 21 st century high school student, help to foster their growth and ambition, and engage them as constructivists in learning what they need to succeed beyond high school. It takes a comprehensive, developmental approach, focusing on 9 th -12 th grade students, rather than solely on those in 11 th and 12 th grade. Specific topics discussed include successful transition to 9 th grade; using technology in the college and career advising process; assisting and advising students in college research and application; and helping seniors make successful transitions to college. Also included is information on running a college guidance office and working with parents. The described curriculum is geared to all school counselors and students, but there is also a special focus on those students in urban public schools to enable them to have the same enriched experiences in their college and career advising program as that at private and suburban schools.
