School counseling that makes a difference—for all students!

As an elementary school counselor, you’re implementing a comprehensive program to promote academic and social-emotional development for all students. You’re planting seeds of college and career readiness, which means creating core curriculum classroom lessons, delivering engaging content to students and parents, managing classroom behaviors, providing assessments, and sharing the results. 
 
The good news is that you don’t have to do it alone. In this guide, three experienced school counselors take you step by step through the creation and implementation of high-quality Tier 1 systems of universal supports. With a focus on proactive and prevention education through core curriculum classroom lessons and schoolwide activities, this practical text includes:

  • The school counselor’s role in Multi-tiered, Multi-Domain System of Supports 
  • Examples to help with design, implementation, and evaluation
  • Guidance for selecting curriculum and developing lesson and action plans
  • Alignment with ASCA National Model and ASCA Mindsets and Behaviors 
  • Vignettes from practicing elementary school counselors
  • Recommendations for including families in prevention activities
  • Management tools, reproducible templates, and reflective activities and processing questions

You teach the academic, college and career, and social-emotional competencies students need to be successful learners. With this book’s expert guidance, you’re prepared to help them get there.

“This book accomplishes what so many school counseling graduates are often left to learn ‘on the job’: translation of theory and ideas into meaningful, evidence-based practice within a multi-tiered system of supports.”
—Paul C. Harris, Assistant Professor, Counselor Education
University of Virginia

"This is the book all elementary school counselors have been waiting for! Not only can it deepen our skills as educators and collaborators, it also provides a sounding board for effective school counseling practices that are standards-based, measurable, and focused on closing the achievement gap.” 
—Kirsten Perry, ASCA 2018 School Counselor of the Year

“This book accomplishes what so many school counseling graduates are often left to learn 'on the job:' translation of theory and ideas into meaningful, evidence-based practice within a multi-tiered system of supports, and especially at the elementary level. It’s a must read for every school counselor educator and 21st century school counselor.”

Paul C. Harris, PhD, Assistant Professor, Counselor Education

“The suggestions in this book on how to increase student engagement align very well with the AVID methods of engagement we support through our counselor and elementary school professional learning, and as such provide great guidance to the reader.”  -Dr. Sandy Husk, CEO, AVID – Advancement Via Individual Determination

"The strengths of this book include the ability of the authors to show, instead of just tell, the reader important concepts and activities. Readers are provided with practical steps to creating foundational core curriculum to remove barriers to success for all students. Practicing school counselors and school counselors in-training will benefit from the step-by-step guide to building lesson plans, the multiple strategies to increase student engagement, and the clear blueprint for effective classroom management. The informal and easy-to-read writing style makes this an accessible text for students at the graduate level as well as existing school counselors. Finally, school counseling, as a profession, can improve in our ability to evaluate the impact of our work and share-out results of our interventions. Hatching Results for Elementary School Counseling provides users with a system for sharing out important results related to student growth and development."

"Elementary school counselors can feel isolated and alone without a team. We are often pulled in multiple directions while trying to make an impact on our students and our school communities. Trish, Danielle and Lisa have provided us with that team by sharing their stories, expertise, and practical suggestions in this book.  Never feel alone again with this resource on your shelf! It is great for veteran AND rookie school counselors." 

Mindy Willard, 2013 American School Counselor of the Year, former President of Arizona School Counselor Association

“This is a fantastic resource! It’s perfect not only for new school counselors but also for veterans.”
