Free School Counseling Group Curriculum – Academic Success Groups

Free School Counseling Group Curriculum – Academic Success Groups

After several requests – I decided to post a curriculum I patched together to the blog. At the beginning of the school year, following ASCA 2015, I made a personal goal to run some groups this year. One of our major school wide goals was to decrease the D and F list (and thereby helping to improve the number of students meeting the CSU/UC A-G Requirements) so my group is designed to be a short term, academically focused intervention. I chose the time frame of four weeks because it fits within our progress report window. Using data from our D/F list for the first progress report – I just completed the first group last week, as of the date of this post.
