Two texts that can enlighten both your students and you!

I am finishing up reading through So, You Are Going to College?! 2nd Edition by San Bolkan, PhD, professor of communication at CSU Long Beach, which is a very power-packed, but short book that will give any upper class high school student head start when getting ready to head off to college. The content is high-quality and written in a very entertaining way to capture even teenage readers’ minds. At just under 130 pages, the book takes readers through six chapters covering myths about college, how to be an adult in college, the basics of communication in college, how to listen in class, studying, and finally helping to understand the end goal of the college experience. I am adding this book to my “loaner” library to give out to students.

Second is Counseling Toward Solutions: A Practical Solution-Focused Program, more of a textbook but regardless is a gold-mine of information to bring into your program. It is much thicker and not as interesting as So, You Are Going to College?! 2nd Edition, but I believe in solution focused counseling techniques and hope that others can start seeing the value behind it (check out positive psychologytoo!).

*Note:* While neither of these books deals with technology, I hope to also provide some insightful resources that I come across and find valuable. I promise not to waste your time with meaningless posts.
