Great Websites for School Counselors: Three of School Counselor Blog's Favorites

I have shared these links in the sidebar on my blog, but I wanted to give readers more information about why these sites are so great!

The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) is the national organization for school counselors. The site provides resources to members, articles, and information about the ASCA National Model. ASCA also has a blog, podcasts, and a social networking site called ASCA Scene. If you need more information the roles of a school counselor are, ASCA is the site for you! A lot of the features on this site are for members only. I highly recommend becoming a member of ASCA. To find out more about the benefits of joining the American School Counseling Association, click here.

Are you an elementary school counselor? Do you have questions about school counseling? Do you need ideas for a lesson or topic? Would you really appreciate some advice on a situation? If you answered yes to any of those questions, The Elementary School Counselors Yahoo Group ListServ is for you! The Elementary School Counselors Yahoo Group ListServ allows members to ask questions and get answers fast. I frequently use the  The Elementary School Counselors Yahoo Group ListServ to get ideas for lessons or find out about new resources. To join, follow the The Elementary School Counselors Yahoo Group ListServ link and click join this group. You will need a Yahoo Account to access The Elementary School Counselors Yahoo Group ListServ

Teaching Tolerance is a great website to get ideas, lesson plans, and resources. Educators can sign up for a free magazine and free classroom kits via mail.  You can also sign up for  free e-news from Teaching Tolerance. One of my favorite features of the Teaching Tolerance website is the searchable database of classroom activities. You can search by grade level or topic. Teaching Tolerance has received national attention for their Mix It Up program. Mix It Up encourages students to "mix it up" at lunch and sit with people the would not normally sit with. Mix It Up helps schools create a culture of tolerance and acceptance.  You can download free kits with lessons to use for Mix It Up Day.
