{giveaway} *Winner Announced* "Middle School Confidential" Series and iPad App: School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest Day 10 Grand Finale!

Be Confident in Who You Are (Middle School Confidential Series) (Bk. 1)I am so excited to host the School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest, which is 10 days of daily giveaways starting September 1st and ends on September 10th!

Today is day 10, the last day of the School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest.

Real Friends vs. the Other Kind (Middle School Confidential)Today's giveaway for the School Counselor Blog Back to School Contest is the Middle School Confidential Series (Be Confident in Who You Are (Bk. 1)Real Friends vs. the Other Kind (Bk. 2), and What's Up with My Family? (Bk. 3)and The Middle School Confidential iPad App: Be Confident in Who You Are by Annie Fox from Free Spirit Publishing.

The Middle School Confidential Series are about tough topics middle school students face.  There are three books in the series, Be Confident in Who You Are (Middle School Confidential Series) (Bk. 1)Real Friends vs. the Other Kind (Bk. 2), and What's Up with My Family? (Bk. 3). The Middle School Confidential Series are filled with quotes from real students, tips, quizes, and resources. The Middle School Confidential Series are styled like a graphic novel which makes them fun and engaging.

What's Up with My Family? (Middle School Confidential)
Students absolutely love the Middle School Confidential Series I have used the The Middle School Confidential Series with students in 5-8 grade in individual counseling and group counseling.  I could see the potential for using the books for classroom lessons.

The Middle School Confidential iPad App: Be Confident in Who You Are is very cool. On the The Middle School Confidential: Be Confident in Who You Are iPad app page you can view screen shots of the app and a demo. The app can be viewed landscape or portrait, can be viewed zoomed in or full page, and has great sounds and effects. I haven't used the app with students yet, but it would be really cool to get a VGA adapter for the iPad and project it during a classroom lesson.

The Free Spirit website has tons of free downloads related to the Middle School Confidential series including A Leaders Guide to the Middle School Confidential Series, a Meet the Students of Milldale Page, and a parenting podcast by Annie Fox Family Confidential: Secrets to Successful Parenting.

Below is a book trailer for the Middle School Confidential Series.

  1. I have used Book 1 in girls small group. I would love to use the series with all my 5th grade students. The graphic novel format will be engaging. I would continue to implement locker practice and a middle school tour.

  2. I think this would be a great series to help middle school students! After watching the video clip, I think this resource would be ideal to address the many issues middle school students experience on a daily basis. The language seems appropriate for middle school students with issues they can relate to. I'd love to have this resource!

  3. This series could be incorporated into the curriculum for the Student Skills class I'm teaching to 8th-graders this year. The "What's Up With My Family" unit sounds intriguing.

  4. We're currently trying to get some groups together and are looking for curriculum ideas! I think these books would be great for providing session ideas and content! And I absolutely love the iPad app. I work for a non-profit so giveaways definitely help us out ;-).

  5. I am at lost on what to do with my older kids in small groups.. this would be perfect! It has to be relevant AND fun! This series would be perfect in doing just that!

  6. Another great resource for small groups, individual counseling, and guidance classes. Sometimes it's hard to find materials that middle school students relate to, and these books look like they will do the trick! The app looks especially engaging.

  7. Oh my there are so many different ways to use this resource. The app could be placed on our webpage for parents and students to access anytime they want. This would be great in small groups or classroom guidance. For classroom lessons you could read a section and have the students break into groups to figure out how to help the character. The possibilities are endless. What a fabulous resource!

  8. I feel that middle school often gets lost in the shuffle between elementary and high school. Often times resources need to be adapted to fit middle schooler's needs. I really like the ideas of the books and app made for this age group. As many said it could be used for a small group. But I also think that they could be used for classroom lessons, as supplemental reading for a student who may be in the same situation, or even for a parent book club to help them understand the difficulties kids face in middle school.

  9. I could reaaaalllly use such a great resource for the middle-schoolers I work with at my K-6 internship site. The language is great and the more I am exposed to counseling at the elementary and middle-school levels the more I appreciate the importance of the "right" words when trying to reach these students!

  10. This would be great for my older students, it is hard to find materials that encourage older kids to open up!

  11. This would be great to use with small groups or individuals! I like that it uses language and quotes from real middle school students so that the students I work with don't feel like it's just adults telling them what to do or how to feel. Thanks so much for having this contest and providing links to all of these resources. I haven't won, but I've added everything to my wish list. :)
