This is the detailed lesson plan including a letter and activity sheet that goes with the 38 slide "What is a Counselor" PowerPoint presentation. It includes the standards and benchmarks. It is appropriate for all grade levels.
Using this presentation opens the door to explaining the job of a school counselor and how you can be of service to kids. It also talks about confidentiality and concepts that will be taught in guidance lessons.
Also, instruction on how to ask to see the counselor and office location are discussed in the presentation. A "Request for Appointment" form that can be printed off and made available in classrooms is included in the lesson plan. I send these out to teachers at the beginning of each year.
