PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Existential Counseling can do wonders in the Classroom.

Isn't it the most frustrating thing ever when people complain about the state of the world, or their community, or their school, but don't change their actions to be more congruent with the way they wish things were? Good thing we're counselors, i.e. agents of change, i.e. awesome. This 45 minute lesson addresses that mediocre mindset through innovative application of basic math and science.

This download comes complete with a PDF presentation addressing:

♥ The question of purpose
♥ The concept of place
♥ The concept of finite/fixed time
♥ Average use of time among American teens/adults (displayed using ratios of cheeseburgers)
♥ Wise use of time versus "killing time"
♥ The concept of using talents in helpful ways
♥ Community responsibility
♥ Ethical business and leadership practices
♥ Ways of living as modes of transforming community climate
♥ The concept of our ways of living impacting future generations

These concepts are linked to address purpose, but can be used as a springboard for other lessons or divided into 3 micro-lessons. 11 discussion questions are included to springboard reinforcement of these topics.

As counselors part of our role is teaching scholars to think critically about their actions and ways of living, and perhaps especially about how congruent those ways of living are with their hopes for themselves and their communities. This lesson provides real talk on a really important topic, and manages to do so in the most approachable, cool way possible.

Who said school counseling lessons couldn’t reinforce science and math standards? Not you. You reinforce ASCA standards with Common Core like it’s eating chocolate, which is to say easy as pie.
