The Professional School Counselor

This Course Guide provides pointers for getting started with your research. It includes links to key library subscription resources, including article databases, journals and books, as well as open web content.  Use the tabs above to find the type of information you need.

The significance of the structures, theories, philosophies, various pedagogical approaches, basic research designs, and educational paradigms necessary in order to develop a productive educational climate will be presented, and the effect of these on enhancing the social, emotional, physical, and psychological aspects of K-12 students will be carefully considered. Effective use of technology as a tool in educational situations will be emphasized.

Don't forget that you can also find general resources on the education Program Guides. If you would like additional help with your research projects, or with learning how to use library resources, email the library.
