Classroom lessons taught by the counselors are presented to all students at South Middle School. The lessons cover academic, career, and personal/social content. The lessons are based on the West Virginia Counseling Program Model which is taken from the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Standards. The lessons will take place throughout the year in various classroom settings. Some of the classroom lessons this year will include an introduction to the counseling department, leadership training, conflict resolution, career exploration, college exploration, and organization.
