35 LEVEL 1 LICENSURE PORTFOLIO PART III Purpose Principles to Be Addressed Documents Required Directions Entry 6: Reflection and Vision Candidates analyze and reflect upon their counseling sessions, their classroom guidance instruction, and plan for their development as school counselors. Principle # 14: The school counselor grows professionally through a variety of approaches, to improve professional practice and student development. Analysis and reflection essay. Use this entry to express who you are as a school counselor at this time. Your entry must include a written narrative in which you refer to particular experiences and theoretical constructs that have shaped your understandings. Evaluate the extent to which your experiences are congruent with your beliefs about school counseling and student development. Use your reflections and analyses from entries one through five, evaluations from your supervisor(s) and cooperating teacher(s), school counseling experiences, and theoretical understandings, to identify areas for continued professional growth to improve your counseling skills, classroom guidance delivery and student development. Sample Prompts 1.) If one of your favorite theorists (Rogers, White, etc.) were in the room now, what would she/he/ze say about your counseling? Five years later, what else would he/she see? 2.) Use images and artifacts from your graduate school experience and create a video voice-over telling your story.

36 3.) Tell the story of how you ve evolved as a school counselor and where you are going. 4.) Have a dialogue between you now, and you later. Talk about the part of you prior to your school counseling internship, the part of you during your school counseling internship, and the part that you imagine yourself to be 5 years in the future. 5.) What are your biases/prejudices? How have these influenced your practice? Tell a story of how you plan to address them. 6.) Highlight in your first five entries where you were reflective. What patterns occur? (To do this, you might cut and paste your reflections; create a collage of them: make a portrait of you as a school counselor.) 7.) Evaluate the extent to which your experiences are congruent with your theory and practice. 8.) What experiences have had the greatest impact on your growth as a school counselor? 9.) Use one metaphor to reveal your evolution as a school counselor. 10.) Hold a dialogue with yourself and a favorite theorist regarding your philosophy and school counseling practices.
