3 2 HANDBOOK FOR SCHOOL COUNSELING Pre K - Grade 12 Acceptance into the school counseling licensure concentration requires that, students will be familiar with all aspects of the school counseling program: competency checklist for licensure, program requirements, background requirements, as well as procedures and protocols to be met before completion of the internship experience (See Appendices.) CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK A single conceptual framework for all teacher education programs has been defined at Tennessee Technological University. This conceptual framework serves as a common knowledge base for all programs preparing education personnel. Central to the content of this framework is the requirement that the graduate will be a competent, caring professional who can work effectively in a diverse, technological society. Graduates will demonstrate an appropriate level of scholarship, effective communication, skills of reflection that promote self-evaluation and growth, respect for diversity, and skills of collaboration with other professionals, families, and community. The Teacher Education programs of the University are designed to provide a high level of competence in general education, discipline specialization, and pedagogy (both professional and specialized professional). All programs are designed to relate theory and practice. There is a heavy emphasis on clinical and field-based experiences. Through these efforts, the adequacies of the students knowledge and skills to teach in specified areas can be determined. The school counselor preparation program incorporates this rationale to assure that candidates for licensure will acquire the specified knowledge and skills. The school counseling program prepares graduate students to perform the duties required of a counselor in Grades Pre K 12. While the instructional program in Grades Pre K 12 is the primary purpose for a school s existence, the counseling program can provide necessary support functions to help the instructional program work effectively. In both the public and private school setting, the ultimate goal is the maximum development of each student s academic potential. Other outcomes, such as the acquisition of cultural values and the development of self-esteem and social-participation skills are not only additional desirable objectives but may also assist students in the learning process. For schools to reach their student development goals, counseling graduates should be prepared to plan, organize, and implement an effective counseling program which includes services to students (counseling, assessment, advisement, consultation, and guidance), parents (consultation), teachers (consultation), and other school personnel including school administrators, school psychologists, and school social workers (consultation). Graduates of the TTU school counseling program will be able to apply the standards of the Tennessee Model for Comprehensive School Counseling. (Rev 10/05)
4 3 PURPOSE OF THIS HANDBOOK The present document is intended to introduce students to the requirements for the satisfactory completion of TTU s School Counseling concentration. Included in this document is information concerning required paperwork, processes for selection of schools and site supervisors/mentors, and suggestions for effective interaction among TTU, site supervisors and the school counseling graduate student/intern. The document will identify prerequisites for internship at both the MA and EdS levels. No one source can hope to prepare an intern for all situations at a placement site. PURPOSE OF THE INTERNSHIP The internship is a learning experience that builds upon the coursework, state requirements for licensure and culminates in the development of a fully functioning school counselor. As it is with other licensure preparation programs, the school counseling internship experience serves as the pinnacle of counselor preparation. The intern is expected to assume, as much as possible, the role of a professional counselor with the guidance and feedback of the supervising/mentor counselor. The internship is designed to relate theoretical and academic learning to real life professional experience. The 600 hours of experience is designed to provide the intern with practical experiences in school settings with students Pre K through Grade 12 and is constructed to meet state requirements by having the intern serve 300 hours at the elementary and 300 hours at the secondary school levels. This direct internship experience includes, but is not limited to: individual counseling, group work, developmental classroom guidance, and consultation. Process/ procedures and protocols, including forms to be completed during the internship as verification, will be discussed, monitored and reviewed by the TTU advisor, school counseling program coordinator and/or the instructor assigned to the internship course. The internship experiences allow the intern to receive feedback about his/her skills, professional behavior, and knowledge and to help him/her prepare for continuous improvement in his/her chosen profession. APPLICATION PROCEDURES 1. School counseling graduate level students are required to have adequate and appropriate preparation (a minimum of 12 background credit hours) at the undergraduate level by having taken approved background courses as prerequisites. The courses are to be approved by the faculty advisor and should include, but may not be limited to, coursework in the following: curriculum development, special education, learning theories and social foundations. These approved courses are transferred to the Program of Study as background courses, not to be counted toward graduate degree. 2. For those students who are able to transfer those background courses, as outlined in #1 above, but who have no experience in the school setting, a 1 credit hour orientation class will be required the first semester. This course will meet state requirements and will also allow the student to obtain necessary experience in the school setting.
5 4 3. Both the Graduate Catalog and the policy of the Department require the interns to complete a minimum of the core counseling courses before enrolling in an internship course. Those courses are: Orientation to Counseling (or equivalent), Theories and Techniques, Advanced Skills (or Practicum) and Group Counseling. Usually, students are near completion of their program of study before beginning an internship for any of the counseling programs. 4. Before placement at the Ed.S. level, the requirements for the MA in School Counseling Pre K-12 must be met. 5. Students must apply for internship the semester before taking the course. In general, placement may be made only during Spring and Fall Semesters. The deadlines are the week before final examinations. 6. It is recommended that students make arrangements to take the Specialty exam of the Praxis during their internship. When notice is received that the student has passed, it is critical that an appointment be made with the TTU, College of Education, Office of Teacher Education, to ensure that all forms and state requirements are met and that the paperwork can be completed for licensure. 7. The counseling faculty will work with the student in arranging placements at the most appropriate sites. Final placement is subject to approval by the university supervisor, the placement school counselor, and the placement school administrator/principal. NOTE: The policy of the Counseling and Psychology Department is to place interns in diverse settings as per state requirements. 8. Students will be provided a course syllabus, required forms and explanations of expectations to be completed by the TTU faculty supervisor and/or departmental advisor. 9. As outlined in the Graduate Portfolio, all interns must provide proof of liability coverage prior to school placement. This information is also presented in the Orientations or Introduction to Counseling course. 10. Students must also know the ethical and legal guidelines that are applicable to the school setting. The American Counseling Association s ethical guidelines and legal requirements are discussed in course offerings and intern meetings. Copies are available on-line for student review.
6 5 ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF SUPERVISORS University Supervisor. The university supervisor assists students in completing the internship experience. The supervisor will provide timely supervision, critique student work products, consult with the mentor counselor concerning the intern s progress, assure all required forms are completed, assess performance and assign the course grade. In short, the university supervisor will assist the intern to meet university and state requirements and to prepare the intern for licensure. Site Supervisor/Mentor Counselor. Site supervisors (sometimes called mentor counselors), are licensed, experienced professionals in the school systems in which the intern is placed. These site counselors must be licensed by the Board of Education. They must have a minimum of two years experience as licensed, practicing school counselors. As much as possible, counselors are expected to be active in professional organizations and professional community activities. The mentor counselors will be selected by the university/faculty supervisor in cooperation with the school administrators; the student s needs relevant to location, previous knowledge of the school and/or staff, will be taken into consideration. The site supervisor counselor is to provide on-site supervision, guidance and mentoring to the intern. The mentor will assist the intern in completing the experience at that site, discuss progress, communicate with university supervisor as needed and participate in the evaluation of the student. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 1. Ideally, the MA and Ed.S contact hours will be completed during the course of a semester. However, TTU is cognizant of the fact that a majority of students are not full-time students. Part-time students must register for the internship course before starting their placement. Those students not completing internship requirements during the semester will be awarded a grade of I. The intern will have one year to remove the I before it turns into an F. (See University Catalog). All students, both full and part-time students must work closely with their site and university/faculty supervisors to ensure all requirements are met. 2. Prior to placement, the intern will have an initial interview with the mentor counselor at the school site. This meeting may be arranged by either the student or the faculty supervisor. Faculty supervisors must have prior knowledge of this interview to help prepare the student for this face-to-face at the selected site. 3. The intern and supervising school counselor will mutually develop a schedule for the experience. Interns are required to keep a log of their activities which will be verified by the mentor counselor and presented to the university supervisor. Examples of logs are available from the university supervisor and will be provided before the internship begins. 4. The intern is expected to complete a number of on-site assignments required by the site and the university supervisor. These will be clearly communicated.
7 6 5. The intern will provide the mentor counselor and the university supervisor with a schedule of the dates of the semester as well as dates (holidays, classes, etc.) when the student will not be available to be present at the site. 6. The intern will spend a minimum of one hour per ten contact hours with the mentor counselor for supervision. If any concerns arise concerning the supervision, the student should first meet with the mentor counselor. Should problems persist, the intern should relate these concerns to the university supervisor. Meetings with the site supervisor should be documented in the log. 7. The university supervisor will visit the site/sites to meet with the mentor counselor and intern during the term. During such visits, the university supervisor will discuss the intern s progress and may wish to observe the intern in his/her activities. 8. The intern is required to meet on a regularly scheduled basis in a group setting with the university professor, as assigned 9. Evaluations of the intern will be completed by the site supervising/mentor counselor near the end of the intern s experience at that site. The forms will be explained and given to the intern at the beginning of the experience so evaluation criteria are clear. The intern will be responsible for distribution of appropriate forms. 10. The intern will also evaluate his/her supervising mentor counselor and will document his/her experience as assigned by university supervisor. RULES OF COMMON SENSE Counselors are role models. The intern will dress appropriately and in accordance with the site dress codes. The intern is a professional and will behave accordingly. He/she will be punctual and meet all obligations in a professional manner. If possible, the intern should go to the placement site well in advance of the time the experience begins to become acquainted with co-workers and the placement s procedures. The intern should become involved with as many of the site s activities as possible. These are unique learning opportunities that will add to one s experience.
