Wisconsin School Counselor Association
2011 Fall Summit
Globe University – Green Bay
Thursday, October 27, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Program Development with Guided Instruction
The primary goal of the Fall Summit is to have a hands-on learning experience, providing work time with guided instruction. We will be putting theory into practice while making our comprehensive programs come alive.
The focus of this learning community is for counselors to collaborate on several topics related to program development and work in small groups to share work and ideas.
Counselors will be able to walk away with new curriculum or begin work on the application process for the RAMP (Recognized ASCA National Model Program) or the SPARC-W (The Support Personnel Accountability Report Card for Wisconsin). Peer review and evaluation will improve product quality.
Fall Summit 2011 Choices
We will begin the day in one large group and then break into smaller learning communities. Selected topics are a result of our membership survey and the WSCA two-year work plan. Participants will choose between the following:
Option One: Curriculum Development
Participants will write curriculum for their content topic theme areas. They will use their district model or learn about the Backward Design model used by CESA #8. Participants will be able to submit their lessons to the CESA #8 clearinghouse after peer review and recommendations. Counselors will have an opportunity to exchange lessons to bring to their own school or district team.
Option Two: Accountability
Taking your program to the next level, counselors can show administrators, school board and the community their data and results. Evidenced -based programming resulting in student achievement underlies the accountability section of the ASCA National Model diamond and shows how counselors and comprehensive programs make a difference. Participants will be introduced to the RAMP (Recognized ASCA National Model Program) and SPARC-W (The Support Personnel Accountability Report Card for Wisconsin) and begin small group work in developing their application.
Laptops Required: This workshop will be hands-on. Bring a flashdrive to share work.
Enrollment Limited: The workshop format necessitates a smaller working group.
