Due to the weather my last day of the semester was turned into a snow day! I usually travel to Roanoke City, VA to work in a middle school there but mother nature had other plans. Thankfully I was able to get a bit of rest today (much needed after a busy semester & internship) and then this evening I decided to be productive.
I have finished many of the quizzes for ASCA’s Bullying Prevention Specialist Training as of this evening – 6 to be exact! I do not have the books yet – I am checking out one from the library tomorrow and hoping that Inter-Library Loan will come through on the second one I need.
Also if your quizzes are not showing up for you – try re-registering. Thanks to Positively Elementary School Counseling for suggesting it. I had been waiting for weeks for them to show. I had never thought to re-register and until I read the facebook post about it. Also, I experienced some trouble with the ASCA quiz when using Google Chrome as my browser. When I switched to Internet Explorer I did not experience any trouble. So switching browsers is worth a shot if you are struggling with inconsistent grading of an answer.
Even though I have had a little bump along the way I have really enjoyed the articles. I wish I had had time to read some of them during the semester. I think I could have used some of the suggestions with a few of my students at my high school internship placement. The good news is I feel like I will be more prepared to work with middle school students after reading these articles.
I am wondering where to start on the action plan. I have never created something like that so I feel a little overwhelmed/lost by the idea of it. Do you have any good examples of action plans that I could check out?
How are you doing with the training?
Thanks for stopping by!
