(PACS)
Positive Academic
Counseling for Students
The Power of One
The influence of one person on the success of
another is an undeniable fact of life.
http://www.oconee.k12.sc.us/WalhallaHS.cfm
A good teacher-adviser:
(PACS)
 Knows the student-not just the student’s
work.
 Knows about the whole student, his or her
goals and family, as well as what is happening
to the student in school.
 Teaches the “soft skills” needed for success in
education, careers and life.
 Connects students with the larger mission of
the school and of education: preparation for
life!
Creating an advisement system that
teaches the Habits of Success:
(PACS)
 Advisers stay with the same students
throughout high school.
 Develop a curriculum and a calendar
and stay true to both.
 Make the curriculum teacher friendly.
 Provide intensive professional
development.
 Use teacher-leaders to facilitate
curriculum development.

Boomerangs
Phil and Cath make and
sell boomerangs for a
school event. The money
they raise will go to
charity. They plan to make
them in two sizes: small
and large
http://www.map.mathshell.org/materials/lessons.php
42
Boomerangs, continued
• Phil will carve them from wood. The small
boomerang takes 2 hours to carve and the
large one takes 3 hours to carve. Phil has a
total of 24 hours available for carving.
Cath will decorate them. She only has time
to decorate 10 boomerangs of either size.
• The small boomerang will make $8 for
charity. The large boomerang will make
$10 for charity.
• They want to make as much money for
charity as they can. How many small and
large boomerangs should they make? How
much money will they then make?

Creating Positive, Productive
Relationships
Two central principles:
1. Positive change cannot occur in isolation. In
order for children to feel supported, the whole
class, as well as the teacher, must be cheering
for them, and believing transformations can
occur.
2. Classroom power has to be shared among its
members. Children are more likely to work hard
at learning if they’re included in the process of
running the classroom and making decisions.”

It’s the Culture!
“The most important determining factor
in an organization or a school in
building an environment of trust and a
culture of success is the level and
quality of positive energy expended by
all its stakeholders through the
relationships of its members.”

Positive Relationships
Self-theory
“Our beliefs about ourselves and the
nature of our abilities—our selftheories—determine how we
interpret our experiences and can set
the boundaries on what we
accomplish.”

Teacher’s Self-talk
 What teachers say to themselves about
themselves is very important.
 What teachers say to themselves about
students is vital.
 When teachers have good thoughts
about themselves, they are more positive
about their students.
 Positive teacher self-talk about students
involves viewing students as able,
valuable, and responsible.

Examining How important is it for me to learn
Importance this information or procedure?
Examining How competent do I feel in regards

Which comes first?
Change in Behavior

Change in Attitude?

The Inviting School and Staff
1. Intentionally Disinviting (Deliberately discouraging; Busy
with other obligations; Focused on students’
shortcomings).
2. Unintentionally Disinviting (Well-meaning, but
condescending; Obsessed with policies and procedures;
Unaware of students’ feelings).
3. Unintentionally Inviting (Well-liked and reasonably
effective; Inconsistent and uncertain in decision-making).
Counselors and teachers who are “naturals”, but who are
unaware of the nature and good effects of their behavior.
4. Intentionally Inviting (Optimistic, respectful, and
trustworthy; Able to affirm yet guide students). Teachers
and counselors who explicitly invite students, teachers,
administrators, and parents and are able to adjust and
evaluate their invitations as necessary.

“Each student deserves a high-quality
academic education that lays the
groundwork for success in adulthood.
Today’s high schools must prepare
students to enroll in college or complete
a training program, or to enter the
workforce at a level where they are
expected to think critically and solve
problems, learn new skills, and be in line
for promotion and career advancement.”
Rethinking High School
Corbett and Huebner
Concluding…
“The most important determining
factor in an organization or a school
in building an environment of trust
and a culture of success is the level
and quality of positive energy
expended by all its stakeholders
through the relationships of its
members.”
