Academic Habits and College and Career Readiness
Students who struggle in school may lack the strategies to effectively approach and manage learning. These skills are required not only for K-12 education but also postsecondary opportunities. Explore the connections between David Conley’s research on college and career readiness and school counseling standards, and be able to articulate how school counseling standards support postsecondary readiness. Focus on the academic habits necessary for postsecondary readiness, identify ways to incorporate academic habits curriculum in classroom lessons and small groups, and obtain the knowledge to serve as consultants to teachers and parents to support development of effective academic habits in students.

• Be able to articulate how school counseling standards support the development of academic habits and postsecondary readiness.
