Counselor Resources has a new website!!

We are excited to share that Counselor Resources has a new home

Don't miss a beat

Guided by the framework and values set forth in the American School Counselor Association's National Model, School Counselor Resources each year evaluates hundreds of publications, videos, posters, games, and other promising materials. We find the very best ones to help counselors deliver appropriate services to students, parents, educators, and the wider school community, and we describe those resources as objectively as we can.

Everything You Need

The Center for Learning provides top quality educational resources that can be used in classrooms nation-wide. This site brings together resources from established publishers like Interact, Good Year Books, Mindsparks, and J. Westin Walch, as well as from important imprints like the Writing Co. and Counselor Resources.

With materials for grades K-12 and across a variety of subjects, this is the place for educators to find everything they need in one place. Discover some of the products you can find on our new site below.

I Wish My Teacher Knew

What will your students answer if you ask them to respond honestly to this prompt: "I wish my teacher knew ______." Dozens of emotional and insightful handwritten notes from real students reveal the power of the prompt to help teachers and counselors better understand the challenges their students face and so to help them handle problems and grow as individuals. Interspersed are stories from teachers and family members.
