counselors and observe daily activities in K-12 schools. Practicum sites are assigned by the Field
Placement Coordinator. In class, students work in pairs or teams to identify and explore an
actual, school-based problem or issue related to school counseling, using the principles of
collaborative action research and literature regarding social justice in education. They present
their proposed project at the end of the semester at the KSOE Action Research Conference.
Students also gain knowledge about the history of the field of school counseling, models of
school counseling, the role of the school counselor as a leader and social justice advocate, and
the work of national and state organizations representing school counselors.

psychologist). Familiarity with online modalities.
