Crabby congratulates himself…
Crabby is pleased to announce that the Fundamentals of College Admission Counseling, 3rd Edition, has been released through the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC). It contains his chapter on approaching the college essay. Geared toward graduate students and practicing counselors, the book contains many helpful essays on the many aspects of college counseling in high school. It can be purchased in hard copy form or as a Kindle download. Crabby highly recommends it for those individuals who may have been the last person in the room when the school head asked, “Who wants to be our college counselor?”
Aside from this book, NACAC has many other helpful pamphlets, brochures, and instructional books that can help experienced as well as novice college counselors learn the ropes and communicate with students and their families. Most can be had inexpensively, especially if you purchase in bulk to hand out at parent nights. Spanish versions of some documents are also available.
Oct. 24 note: Crabby has just learned that due to some misprints, the 3rd edition may not be immediately available. Be on the lookout for the corrected version sometime in the near future.
