Lucy Said:

Kevin Said:

Is it a good idea to work in different type of fields?

We Answered:

I think your biggest problem will be giving up what will be a well-paid job after ten years to go to med school, where your income will be much less until you get your MD, complete your residency, etc. You may have a family who you will have to support and they may not want to suffer for your self-realization.

Procrastination (High SchooleR)?

We Answered:

Keep reading as fast as you can. Don't be afraid to scan a paragraph, pick out the topic sentence and scan. You will do fine.

Erika Said:

reading strategy for inclusion classroom with special ed students?

We Answered:

You can use it either with the whole group or in small groups. Either way, you would run it like a literature circle. Everyone would have a job (discussion leader, etc.) and the jobs should rotate daily.
You'll need to introduce the book. Once students are in to it, they can take turns introducing the next chapter. Students then engage in individual notetaking/questioning as they listen to the tape/cd. Allow time at the end of each class for discussion and clarification within the group and with you.
Don't forget that one of the tasks they should practice every day are the reading strategies good readers know (i.e., rereading, close vocabulary, making predictions, etc.). Try to work that into the groups' daily routine, and have them practice each one for two or three days.

How can I improve my ACT scores from a 22 to at least a 30?

We Answered:

22 to 30?
holy hell man, you better study your butt off haha. but its completely doable.
-to focus, they have these natural focusing supplements for sale that will help a lot (attentive child, no-doz, etc.)
-to read faster just practice. eventually youll reach the point where you will understand where to focus and where to skip the fluff.
-yes, skip the passages and find the questions then scan to find the portion it is about.
-science part. don't get scared. the graphs make sense, but just dont worry about them. maybe study a few online or something, the only thing i suggest is for the ACT prep. WONDERFUL site.
-also, suck on mints durign the test. it keeps you alert.
good luck, you should be able to get whatever score neccessary as long as you try very very hard.

Anyone know the differences b/t School Counseling and School Psychology? There are alot of discepancies online

We Answered:

To clarify, the only person in the school system qualified to conduct evaluations for learning disabilities is a school psychologist. With the push toward the Response to Intervention model of identifying learning disabilities, school psychologists are going to have a more "hands on" role implementing and tracking the success rate of learning interventions than school counselors will. Additionally, as a school psychologist you will also be qualified to counsel students on the issues you mentioned (school counselors are as well, obviously).

As for your thoughts of getting your Masters in school counseling and then going on to get your Ph.D./Psy.D. in school psychology, I really think you're going to end up spending more time and money in school than is really necessary. First off, not all of your school counseling classes are going to transfer over for your school psychology degree, so you're going to end up taking a ton of classes. You could complete your Ed.S. degree in school psychology in three years or, if you wanted to get your doctorate, complete that in about four-five years. However, I urge you to look into the pay scales of the school districts...most of the times the extra pay you get for having your Ph.D. in the school systems is not enough to make up for the amount of extra loans you're going to have to take out to complete your degree (unless you're wealthy now and that's not an issue). It may take you an additional $20,000-$30,000 to get your Ph.D. (on top of the $25,000 it will take for you to get your Ed.S.) when it's only going to bring you in another $1000-$1500 a year in most school districts. The only reason to pursue a doctorate is if you might want to teach in the University setting one day...some states (at least here in Florida) allow you to practice privately with an Ed.S. degree.

So, to summarize, based on both of your career interests (testing students for learning disabilities/developing classroom strategies to deal with their deficits and the counseling aspect) the best choice for you is school psychology. Simply put, a school psychologist is the only person who is qualified to do both of those things...the school counselor would only be qualified to focus on the counseling aspect.

Ideally for your career, I could see you being assigned to a high/middle school and an elementary school (most school psychologists are assigned to more than one school). In the elementary setting, more of your focus would be on the reading/math/writing interventions and identification of learning disabilities and in the high/middle school more of your focus would be on the counseling aspect. That's not to say there won't be overlap at the school settings, it just tends to "work out" that way.

Feel free to contact me if you have any other questions I might be able to help you with!
