Vicki Brooks-McNamara,

The Reflective School Counselor′s Guide to Practitioner Research: Skills and Strategies for Successful Inquiry

About the eBook

"Like the little train that said ′I think I can, I think I can,′ this book tells school counselors, ′You can, you can′ do research. The text encourages and guides school counselors who have very little time and resources for research, enabling them to show and tell the differences that result from their programs."
—Angie Stansell, School Counselor
Hatton High School, Town Creek, AL

"This text can help any school counselor develop the observation and analytical skills to become a practitioner-inquirer. However, the book is much more than a collection of research techniques—it is a celebration of what is possible when school counselors pursue answers to their own questions about the students with whom they work. I predict this groundbreaking book will become a classic."
—Ruth Shagoury
Author, The Art of Classroom Inquiry
