Classroom guidance is structured lessons in the classroom that focus on knowledge of self and others (interpersonal and intrapersonal skills), academic skills, and career exploration and planning.  Classroom guidance is one way school counselors work with all students, providing classroom lessons in collaboration with classroom teachers.  Classroom guidance lessons are developmentally appropriate and structured to meet the needs of students in that particular grade level.
