GROUP GUIDANCE FOR UPPER ELEMENTARY GRADES, SEVEN AND EIGHT.
HOFFMAN, WAYNE
THE DISTINGUISHING CHARACTERISTIC OF GROUP GUIDANCE IS THE OPPORTUNITY IT PROVIDES FOR THE INTERACTION OF THE GROUP IN MATTERS OF CURRENT AND PERSONAL CONCERN TO THE PUPILS AND FOR THEIR INTERNALIZATION OF IDEAS, INFORMATION, ATTITUDES, AND VALUES. THE PUPIL IS HIS OWN ULTIMATE SUBJECT OF STUDY, AND HE MUST BE AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN THE PROCESS. A CLASS-SIZED GROUP IS OPTIMUM FOR THESE ACTIVITIES AND ALLOWS FOR THE IMPARTING OF SPECIFIC INFORMATION THROUGH DISCUSSIONS, MOVIES, AND SPEAKERS. EACH PUPIL SHOULD DEVELOP REALISTIC IMAGES ABOUT HIMSELF AND THE OPPORTUNITIES OPEN TO HIM, AND SHOULD FORMULATE, PLAN FOR, AND ACHIEVE WORTHY AND REALISTIC GOALS WITH EVER-INCREASING SELF-DIRECTION. THE FOUR UNITS COVERED ARE "GETTING THE MOST OUT OF SCHOOL" (LOOKING AT MY SCHOOL, AND GETTING THE MOST OUT OF LEARNING), "GETTING TO KNOW OURSELVES AND OTHERS" (DETERMINING OUR PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS, EXPLORING OUR PROBLEMS AS TEENAGERS, MAKING AND KEEPING FRIENDS, AND LIVING WITH ADULTS), "DISCOVERING MORE ABOUT OURSELVES" (EXPLORING OUR INTERESTS, AND DISCOVERING OUR ABILITIES), "DISCOVERING OPPORTUNITIES FOR SELF-DEVELOPMENT" (DISCOVERING EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, DISCOVERING VOCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES, AND PARTICIPATING IN COMMUNITY LIVING). BIBLIOGRAPHIES ARE INCLUDED AT THE END OF EACH SECTION.
