A STUDY OF A NEW AND DRAMATIC APPROACH TO VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE THROUGH THE USE OF EXHIBITS AND DISPLAYS.
WALSH, GEORGE A.
THIS IS A DESCRIPTION OF A NEW APPROACH TO VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE THROUGH THE USE OF EXHIBITS AND DISPLAYS. THE CHOICE OF APPROXIMATELY 150 SPECIFIC OCCUPATIONS TO BE EXHIBITED WAS BASED ON SUCH CRITERIA AS (1) PROJECTED NUMBER OF WORKERS IN EACH OCCUPATION, (2) APPEAL OF SELECTED OCCUPATIONS TO SECONDARY, TRADE, AND TECHNICAL SCHOOLS, (3) APPEAL OF SELECTED OCCUPATIONS TO POTENTIAL DROPOUTS, AND (4) EXHIBIT POSSIBILITIES OF SELECTED OCCUPATIONS. STUDENTS FROM GRADES 7 THROUGH 12 SERVED AS THE OPTIMUM EXPERIMENTAL GROUP TO ATTEND THE EXHIBITION. PLANS WERE INITIATED FOR EXPOSURE OF THE EXHIBITION TO COLLEGE STUDENTS AND INTERESTED ADULTS. THE EXHIBIT DESIGN PROVIDES AN INTERESTING LAYOUT AS WELL AS AN EXCELLENT TRAFFIC FLOW. IN ADDITION, IT PROVIDES MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY FOR ADAPTATION TO VARIOUS ROOM SIZES AND SHAPES AS WELL AS THE ADDITION OR DELETION OF DISPLAY MATERIAL WITHOUT ADDING MAJOR ALTERATION COSTS. AN EVALUATION OF THE APPROACH WAS NOT PRESENTED. (AW)
