GUIDANCE CURRICULUM FOR INCREASED SELF-UNDERSTANDING AND MOTIVATION FOR CAREER PLANNING. PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT OF RESEARCH PROGRAMS IN SELECTED AREAS OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION, VOLUME III.
SHERMAN, VIVIAN S.
THE METHODOLOGY USED IN DEVELOPING EXPERIMENTAL CURRICULUM MATERIALS (ED 010 626) FOR AN INNOVATIVE GUIDANCE PROGRAM IN CAREER PLANNING WAS PRESENTED. RESEARCH DATA, GATHERED DURING A QUESTIONNAIRE SURVEY OF STUDENT ATTITUDES AND INTERESTS RELEVANT TO CAREER PLANNING, WERE USED FOR THE CURRICULUM CONTENT. THE CONTENT FORMAT WAS ORGANIZED TO PROVIDE A FRAMEWORK OF RELEVANT AND MEANINGFUL INFORMATION FOR YOUTHS TO USE IN GAINING PERSPECTIVE ON THEMSELVES AND IN ACQUIRING APPRECIATION AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE DECISION-MAKING PROCESSES INVOLVED IN CAREER PLANNING. THE THEORETICAL CONSTRUCT OF DEVELOPMENTAL TASKS (TRYON AND LILIENTHAL, 1950) WAS USED AS ONE BASIS FOR CURRICULUM PLANNING. A TAXONOMY FOR EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES IN THE AFFECTIVE DOMAIN (KRATHWOHL AND OTHERS, 1964) WAS USED FOR DEFINING CURRICULUM OBJECTIVES, THE NATURE OF DESIRED LEARNING EXPERIENCES, AND MEANS OF EVALUATION. ALTHOUGH THE CURRICULUM WAS DEVELOPED FOR JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL GUIDANCE SESSIONS, A PRELIMINARY TRYOUT INDICATED THAT IT COULD BE READILY ADAPTED FOR USE WITH UPPER ELEMENTARY AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS AS WELL. STUDENTS EXPOSED TO THE CURRICULUM DURING THE TRYOUT APPEARED TO (1) RESPOND FAVORABLY TO THE NOVELTY OF CONTENT, AS IT WAS DIRECTLY RELATED TO THEIR PLANS AND PERSONAL CONCERNS, AND (2) USE AN OPEN-ENDED, SCIENTIFIC APPROACH IN RELATING THE CONTENT TO THEIR OWN EXPERIENCE. RELATED REPORTS ARE ED 010 623 THROUGH ED 010 626. (JH)
