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, APPENDIX.
SHERMAN, VIVIAN S.
EXPERIMENTAL MATERIALS THAT WERE DEVELOPED FOR THE VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE OF JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WERE PRESENTED IN THIS APPENDIX TO ED 010 625. THESE MATERIALS WERE PLANNED TO ENABLE STUDENTS TO THOROUGHLY AND SYSTEMATICALLY EXPLORE THEIR OWN SELF-PERCEPTIONS, ATTITUDES, PERSONAL VALUES, ACHIEVEMENT, ABILITIES, AND DIVERSE CAREER POSSIBILITIES. DEVELOPMENT OF THE MATERIALS WAS GUIDED BY THE HOPE THAT THEY WOULD ENABLE THE STUDENTS TO EMERGE FROM LEARNING EXPERIENCES WITH CLEARER CONCEPTIONS OF WHO THEY ARE AND WHERE THEY ARE GOING. SAMPLE STUDENT WORK SHEETS, QUESTIONNAIRES, AND READING AND WRITING MATERIALS WERE INCLUDED FOR ALL LESSONS. THE QUESTIONNAIRE RESPONSES OF APPROXIMATELY 100 BOYS AND GIRLS (GRADES 6, 8, 10, AND 12) WERE PRESENTED IN GRAPH FORM TO ALLOW STUDENTS USING THESE STUDY MATERIALS TO LOOK AT THE CAREER PLANS AND ATTITUDES OF A SAMPLE OF THEIR PEERS WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY VIEWING AND EVALUATING THEIR OWN. ALTHOUGH DEVELOPED FOR USE WITH JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS, THE AUTHOR SUGGESTED THE MATERIALS WERE ALSO SUITABLE FOR USE BY STUDENTS IN THE UPPER ELEMENTARY GRADES OR AT THE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL. INCLUDED WITH THE MATERIALS WERE TEACHING GUIDELINES AND EVALUATION SHEETS FOR A RECOMMENDED FOLLOWUP EVALUATION OF THE EMPIRICAL EFFECTS OF THE CURRICULUM MATERIALS. RELATED REPORTS ARE ED 010 623 THROUGH ED 010 626. (JH)
