PILOT PROJECT IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE, 1965-66.
JOHNSON, ADNA; AND OTHERS
A COMPLETE REVIEW OF AN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL GUIDANCE PILOT PROJECT IN SAVANNAH, GEORGIA, WAS PRESENTED. TWO CITY ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS IN INTEGRATED, DISADVANTAGED AREAS WERE SELECTED. PREPLANNING OF THE DUTIES OF THE GUIDANCE COUNSELOR, GOALS OF THE PILOT PROGRAMS, AND EDUCATION OF TEACHERS AND COMMUNITY WERE COMPLETED. GUIDELINES ON ANECDOTAL RECORD KEEPING, THE GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT LEVELS OF PUPILS, AND TEACHER-COUNSELOR ROLES WERE GIVEN. INSERVICE MEETINGS FOR TEACHERS WHICH WERE HELD TWICE A MONTH WERE DESCRIBED AND EVALUATED. ONE SECTION OF THE REPORT PRESENTS A TAPE OF INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING WITH A SIXTH GRADE BOY, AN ACCOUNT OF ANOTHER INTERVIEW, AND A DESCRIPTION OF THE GROUP COUNSELING HELD WITH STUDENTS AT VARIOUS GRADE LEVELS. EXAMPLES OF THE MEANS BY WHICH THE ELEMENTARY COUNSELOR'S ROLE AND GUIDANCE VIEWPOINT WERE CONVEYED TO LOCAL COMMUNITY GROUPS AND OTHER SCHOOL PERSONNEL WERE GIVEN. ONE STUDY WHICH WAS UNDERTAKEN DURING THE YEAR WAS ON READING TESTS WITH FIRST GRADERS. PRELIMINARY RESULTS SHOWED THE METROPOLITAN READING TESTS TO BE AN UNRELIABLE INSTRUMENT FOR USE WITH DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN. PLANS WERE MADE FOR FURTHER STUDY. THE REVIEW CONTAINED A THOROUGH EVALUATION OF EACH ASPECT OF THE PILOT PROGRAM AND THE PLANS FOR FUTURE MODIFICATIONS. (NS)
