NEW MODELS AND TECHNIQUES IN CAREER GUIDANCE.
BOYNTON, RALPH E.
A MODEL FOR A CAREER GUIDANCE SYSTEM THAT APPEARS TO EFFECT POSITIVE CHANGE FOR STUDENTS, SCHOOLS, AND THE COMMUNITY IS PRESENTED. THERE ARE FOUR PHASES TO THE MODEL, ONE FOR EACH YEAR THE STUDENT IS IN HIGH SCHOOL. THE STUDENT'S SKILLS, APTITUDES, INTERESTS, INTELLIGENCE, AND ACHIEVEMENTS ARE DETERMINED AT INITIAL FACT GATHERING SESSIONS. THIS INFORMATION IS STORED IN A COMPUTER. THE STUDENT MAY OBTAIN INFORMATION FROM THE COMPUTER ABOUT GRADES, COURSES TAKEN, AND COLLEGE ACCEPTANCE. THE COUNSELOR RECEIVES A COPY OF ALL SUCH SESSIONS. STUDENTS ARE ASSIGNED BY THE COMPUTER TO DISCUSSION GROUPS WHICH FOCUS ON THE SELECTION OF OCCUPATIONAL OBJECTIVES. CAREER SEMINARS PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH OPPORTUNITIES TO TALK WITH REPRESENTATIVES OF CAREERS IN WHICH THEY HAVE AN INTEREST. WHERE FEASIBLE, SENIOR YEAR STUDENTS ARE GIVEN WORK EXPERIENCE OPPORTUNITIES. THIS TYPE OF APPROACH APPEARS MEANINGFUL FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE NOT COLLEGE ORIENTED. THE USE OF A SYSTEMS APPROACH, PEER GROUPS FOR COUNSELING, AND COMMUNITY RESOURCES SEEMS TO OPERATE EFFECTIVELY IN PREPARING STUDENTS TO TAKE THEIR PLACE IN THE ECONOMIC LIFE OF A COMMUNITY. (SK)
