Project PLAN: The Basic Role of Guidance in Individualizing Education.
Flanagan, John C.
The inadequacy of the traditional educational program has been clearly shown in the results of Project Talent. To remedy these defects, the Project PLAN Educational system includes six principle components: (1) an extensive informational program describing the opportunities, roles, and activities for which the student might prepare; (2) ability and interest testing and interpretation of these in relation to the available opportunities; (3) a series of units and practical exercises designated to develop the student's skill in decision making; (4) a means to the information and skills gained in the three activities mentioned above to assist the student in formulating his personal goals; (5) a way of helping each student plan an educational program to enable him to achieve these goals; and (6) a system to develop the student's skill in managing the program of development which will enable him to carry out his educational plans and achieve his life goals. Experience with this program in PLAN during the past year suggests that this type of computer-supported individualized education, based on an effective set of guidance procedures, offers much promise in enabling each of our young people to achieve personal fulfillment.
