New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Vocational Education.
It is the role of the school to assist the individual toward appropriate educational and occupational experiences. Twenty-five New Jersey high schools endeavored to improve their programs for career development by sponsoring innovative guidance projects. The projects explored and developed guidelines in five areas: (1) Special vocational guidance and counseling projects compared new and traditional methods in order to improve the effectiveness of such services, (2) School community coordinator projects developed methods for improving communication between inner-city people and the school, (3) Multi-media techniques projects designed and produced materials to assist the student in clarifying his self-image, (4) Vocational awareness for elementary school students projects explored foundations for career decisions and implications for curriculum development, and (5) Placement coordinator projects placed students in part-time jobs as an aid in exploring their abilities and interests and in motivating them to make meaningful high school or post-high school vocational decisions. Information is included on summer institutes for counselors and on counselor educator seminars. A related document is available as VT 011 002 in this issue. (CH)
