The plan will be useful to many educators throughout the country. Part One of this paper deals with counselor effectiveness. Guidance and counseling program modes as well as change opportunities are discussed. Part Two discusses research and theories available to the counselor.

The plan combines developmental psychology, community-based education, moral development, and career education. A sample plan and the steps for its institution are provided. Part Four evaluates the basic structure of the action plan. Hallmarks of the plan are a holistic concern for the student, and simplicity. Adoptibility to subject matter, moral development, social interaction with the community, enhancement of a vocational self-image, and room for creative are positive features. (Author/JLL)
