From Idea to Action: Career Guidance Plans of Rural and Small Schools. Research and Development Series No. 148.
Altschuld, James W.; And Others
This handbook is designed to illustrate how nine rural schools, along with area postsecondary institutions, planned and implemented guidance and counseling programs and to help others similarly situated to do the same. It contains the ideas, strategies, obstacles, and accomplishments of field test sites in diverse geographic areas. This document is organized in the following manner. The introduction describes the parameters of the field test and the methodology behind the development of the handbook. Chapter 1 summarizes the results of the field test across the nine states and covers such topics as these: How did sites go about organizing planning committees?; What roles did the planning committees actually plan in the program planning process?; What unusual problems were there in coordinating program activities?; To what extent did postsecondary and secondary educational institutions cooperate in this endeavor?; How much time on the part of the coordinator is required?; Did the involved sites contribute other resources to the planning process, and if so, what were they? Chapter 2 contains recommendations based upon the results of the field test. Chapters 3-11 are the reports and plans from the nine field test sites. The individual reports and plans are followed by a series of appendixes that contain such items as project interview and reporting forms. (Author/BM)
