Strategies for Vocational Educators and Counselors Working Together.
Gore, Jan, Ed.
This handbook contains materials from a guidance project to provide for articulation between vocational instructors and guidance personnel for more effective placement of disadvantaged persons into vocational programs. Contents include two workshops and a series of career planning and vocational strategies. The first workshop addresses the issues of awareness and action planning; the second covers career testing and planning approaches and updating action plans. Both provide information on planning, preparation, agenda, how to facilitate, forms, and workshop evaluation results. Almost 140 pages of the handbook are devoted to descriptions of strategies for change. The majority are one page long. These strategies are categorized into recruitment, career planning, testing and placement, meeting needs of special populations, equity, and student recognition. Each strategy follows this format: title, purpose, brief description, target audience, key people, place or field test, and example, procedure (also possible variations), and/or sample. (YLB)
