State of Maine Comprehensive Life-Long Guidance Plan.
McLaughlin, Betty L.; And Others
This guidance plan was prepared to assist counselors in establishing quality programs with an emphasis on work-related education and training and to serve as a model for developing competency-based and accountable programs at the local level. The first section defines guidance terms and presents an overview of basic premises for guidance program development including providers, settings, and expectations for such programs. The second section provides a basic program framework including fundamental components to a complete guidance delivery system: (1) guidance; (2) counseling; (3) appraisal; (4) information and referral; (5) placement; and (6) staff, facilities, and budget. Goals, objectives, and appropriate developmental stages are provided for each component in a chart format. Space is provided for counselors to note current practices, and strengths and weaknesses in each area. Activities are also suggested for each component. The third section addresses desired student outcomes resulting from the guidance model. Each of 12 outcomes is listed on a separate page which is designed to serve as a status and needs assessment instrument, with space for rating existing efforts. The final section discusses business, industry, and community resources, and emphasizes a team approach to guidance programming. Suggestions for maintaining a resource file along with appropriate areas for inclusion in the file are included. (JAC)
