Ideas that Work: A Compendium of Guidance Program Practices K-12.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Pupil Services.
This book contains the results of the Guidance Materials Acquisition Project, initiated by the New York State Education Department in 1983. The purpose of the project was to identify and compile kindergarten through grade 12 guidance materials and practices developed by local school districts and boards of cooperative education services. An introduction to the use of the publication includes an explanation of the New York Commissioner of Education's coding system of public school guidance services by nine major categories. In part I, over 200 practices and ideas that currently work are described briefly; they are arranged by school district under the code's nine category headings: counseling approaches, guidance programs, inservice programs, instruction in career planning, parent meetings and workshops, forms and functions, printed materials and resources, special activities and programs, and program planning and scheduling. Part II, the largest portion of the book, is presented in the five appendices. Appendix A contains supplemental materials described in part I, while Appendix B lists the materials by school district. Appendix C is a bibliography of materials available from the New York State Education Department. Appendix D is a summary of the current regulation and contrasts the old and revised regulation. Appendix E is a self-assessment checklist to help schools determine their compliance status. The book concludes with a subject index that refers the reader to the numbered entries in part I. (BL)
