Lang, Sheri K.
This final report describes a project that identified the core components of a model program for the delivery of career guidance and counseling to all students at grades 7-12 and then developed and implemented the program. Project activities included selection and use of an advisory committee, provision of inservice training, program development, and development and validation of guidelines for the model program. Appended to the brief report is the project's implementation and resource manual entitled "A Texas Guide to Career Development Guidance Programs." The manual, which comprises most of this document, is designed to assist local district and campus personnel in developing, improving, or expanding a career development program that is developmental by design and includes sequential activities with identified resources and a full range of program activities. The manual is organized in four sections. The introduction provides definitions and program purpose, rationale, philosophy. The program model describes program content, presents a detailed listing of student competencies with performance indicators, and discusses program structure and processes. The implementation guide is a planning tool that provides the details necessary for local district/school planning procedure to begin a program of career development guidance. The appendix has two parts: a set of planning procedural charts and information and a resource listing. (YLB)
