Development and Evaluation of an Experimental Curriculum for the New Quincy (Mass.) Vocational-Technical School. Fourth Quarterly Technical Report, a Vocational Guidance Plan for Junior High School.
Morrison, Edward J.; Hudak, Vivian M.
Activity from January 1 through March 31, 1966 was centered on the derivation of topic objectives for each course of study and on the completion of junior high school guidance program plans. This report describes the procedures for developing the guidance program by describing the guidance program as it now exists in the Quincy Public Schools, defining specific objectives and requirements for a guidance program adequate to the new school program, defining a plan for meeting each program objective, developing a plan for training counselors and teachers, developing materials to support staff training and the guidance program, installing and trying out guidance programs, and evaluating the program. The guidance program has been organized into study units which the student will cover every year in the sequence listed (1) identifying student goals, (2) assessing student objectives, (3) identifying educational and vocational opportunities, (4) selecting a course of action, and (5) adjusting decisions. The plan calls for developing a counselor handbook specifying all counselor activities by grade and a student handbook or portfolio describing and scheduling all guidance activities. An appendix gives the general vocational objectives state in terms of student behavior. Other reports are available as VT 001 392-001 397, VT 004 848, and ED 013 318. (HC)
