Martin, Ann M.
The central purpose of the project's research efforts is its concentration on: (1) the placing of career development of noncollege bound in a learning theory frameowrk, (2) how to communicate with and motivate the noncollege bound, and (3) the development of materials and techniques designed to provide the kind of stimulus that will permit an increase in the motivational levels of students and create conditions for the learning of those behaviors important to career planning and choice. A behavioral model on which to base guidance materials was developed by the project. This model includes three components that ought to be considered in conjunction with one another and are dependent upon one another namely, an informational component, a behavioral component, and a media component. These components allow a broad base for determining what career information is to be communicated and how it is to be communicated for a given guidance objective. Guidance curriculum units consisting of sample film modules and slide tapes for grades 8 through 12 were developed for use with noncollege disadvantaged youth. Audio-visual and other ancillary materials are in the planning and development stages. (CH)
