Needed Concepts in Elementary Guidance.
Warner, Tom, Ed.
School administrators and developmental guidance is the topic of the first speech. Developmental guidance, concerned with personalizing the educational experience, should be available to each child to gain self-understanding. Major responsibilities of the elementary guidance department are pupil appraisal, consultation, and developmental counseling. The administrator- his interests, his values, and his support- is crucial to the success of the program. Opening new vistas to children through career exploration is the subject of the second speech. Nine reasons are given which deal with the child's perception of himself, the world of work, and the future. Nine points are then made pertaining to how this exploration should be conducted. It should be active, relevant, exploratory, and non-graded. Career exploration should use available role models, starting with parents and moving outward to the larger society, with a minimum of amassing and digesting occupational information. (KP)
