This report interprets information from the first phase of a Federally funded adult basic educational guidance and counseling project in Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. Findings and conclusions are presented as to the cultural, psychological, and other characteristics of students; problems encountered in designing guidance and counseling programs; definitions of activities and positions (including administrator, supervisor, counselor, and paraprofessional); guidance and counseling functions of teachers and other personnel; methods of program implementation and administration; educational, social, personal, vocational, and other content in each state program; and principles of guidance and counseling. A team approach to guidance and counseling is outlined. Evidence suggests that funding and teacher orientation are the main concerns of program leaders, and that adult basic education teachers must become familiar with the sociological, psychological, and physiological factors affecting their students. Also included are memorandums, flow charts, the work breakdown structure, attachments from state reports, and 15 tables and figures. (ly)
