Elementary School Guidance Work Conference. Conference Report.
Herr, Edwin L.; Hershberger, James K.
In October, 1967, 100 invited participants representing all aspects of guidance, education, school administration, counselor education, psychology, and interested government agencies in Pennsylvania met for three days to listen, think, discuss, and hopefully develop some recommendations for those who want a better program of elementary guidance. Presentations included in the monograph are as follows: "The Theoretical Foundations of Psychological Development in the Early School Years" by Dr. Jerome Kagan; "Cultural Influences on Learning and Coping Behavior" by Dr. Eleanor Leacock; "What the Counselor Should Know and Do About Testing in the Elementary School" by Dr. Warren Findley, and "Developmental Guidance: Theory and Procedures in the Elementary School" by Dr. Don Dinkmeyer. Work groups examined the characteristics of elementary school children as related to guidance programs, and recommended those steps which might facilitate and implement such programs to serve the needs of all children throughout Pennsylvania. Following the presentation of each of the four major speakers, time was allotted to provide for discussion by each work group of the presentation as it applied to their particular topic. The groups recommended steps which should be accomplished to insure a quality school guidance program. (Author/CJ)
