Guidance in the Elementary School. Volume 36. No. 7.
Kentucky State Dept. of Education, Frankfort. Div. of Guidance Services.
It is generally accepted that the elementary school should provide for the individual needs, according to abilities and interests of early and intermediate childhood. It is now recognized that from the time of birth, through elementary school, and until graduation from high school, children need some help in developing capacity for self direction and in maintaining satisfactory progress toward worthwhile goals. In this bulletin guidelines are suggested for the development of guidance in the elementary school in accordance with the goals of the elementary school. Included in the overview of elementary guidance are the purposes, philosophy and needs of elementary schools, as well as the major goals of guidance services at this level. In planning and organizing the program, the roles of school personnel in the elementary guidance program are discussed. Under basic services and activities, counseling is thoroughly discussed, as well as ethics, consultation, information services, and resources. Other areas included are: (1) educational development of the elementary school pupil, (2) career development, and (3) social-personal development. (Author/KJ)
