Elements of A Comprehensive Guidance System Integrated in the Instructional Process.
Jones, G. Brian; Nelson, Dennis E.
This study describes a current attempt to design a comprehensive guidance system which will be an integral part of a program of individualized education and which serves the needs of all students at each academic level. Preliminary investigation has led to tentative specification of 12 components comprising the guidance system, five involving indirect intervention on behalf of the students, and seven presenting guidance experiences directly through the instructional process. Basic objectives are to encourage problem solving behaviors among the students involved, and to create greater awareness of career information in order to enable students to make better decisions for their own futures. Programmatic research and development activities to assist individuals to acquire and perform behaviors which will result in their solving real-life problems wisely is also currently underway. The ultimate training program must specify behaviors included in solving real-life problems wisely, and reliable criterion measures for assessing students' abilities to perform these behaviors must be developed. Hopefully, findings from this research will point the way toward discovering a superior problem-solving training approach, including the cost in time and money for such a program in a school setting.
