The Guidance Assistant Project - Systematic Training.
Cavins, David A.
With the awarding of federal funds to the Deerfield, Illinois Elementary School District, a program was developed for training individuals to assist members of the pupil personnel team. Those selected for training had baccalaureate degrees, were eligible for provisional teacher certification, and took three basic guidance courses in conjunction with on-the-job training and practice. The material presented in this handbook focused on procedures used to prepare trainees for tasks previously identified as appropriate for support personnel. The paper emphasizes the need for systematically organizing the learning experiences of the trainees and delineates five "sub-systems" from which instructional units can be devised: (1) orientation and readiness; (2) standardized testing program; (3) referral and child study; (4) small group and classroom guidance; and (5) cooperative activities with counselors. All five sub-systems are explained in terms of their purpose, training procedures, behavioral objectives and performance expectations. The paper concludes that local training programs could help alleviate existing problems of personnel shortages. The research reported herein was funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (TL)
