The Guidance Program in the PLAN System of Individualized Education.
Dunn, James A.
PLAN (A Program for Learning in Accordance with Needs) is the outgrowth of a followup study, Project TALENT, on the occupational aspirations of over 400,000 high school students. As the second of three major theoretical components in that comprehensive developmental individualized education program, this occupational guidance system is intended for integration into the regular academic program. To pursue relevance to student needs, to accommodate parental interests in their children, and to delimit the instructional resources available in PLAN, seven career education and guidance subcomponents were created, and computer-oriented individualized programs of study were generated. These seven programs are: (1) curriculum planning and coordination, (2) orientation and study skills, (3) career and vocational information, (4) student goal formulation, (5) individual planning, (6) student assessment and progress monitoring, and (7) military, college, and post-secondary counseling. A wide range of visual aids and resource materials are provided, including a glossary of key concepts in PLAN and sample program materials. (AG)
