Using a Timetable in Educational Guidance.
Recent studies of secondary education have underlined the need for more and better guidance services. Guidance programs are rapidly growing and changing as are the conditions and circumstances confronting high school graduates. An inclusive educational guidance program which is attainable by every school system regardless of its budget or staff is the Guidance Timetable approach. This approach is based on the belief that individual teachers and administrators gain confidence when they can quickly examine an overall guidance plan and see where they fit in. A timetable is so basic to a guidance program that everyone concerned (pupils, parents, and teaching staff) must know its contents. The timetable is a comprehensive and flexible plan which assures an orderly and systematic effort. This 1961 bulletin discusses the Guidance Timetable approach focusing on activities essential for grades 7-12. The discussion and brief description are divided into two sections: (1) Sequential Activities (on a grade-level basis) and (2) Continuous Activities. Special emphasis is on college preparation, but the contents and procedures suggested are directed to all students. A bibliography of guidance books and pamphlets is also included. (NQ)
