Make Your Choice: A Careers Simulation.
Fletcher, Anne
This simulation is designed for use of guidance teachers as part of a Careers Education program. Although basically dealing with a careers situation, other aspects of guidance emerge--confidentiality, parental problems, writing of references. It is interesting to consider these aspects from the pupils' point of view. The simulation can be used with pupils of different ranges of ability. The pace of working and the discussion level will, of course, vary. Used for one period per week this exercise could occupy one term of a third or fourth year guidance social education program. "Make Your Choice," revolves around four young people who apply for a post in an outdoor center. In due course they are interviewed by a panel--preferably three willing members of staff. The whole group participate throughout: in writing for application forms; in composing references from the scanty information; and in discussion. Ten discussion areas are indicated linked to the simulation material. Because of the open nature of the discussion no fixed structure is offered. (Author)
