A Handbook for Career Guidance Counselors.
Illinois Univ., Urbana. Dept. of Vocational and Technical Education.
Designed for the use of high school, area vocational center, and community college counselor-coordinators in career education, the handbook covers a variety of career-relevant activities, materials, and resources. Site visits to outstanding programs in career education in Illinois formed the basis for selection of contents. Beginning with sample correspondence relating to the appointment of a coordinator, the handbook is divided into sections, each focusing on a program objective and a series of obligations or challenges for the career counselor. The sections are: informing the school and community about career guidance; identifying and choosing programs and courses; determining experiences which contribute to the development of career planning skills; helping students seeking employment and/or further education; and collecting and using followup evidence. Detailed suggestions for activities and resources and sample instructional materials comprise the bulk of each section and are listed by subject area in an appendix. There are also references and a glossary. (MDW)
