New Jersey Career Guidance Guide: Report of New Jersey Career Guidance Conferences, 1973-74.
Law, Gordon F., Jr., Ed.
The first section of the guide contains the text of two speeches dealing with the current challenges of career education and the school counselor, presented at the 1972 New Jersey Regional Career Education Conferences. The second and larger section contains a variety of materials resulting from a series of conferences in 1973 aimed at developing goals and objective statements for career guidance and constructing a framework for a career guidance model which would emphasize student needs assessment. The materials include program management charts, descriptions of workshops, and the step-by-step development of a local career education curriculum. Worksheets and lists of concepts and outcomes covering various phases of career education are included. A chapter discusses the improvement of guidance services, listing objectives, outcomes, and activities in column format. Another chapter presents an introductory discussion of the development of a pre-counseling survey instrument and a draft of the instrument itself, prepared by workshop participants. A 64-page appendix offers descriptions and reviews of 24 career education assessment instruments for grades K-12, many of which are examined in detail. (MDW)
