High School Guidance Counselors' Correspondence Course Manual: How to Use Correspondence Courses to Supplement High School Classes.
Wentworth, Robert A.
This manual describes 20 correspondence courses which supplement regular school offerings and are administered through high school guidance counselors. More than two-thirds of these carry high school credit. The courses are available not only to students needing to fulfill credit requirements, but also to those who: (1) need courses not taught in their own schools, (2) are homebound, (3) have schedule conflicts, or (4) have difficulties with particular learning situations at school. Currently 150 Massachusetts communities are participating in this state-wide program which permits a guidance counselor in each participating high school to serve as liaison between students and programs. Sample pages from each of the 20 correspondence course study guides are included. (CKJ)
