VIEW Handbook: Vital Information for Education and Work. Applications for the Local School.
Marshall, John L.
VIEW (Vital Information for Education and Work) is essentially an information-gathering, storing, and dissemination system which uses microfiche application for information retrieval. It provides a means for giving current occupational information at a local level. The State of Michigan has made the VIEW project available to every junior and senior high school in the State with the participating schools responsible for providing their own microfilm readers and an implementor. The basic services provided by the State include two VIEW microfiche decks, an orientation filmstrip, newsletters, an inservice training session, and the VIEW handbook. The handbook contains samples of the collection's occupational information materials; self-exploration, career planning, career exploration, and decision-making worksheets for use by counselors with students; and supportive classroom worksheets for use by teachers. Preference tests and occupational fact-finding exercises comprise most of the counselor's materials, while games such as scrambled words, 20 questions, and crosswords are representative of the collection of teacher's materials. The VIEW indexes, however, comprise the largest part of the handbook (66 pages). These indexes are alphabetical listings of job titles on which information is contained in the VIEW collection.
