Cooperative State Implementation Workshops for Curriculum-Involved Career Development Guidance, Counseling and Placement Project. Final Report.
Gysbers, Norman C.
The major goal of the 3 1/2 year Federal project was to assist each State, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico to develop preliminary State-tailored, home-school-community models/guides for developing and implementing improved and extended career guidance, counseling, and placement programs in local school districts. A national training conference for key State leaders was held in St. Louis, Missouri in January, 1972 to provide State teams with the knowledge and skills to develop a State guide. Each team received a "Program Content and Operations Manual" and a kit of exemplary materials and resources. The States received further consultative and technical assistance from the project staff, the national steering committee members, and national/State leaders in the field, as well as limited financial assistance. "Elements of an Illustrative Guide for Career Guidance, Counseling, and Placement" was prepared by the project staff in 1974. The project was successful in meeting its goals as 44 States developed new guides and/or models or modified and extended previous efforts. Two-thirds of the document consists of appendixes of selected project newsletters, a list of exemplary materials distributed to the States, and selected letters concerning the project impact. (EA)
