Promising Guidance Practices in Texas, 1974-75.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Guidance Services.
In 1974, the Texas Education Agency Division of Guidance Services established as one of its objectives the identification of a cross section of promising guidance practices. The idea for such a project came from the fact that agency guidance consultants often discovered exemplary practices by accident. Sometimes these were small, innovative projects carried out by a zealous individual or a few staff members in one school, and sometimes they were systemwide programs. The Division of Guidance Services decided there should be a systematic attempt to find such practices and give them additional recognition. This publication is the result of that attempt. Its purpose is to highlight 30 selected examples of innovative approaches to guidance and to serve as an example to other educators who look for ways to increase their guidance services to students. Projects selected are categorized into six groups: Elementary Schools, Middle Schools, High Schools, All Levels, Schools Without Counselors, and Schools with Guidance Associates. The last section lists 69 additional schools with effective guidance practices. (NG)
