Educator's Handbook for Secondary Career Guidance Programs: New Hampshire Guidelines.
Gustafson, Richard A.; And Others
The handbook is designed to aid the educator-counselor in formulating and implementing a workable secondary school career guidance program. A brief introduction presents definitions, the philosphy of career development on which the program is based, and a glossary of terms. Information is organized into 10 sections. Needs assessment, the first section, explains the planning cycle, describes activities in the process, and contains a pool of items for constructing a needs assessment questionnaire. The second section, program organization and management, addresses the sequence of activities needed in organizing a career guidance effort. An extensive collection of student learning activities and other materials for use by teachers and counselors are contained in the third section. The tested activities were developed around the three major components of the New Hampshire conceptual model of career education: attitudes and values, decision making, and world of work. The remaining seven sections of the handbook detail the processes involved in incorporating career information resource centers, community resources, counseling services, placement services, program evaluation, and follow-up services into the program. Planning steps and models, sample materials, and reference lists and sources are included throughout these sections. (Author/MS)
