Vocational Guidance Programming for Disadvantaged Students. (An Objective-Based Program.)
Smith, Edward; And Others
The curriculum guide presents an objective-based vocational guidance program for disadvantaged students, K-12, offering local school districts in Pennsylvania a guidance model that may be modified to individual school settings in response to local and individual needs. Explicit, sequential learning modules are presented for grade level groupings and include a wide range of activities for various sub-groups of students in the following broad areas: self, education, careers, decision-making, and economics. Each area contains 4-12 units within each of the categories: vocabulary, knowledge, attitudes, and skills. Individual units contain a unit goal, developmental objectives, and activities, behavioral evaluations, preparations, and resources for each objective. The developmental sequence followed by the guide focuses on: developing insights about self and environments (K-3); developing awareness, with emphasis upon the effect of specific psychological factors (4-6); examining social and academic exploration and decision-making (7-9); dealing with specifics in terms of interests, abilities, and values and linking school and the student's immediate future (10-12). Suggested basic strategy for using the guide includes introducing concepts and activities at the point judged appropriate for student sub-groups based upon sample needs data, and then, at a later level, repeating similar experiences of emphasis and refinement.
