Institute for Guidance, Counseling, Administrative, Supervisory and Teaching Personnel in Vocational Programs for Chicano Students at the Secondary or Post-Secondary School Level. Final Report.
Guerrero, Adalberto; Arellano, Albert
The goal of the project was to provide educational and guidance personnel in vocational and technical fields with new perspectives relating to teaching and counseling Mexican-American students. A two-week institute was held in June, 1973 at the University of Arizona for counselors, administrators, teachers, and student representatives of high schools with large minority populations in Arizona, New Mexico, and California. Objectives of the institute related to providing career information and increasing awareness of cultural differences. Based on participant assessment of the problems facing the Mexican-American students in their relationship with counselors and teachers, a pilot program to increase the relevancy of the school program was developed. Also developed were programs for a bilingual resource center and a program to improve communication between teachers and minority students--project "RAP." The report of the project describes the institute, presents the programs developed, and includes the program schedule and participant lists. The evaluation instrument is also included with tabulated results and comments from participating groups--administrators, students, counselors, and teachers. (NJ)
