Career Guidance--A New Direction for Bend Senior High School: Final Report.
Lamont, Ken; Cother, Bob
The report describes the development of an experimental career guidance and education program for grades 10-12 which focused on including a career decision making unit in the existing curriculum. The program goals were: to increase faculty members' ability to facilitate positive student self-concept development, to increase students' informational background in careers and to help them gain decision-making skills, to increase counselor effectiveness in career guidance and education, and to use the most successful aspects of similar Oregon high school career guidance programs. Three guidance counselors, the language skills staff (two teachers and one aide), a guidance committee, and the administrative staff worked with a target group of 80 academically disadvantaged sophomores in the language skills classes to test materials and techniques. The major outcomes of the project (staff development and the instructional program) are described. A sample of the materials used in the curriculum is presented. A proposal for the guidance awareness program for 1974-75 and an evaluation of the program by a vocational rehabilitation counselor are also included. Appended are: a 13-item bibliography, pre-project surveys of sophomores and seniors, and the post-project student survey (including questionnaires and results). (MS)
