Field Tested Vocational Decision Making Programs. A Guidebook for Counselors and Vocational Education Teachers.
Yost, Elizabeth B., Ed.
This document contains the best 11 field tested vocational decisionmaking programs (and their attendant evaluations) developed during the Vocational Decision Making Workshop, held in Arizona during the 1975-76 academic year. (Eighteen high school counselors and vocational education teachers participated in the workshop, designed to help them learn effective methods of assisting students to make and to implement informed and appropriate vocational decisions. Each participant designed a group vocational decisionmaking program based on the generic program (which is outlined and discussed in this document) presented in the workshop, but adapted it to the unique student population of his or her high school.) The 11 programs are divided into two sections: Counseling Programs, which were conducted in classroom settings as part of the regular curriculum, and Vocational Education Programs, which were conducted outside the classroom. The programs cover introducing career choice to eighth grade students, increasing self-awareness and communication skills, introducing students and parents to vocational decisionmaking, field testing of a career decisionmaking design for high school students, expanding career awareness for home economics students, career and life planning for potential dropouts, career awareness for students interested in marketing, career opportunities through education and experience, career planning workshop in the photographic arts, and increasing career awareness in clerical fields for girls in a shorthand class.
