Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Center for Vocational Education.
Based on the career guidance needs of rural youth and the problems of rural educational institutions in meeting these needs, a systematic approach for delivering a comprehensive career guidance system to students in rural and small schools was researched and developed by consortium effort. The objectives were accomplished by completing the following tasks: organize human and material resources; conduct national literature search; prepare state-of-the-art paper; produce a handbook on career guidance resources for rural schools; prepare a conceptual model and program design; develop a comprehensive K-14 placement, follow-up, and follow-through model; produce a comprehensive content and procedural system for placement, follow-up, and follow-through; produce a comprehensive content and procedural system based upon the conceptual model; develop a competency-based inservice training program; conduct project steering and national advisory committee meetings; develop a product utilization plan; and prepare quarterly reports, recommendations for future development, and a final report for USOE. The materials developed were reviewed and revised accordingly. This report of the project's activities includes (1) discussion of the development and review of sixteen documents which paralleled the project's objectives (listed above) and which involve aspects of a comprehensive program of guidance; (2) suggestions made for future consortium efforts; summary of five limiting effects on rural guidance programs; and rationale statements which underlie the project materials; and recommendations for future research and development. Appendixes contain various listings, forms, abstracts, correspondence, and feedback related to the project's completion. (BM)
