Comprehensive Career Guidance. Methods Guide. K-6 Career.
Moore, Earl J.; And Others
This methods guide is intended to assist elementary school guidance workers in implementing a comprehensive career guidance program. Three major areas are considered. First, the life career development perspective is examined as a framework for organizing guidance objectives and practices so that there is a developmental, integrative conceptualization. Also included are descriptions of the following processes which can be utilized in reaching some of these guidance objectives: teacher developed activities, media packages, and experiential career education (Career Education); models and methods. moral reasoning, and expanding experiences (Values Education); media programs and group processes (Human Relations Education). In the second section, the psychological education movement is surveyed to provide some basic principles for new and intensive personal development goals. Four facets of psychological education are examined: communications training; understanding behavior; behavior change; and achievement motivation and responsible assertiveness. Finally, in section three, program components are presented to aid in establishing comprehensive career guidance within the mainstream of the elementary school curriculum. Included is a list of goals and developmental objectives organized by grade level (K-6) under the following domains: interpersonal effectiveness; work and life skills; and life career planning. (This comprehensive career guidance model was developed by the Georgia Comprehensive Career Guidance Project. (See CE 018 130 for a final report of this project.) (BM)
