Comprehensive Career Guidance. Parent Education and Consultation. Staff Development K-6.
Straub, Vicki W.; Moore, Earl J.
One of six staff development training manuals for career guidance infusion in the elementary school curriculum (K-6), this manual focuses on parent education and consultation. It is divided into the following seven major sections: (1) a list of the major goals and activities covered in the manual; (2) an overview chart displaying the goals, concepts, time, process, and instructional mode of each activity; (3) specific directions for each activity, including objectives, preparation requirements, and materials/equipment requirements; (4) leader's summaries presenting the background information needed to lead the activities; (5) participant worksheets and handouts; (6) participant summaries; and (7) a leader skills game board and cards. (See CE 018 130 for the project final report.) The three major goals covered by this manual are to understand the general purposes, physical aspects, and scope of parent education groups and resources; to understand the parent education program Systematic Training in Effective Parenting (STEP) and how to begin it; and to learn leadership techniques for facilitating the STEP program with parents (a leadership skills game is appended). Five other training manuals (CE 018 139-140 and CE 018 142-144) and a career guidance methods guide for grades K-6 (CE 018 137) are available. (BM)
