Resource Guide for Career Counseling Spanish-Speaking & Chicano Students.
Douglas, Denise; And Others
This resource guide provides help for the counselor attempting to give career advice to Spanish-speaking and Chicano students in high schools and community colleges. The guide is presented in nine sections. The first section provides an overview and general information about Hispanics, along with a review of the literature and an annotated bibliography. Sections 2-4 concern student assessment, language program placement, and affective considerations (such as self-image and decision making) of the student. Section 5 concentrates on techniques for retaining students in school and counseling those who are leaving school. Section 6 describes the education-work relationship and suggests such strategies as cooperative work experience programs, vocational programs, and career guidance. In section 7, job search and interview techniques to be taught to students are presented. Section 8 is an annotated bibliography of Spanish language materials for students; while section 9 suggests additional program development resources, including vocational education law as it applies to minorities, student recruitment strategies, and evaluation of counseling programs.
