The guidebook describes procedures for developing a secondary school mentorship program for career education of gifted students. Sample forms and records from a prototype designed by a graduate gifted education class are presented. An initial section presents answers to eight questions about the program that touch upon such aspects as program length, feedback, reassignments, and scheduling. Suggestions are outlined for determining student selection and responsibilities for program development are listed. A 25-week schedule is illustrated. Related activities of student, mentor, and teacher are listed for professional preparation, professional appearance and personal characteristics, performance skills, career assets and liabilities, and career impact. Suggestions for seminar topics are noted and the value of the student journal for examining facts and feelings is stressed. (CL)
