Erpenbach, William; And Others
This module is intended to help guidance personnel in a variety of educational and agency settings understand and use the provisions of existing state and Federal legislation, regulation, and other public policy in strengthening their role and function, and to influence pending legislation. The module is one of a series of competency-based guidance program training packages focusing upon specific professional and paraprofessional competencies of guidance personnel. Patterned after the Performance Based Teacher Education Modules developed at the National Center for Research in Vocational Education, the modules teach competencies for planning, supporting, implementing, operating, and evaluating guidance programs. The module follows a standard format that includes the following components: (1) an introduction that gives the user an overview of the purposes and content of the module; (2) a section that provides information about the module goal and a list of the competencies covered in the module; (3) a reading containing information on each of the competencies; (4) learning experiences consisting of an individual activity, individual feedback, and a group activity; (5) evaluation techniques that can be used to measure what workshop participants need prior to training and what they have accomplished through training; and (6) an annotated list of resources. Topics include analyzing laws and regulations, utilizing available legislation, preparing and/or influencing legislation, and other lobbying activities. Appendixes contain descriptions and an analysis matrix of selected Federal laws; a case study of guidance-related legislation; a legislative/political action performance contract; an exercise on bill writing; counseling and guidance program components; and samples of Federal laws, rules and regulations, hearing record, and application for assistance.
