K-12 Developmental Guidance & Counseling Curriculum. Volume II: Middle/Junior High 6-8.
Connecticut State Dept. of Education, Hartford.
This document is the second of three volumes in the kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) Developmental Guidance & Counseling Program. Volume II focuses on middle school and junior high school education, grades six through eight. The introduction defines the four major components of a comprehensive developmental guidance model: the guidance curriculum, individual planning, responsive services, and program management or system support. The next section focuses on implementation of a developmental guidance program using a 14-step plan. The third section presents a revised curriculum that identifies eight competency areas or strands and develops student outcomes or objectives that are desirable and developmentally appropriate for various grade levels. A narrative scope and sequence introduces the different strands, and a complete listing of all objectives by strand and grade illustrates the developmental nature of the objective sequencing. The eight strands are: (1) awareness of self and others; (2) interpersonal relations and socialization; (3) understanding community; (4) school environment; (5) school success skills; (6) career awareness and exploration; (7) career planning; and (8) career preparation. This section concludes by describing possible activities that will lead to measurable student outcomes for each objective. A needs assessment model, summary of implementation strategies, and a comparison of the Connecticut School Counselor Association and National Occupational Information Coordinating Committee models are appended. Contains an activities resource bibliography and a topical bibliography. (NB)
