Vocational Guidance/Counseling Teacher Education in Northeast Texas. Final Report.
McLeod, Pat N.
A project provided technical assistance to approximately 200 vocational guidance/counseling program personnel in the Northeast Texas Area. A project advisory committee provided input for program planning, program improvement, and program evaluation. The project provided instruction in the courses required for certification in vocational guidance/counseling programs by the Texas Education Agency. Courses were offered on the following: planning and organizing programs of vocational guidance; occupational vocational education information; vocational student identification, placement, and follow-up; history and principles of vocational education; methods of media for teaching vocational subjects; organization and management of vocational-technical laboratory and shop programs; and practicum in vocational counseling. Other activities were as follows: completion of transcript analysis and deficiency plans for vocational guidance/counseling program personnel; recommendation of personnel seeking certification; and provision of instruction and handout material to vocational guidance/counseling program personnel to assist them in meeting needs of special needs students. As result of the project, vocational guidance/counseling personnel who completed the required courses gained an increased awareness and understanding of competencies necessary to plan and implement a quality program. (Appendixes include a sample course evaluation form, student comments, and descriptions of required courses.) (YLB)
