Planning for Life Program Guidebook. Career Planning: Definition, Improvement Ideas and Self-Review Process.
Drier, Harry N.; And Others
This guidebook was developed for schools to use to improve their current career planning efforts by placing career planning in the context of a comprehensive guidance program. The guidebook defines activities that make up life planning and provides the framework for students to conduct self-reviews using these career planning principles. The guidebook is divided into three parts. Part 1 consists of an introductory chapter that focuses on the relationship of career planning to the total guidance program. Part 2 contains seven chapters that elaborate on the following essential components that are used to evaluate coalition-based career planning efforts: clarity of purpose, commitment, comprehensiveness, collaboration, coherence, coordination, and competency. Part 3 provides a self-evaluation process and form designed to help leaders direct a comprehensive self-study. An appendix links career development competencies by area and grade level. (KC)
