Maddy-Bernstein, Carolyn; Cunanan, Esmeralda S.
This monograph synthesizes information gathered during pilot tests and presents material relevant to developing and implementing a comprehensive career development program. It provides valuable information for those wishing to improve their career guidance and counseling programs. Discussed in chapter 1 are the following topics: the role of continuous and sequential career awareness, exploration, and placement/follow-through adjustment activities in development of students' career identities; school counselors' role in helping students develop career identities and the need to free counselors from administrative support duties; and challenges posed by increasingly diverse student populations. Chapter 2 outlines a framework using clusters of components pertaining to the following aspects of program delivery/support to identify exemplary guidance programs serving diverse populations: delivery of career guidance programs, collaboration and articulation efforts, and institutional leadership and support given to the career guidance and counseling program. Described in chapter 3 are efforts at the following schools to build comprehensive, integrated career guidance and counseling programs: Springdale High School in Springdale, Arkansas; Metro Tech, a vocational school in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; and Bryan High School in Omaha, Nebraska. Chapter 4 discusses the national Career Development Guidelines, which served as a catalyst for improving career guidance programs at the three schools. Chapters 1 and 2 contain a total of 23 references. Appended is a schematic depicting a school-to-work model for tech prep. (MN)
