Resources for Comprehensive Guidance & Counselling Programs. An Annotated List for Counsellors, Teachers, Administrators.
Schlosser, Grace A.
With the growing popularity of comprehensive guidance and counseling programs in the schools, school personnel need model programs to guide them. An annotated list of suggested resources, designed to assist schools in the selection of materials to support comprehensive counseling and guidance programs, is provided here. All of the materials have been carefully reviewed and endorsed by counselors. For each listing, three icons are used to represent the format, area of counseling, and grade level. When the resource consists of print material only, the book icon is used. A video icon indicates video resources and a kit icon is used when more than one type of material is used. Materials that cover career resources include information about course requirements, post-secondary institutions, career path planning, and job hunting. Educational resources provide information about student placement, promotion or achievement, learning strategies, and study and test-taking skills. Personal and social development resources deal with self-esteem, social skills, relationships, conflict resolution, valuing diversity, personal loss, or other problems. Of the 148 annotations provided, 14 are series with several separate titles, 47 are kits, 28 are resources that address career development, 21 look at educational development, and 97 focus on personal/social development. A title index serves as a finding aid. (RJM)
