Students' Cognition of the Importance of the Content of Guidance Curriculum.
Chen, Yu-Lan
This paper describes research designed to provide data to help answer three questions regarding students' cognition of the importance of classroom guidance activities. The questions are: (1) What rank would students rate the importance of classroom guidance activities among 21 kinds of subjects in secondary school? (2) What is the most important question and what is the least important question in student's choice of 33 kinds of guidance contents, and what are the reasons? (3) Will gender and personality have interactive influence on the scores of the cognition of importance? The results of this study found that there are 21 class subjects in junior high schools in Taiwan and the importance of Classroom Guidance Activities ranked 19th, showing that these activities are unimportant from the viewpoint of students. But when students were asked to rate the degree of importance of the 33 contents of guidance curriculum separately, the average point of rank was between "very important" and "important". The three most important contents that students rated were to learn the art of building human relationships, to learn how to escape from danger and protect oneself from harm, and to know the relations between career decisions and life. It also found that female students attached more importance to the contents of guidance curriculum than male students. (Contains an appendix and 5 data tables.) (JDM)
