Implementation of the K-7 Personal Planning Program.
A project was designed to help develop resources that support teachers in the implementation of a new K-7 Personal Planning curriculum. The project involved a partnership between the University of Victoria and the Victoria School District. The curriculum focused on students' personal development and on how their schooling and other activities related to their future plans. The curriculum was designed to help students become thoughtful, caring individuals who plan, review, make informed choices, and take responsibility for their career development. The planning process helped students develop personal, career, and educational goals. Preliminary results from administrators, parents, and 6th and 7th grade teachers surveyed indicated that the activities did not present any difficulties. Teachers were more comfortable with the Planning Process and Career Development areas than with the Personal Development area. Schools that tied significant outcomes to the Planning Process had the most success with program development and the participation of the staff and students. (Contains 10 references.) (JDM)
