An Active Self-Determination Technique: Involving Students in Effective Career Planning.
Denison, Grace L.
This paper discusses creating story boards to help students with disabilities to develop effective career plans. It describes storyboarding as a technique for project planning which requires active involvement of both hemispheres of the brain. A group of 6-8 people, including students, teachers, counselors, and vocational rehabilitation representatives, form a planning team which meets for a creative thinking session that permits the free flow of ideas from all members of the team. This session is followed by a critical thinking session in which the creative ideas are scrutinized closely for viability and are retained or rejected by the team. Ideas are displayed in clear visual form on a story board as the planning session progresses to enable participants to see interrelationships among the ideas, to rearrange the ideas for clarity, and to hitchhike on ideas already presented. Finally, action plans are developed. The paper begins by describing the components of the storyboarding system, the project team, and storyboarding supplies. The major types of story boards and basic steps in using them are then discussed. Examples of a planning board, an ideas board, a communication board, and an organizational board are attached.
