Student Selected Learning Activities
1. Investigate a topic of interest to you and related to career interventions, career counseling or career development or life and career planning and report your results. The topic selected should allow you to expand your learning beyond that provided by the EDHS 722 survey course format.
The goal, the method, the learning outcome and your assessment of the value of the exercise should be summarized in a paper of five or fewer pages of content. Although the report should be in the format described
in the Fifth Edition of Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2001) this is not a course paper. It could be based on field research, library research and reading, interviews, observations; Internet based instruction or any method that provides the learning you need.
The learning objective should be clearly stated and the importance of the information to your development as a professional counselor should be clear. The goal is for spend the time you would normally spend on a course paper on this self directed learning. 10 Points
2. Career Genogram Complete a genogram representing his or her family history and patterns of careers, education, values, and other related themes. A two-page typed paper (much like a journal entry) indicating what the process was like and the pluses and minuses as using career genograms as career assessments must accompany the assignment. Students may incorporate information gleaned from this assignment toward their Autobiography though this must be turned in as a separate assignment. Information prepared by Amanda Flora, the teaching intern for this course during Spring 2007, is posted on the course Resources and Slides Toolkit site. 10 Points
