All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

The major purpose of distributive education is to prepare the student for entry-level employment in distributive occupations. This preparation should help workers become successful and advance in their chosen field of distributive occupations.

There seems to be little doubt about the complexity of the parent-child relationship.

There is a great deal of research pointing to the problems, reasons for the problems, and the results of the problems in parent-child relationships. Many studies indicate that it is important for a child to ...

The Identification And Fostering Of Creative Ability, James W. Lundahl May 1971

The Identification And Fostering Of Creative Ability, James W. Lundahl

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Guilford's (1959) studies indicated that there are over 120 different factors of intelligence and that just a few of these factors are measured by the available intelligence tests. To do well on the typical intelligence test, the subject must be able to recall and recognize, perhaps even use prior learning to solve problems; he need not necessarily be able to invent, innovate, or create new approaches and ideas to the problems society faces.

This report will identify other factors that are indicative of creative ability and then give ways that this creative ability can be fostered and developed.

It is as a result of some frustrating, yet rewarding, years of classroom teaching experience in trying to plan and provide for experiences that would most satisfactorily meet the needs--sometimes undefined, sometimes vague, always unique--of individual students that the writer has become interested in what supportive services a counselor ...
