Generalizations Related to Concepts Important for Youth Orientation to the World of Work.
Warren, Mary A.; And Others
A basic first step in building a curriculum contributing to the orientation of youth to world of work is identification of concepts important to that orientation. In this study, the generalizations within the concept framework were identified through a developmental process of analysis and synthesis, including a review of current literature, a review of the findings of the earlier concept conference, an evaluation conference, and a compilation of findings by project staff, and an individual and group study of materials by national, state, and local consultants, and by youth. The concept and generalization framework was divided into three areas: (1) personal influences which include human needs, values and individual personalities, (2) environmental influences which include technology, automation, economic framework and work opportunity, and (3) personal-environmental influences which include vocational plans and work attitudes. Through use of this framework, equality of opportunity for students of varying abilities and socioeconomic levels is possible. (CH)
