It's Working. . .Collaboration in Career Education.
Office of Career Education (DHEW/OE), Washington, DC.
Designed for the collaboration between educators and community persons, this book contains thirty-eight staff training and thirty-four student career education activities. Following a table of contents that contains annotated descriptions of the activities, a two-page description of each activity is provided. Each description includes an activity overview, suggestions for using it, materials needed, evaluation data on its effectiveness, and an estimate of the cost involved. Examples of the training activities include these: educators and community persons jointly explore definitions of career education to determine the elements needed in their own definition of the term; educators and non-educators change places for a day to gain a better understanding of each other's work; and teachers identify ways to use community resources and design action plans for use in the classroom. Student activity examples include the following: using "yes" or "no" questions, elementary students try to guess the occupation of a "mystery" guest worker; through mock job interviews conducted by community persons, sixth grade students consider the importance of basic skills and those things which make a person employable; and with the aid of a resource person, students set up a mini-business to practice their skills and learn about careers.
