Career Education Practice: An Overview and Guide to Resources.
Henning, Patricia A.
Designed to stimulate school staff to consider a wide range of student learning activities as they identify ways to improve their local career education program, this resource booklet is divided into six sections which provide an overview of current career education practice (activities) in secondary schools. The first five sections correspond to the five goal categories which the learning activities serve: self awareness, career awareness, educational awareness, economic awareness, and career planning and decision making. Each section includes a brief discussion of the goal area and a table which provides a sampling of representative practices, materials, and learning activities for that goal area. Sample learning activities are then described in a one-page format which includes the name of the activity, a brief description of its purpose and process, and the approximate audience, methods employed, and reference to the sources of the activity. The sixth section contains (1) an annotated list of sources of information on career education activities (including those referenced in the one-page descriptions) and (2) a listing of national and local resource centers which can supply various kinds of knowledge about career education.
