State of Arizona Career Exploration Model.
Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
This career exploration model gives a framework for use by schools in planning, developing, and implementing a career exploration program for grades 7 and 8 within a complete career education program. The recommended plan for use of the two-phase model is to use phase 1 at the seventh-grade level and phase 2 at the eighth-grade level. The major emphasis of each of the three sequential program components--self awareness, career awareness, and observational experience--for each phase is described. A suggested curriculum guide format to use in implementing the program calls for dividing each program component into sessions, each session consisting of the following parts: overview, importance, career exploration skills emphasized, activities, evaluation, materials and equipment, and resources. Two sample curriculum guides are provided. Another section suggests the following strategies for infusing career exploration into the existing curriculum: career exploration club, interdisciplinary approach, career course, and instructional module. The model concludes with listings of learning outcomes for each of the three program components in phase 1 and phase 2. (YLB)
