Instructing Students in Developing, Planning and Managing Their Careers. Project Final Report, September 1980-April 1981.
Middlesex County Vocational and Technical High Schools, New Brunswick, NJ.
An Illinois project identified employer perceptions of vocational education graduates' job holding and success problems and needs and prepared instructional units to remediate these problems. An employer job survey was disseminated to businesses and industries who rated young adults entering the job market on non-skill related job performance behaviors. A task force then selected, taught, rewrote, field-tested, and assessed learning modules to reinforce positive work values and behaviors. The materials used by the task force were critiqued and then adapted, adopted, or discarded. (Appendixes include criteria for evaluating modules, module evaluation form, and survey.) Following the project narrative, these modules are provided: The Value of Organizations, Forecasting the Future of Work, Motives and Interpersonal Relations, Personal Factors Affecting Communication, Self Concept, Motivation: Fulfilling Personal Needs, Tuning in to Creativity, What is Problem Solving?, The Meaning of Authority and Responsibility, Leadership Skills, What is Conflict?, and Life in a Changing World. Each module is preceded by one or more evaluations and follows this format: objective, survival skills emphasized, importance, materials and equipment, activity, followup, student worksheet(s), and transparencies.
