A Guide to Curriculum Development in Career Education.
Dulburg, Saul; Clark, Judith
This guide has been developed to assist educators to write or revise a comprehensive career education curriculum that will meet the needs of local school districts in Connecticut. Following the introductory chapter, chapter 2 provides a brief perspective on the growth and current status of career education in the nation and in Connecticut, as well as providing a working definition of career education. Chapter 3 relates to the curriculum development process, identifying special considerations in the development of a local comprehensive career education curriculum guide. In chapter 4, specific guidelines for developing the teaching/learning process in career education are offered. The guide suggests that a local K-12 curriculum present the content of career education in five sequential stages, and then provides some examples of career education learner outcomes, performance objectives, and samples of teaching strategies for each of the five developmental stages. Chapter 5 addresses the evaluation process in career education, suggesting guidelines for development of evaluation procedures as an integral part of the career education curriculum. Chapter 6 deals with the resources and facilities that may be used in the development and implementation of a local curriculum in career education, while some final notes are offered in chapter 7. Appendixes to the guide contain statewide goals for education, Connecticut laws dealing with career education, a list of regional educational service centers, and a list of career education evaluation resources. A glossary and a bibliography are also provided. (KC)
