Career Education Management Activity Guide.
This booklet, written by practitioners in the field, is designed to be a practical "how-to" guide to help teachers and administrators to set up a K-12 career education program. The first section of the guide presents a rationale for career education, and general information on setting up a local plan for comprehensive career education. The second section of the manual presents career education program activities for administrators, staff, and students. Activities proposed for administrators include a needs assessment, a career education plan, community action councils, a public relations program, and advice on working with Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) agencies. Staff activities suggested for developing and conducting a career education program include an inservice teacher education program, career education planning matrix, career resource centers, using video in career education, using media centers, using labor market information, and the Career Information Delivery System (CIDS) as a counselor/teacher resource. Activities which can be conducted for and by students are a career fair, a career awareness fair, mini-workshops, job shadowing, community-based learning, resource site development for community-based learning, independent study program, and a job placement program. For each activity, grade levels, objectives, information on how to conduct the activity, needed forms, and the name and address of a contact person is provided. All the activities were developed by career education teachers and administrators in Maine. (KC)
