Career Activities Report. A Career Unit to Help Junior High or Senior High Students Think about Their High School Courses.
This program was written as a response to a need expressed by counselors and teachers for increased career awareness on the part of students who enter high schools and to provide a vehicle to link existing junior and senior high school programs. The program is designed to expose students to the characteristics of a variety of jobs; to examine the relationship between education and careers; to integrate these job characteristics with students' interests and aptitudes; and to share information regarding students' interests with the high school career counselor. The program is activity-oriented, requiring direct student involvement. There are seven activities in the program, six of which may be completed in as little as 15 minutes. Each activity plan contains the purpose, materials, time, and procedure for carrying it out. Materials suitable for duplication for student use are included in the activity plans. Topics covered in the seven activities are the following: learning about jobs; recognizing job characteristics; identification of personal experience, interest, and ability; relationship of personal skills and jobs; discovering the career path; career activities summary; and career guidance technician visit.
