Schulz, William; And Others
Intended for counselors, teachers, administrators, and students, this resource book contains 40 activities to prepare students in grades 7-12 to make the transition from school to work. (With two exceptions, activities can be completed without additional career materials.) Introductory materials include a rationale for career development education, goals and objectives for career development, and use of the guide by the four target groups. The book is divided into four units, each containing five modules. Units 1 and 2 are intended for grades 7-9, units 3 and 4 for grades 10-12. Each module consists of two activities. Unit titles and topics are (1) Career Planning and Preparation (decision making, establishing goals, course selection, job search, success on the job), (2) Knowledge of the World of Work (relationships between jobs, job discrimination, work motivations and values, interests, skills), (3) Preparing for a Career (career decision making, self-assessment, lifestyle, job application, job search strategies), and (4) Work and Working (job market exploration, work experience, career information, employability, work habits). Each module begins with notes for the leader. Information provided for each activity includes performance objective, suggested grade level, time required, preparation, procedure, notes, and materials and forms.
