The World of Working and Learning.
Bush, Donald O.; And Others
This position paper presents guidelines for an approach to career planning which integrates educational experiences with the world of work and job requirements, based on models developed in 1968 for the purpose of planning the "Image of the World of Work" program. It provides the rationale and the application of the models for general work-production and presents a guide for planning, work process, and evaluation. The three components of the occupational education program are: (1) "The Image of the World of Work," designed to help teachers emphasize work-relevant attitudes and occupational information throughout a student's total school experience, (2) The Occupational Clusters Curriculum, designed to create and test a scheme for the development of occupational education curriculums based on a career cluster concept at secondary school level, and (3) Cooperative Career Planning, a concept which stresses coordination of all relevant community resources so that all individuals might have the opportunity for job entry, continuous education, and upward occupational mobility. Related documents concerning these components are VT 009 939, VT 009 986, and VT 009 985, and VT 009 922. (CH)
