Occupational Information as an Integral Strand in the PLAN Social Studies Curriculum.
Hamilton, Jack A.; Webster, William J.
Project PLAN, a system of individualized education designed to adapt the curriculum to the specific needs of each student, has as one of its principal objectives the assistance of young people in exploring and reaching tentative decisions about long range occupational goals. PLAN charges each student with the responsibility for formulating his personal goals, for making decisions and plans with respect to his educational development, and for the management of his learning in such a manner that his goals will be achieved. Through the economics strand in the social studies curriculum, PLAN provides students with a broad program of occupational education. The program consists of approximately 30 individualized learning units distributed across all levels of instruction. The primary level is the introduction to work, the intermediate covers practice in decision making, the secondary level concentrates on exploration and making specific post high school plans. (KJ)
