Mississippi Research and Curriculum Unit for Vocational and Technical Education, State College.
Developed by curriculum coordinating unit staff, this teacher's handbook was prepared for use in planning and implementing a course in career orientation. Material for the course is divided into eight instructional units which correspond to Roe's eight categories, namely: (1) Service, (2) Business Contact, (3) Organization, (4) Technology, (5) Outdoor, (6) Science, (7) General Culture, and (8) Arts and Entertainment. The course is recommended for the ninth grade level with an enrollment of from 10 to 20 students per class. The instructional procedure includes an overview phase, a transition phase, an exploration phase, and a projection phase. This final phase is expected to develop the student's ability to project an educational program designed to yield successful occupational entry and advancement. Also included in this handbook is information on testing, student objectives, teacher objectives, and suggested activities. (Author/JS)
