A Curriculum Model for Facilitating Career Development.
Bailey, Larry J.
Many career education programs have been criticized because they concentrate on dispensing information instead of developing competencies. Part of this weakness can be traced to the absence of a rationale derived from the body of literature and research and supported by a knowledge of child growth and development. This project was designed to show how knowledge of career development theory and research could be applied to a functional and logically consistent curriculum framework. A suggested outline for career development in Grades 1-8 is presented, which includes: (1) Awareness State: Grades 1-3, (2) Accommodation State: Grades 4-6, and (3) Exploration State: Grades 7-8. Each individual is seen progressing through a number of vocational stages beginning with the formation stage and extending through the translation-implementation stage. (Author/GEB)
