An Occupational Clustering System and Curriculum Implications for the Comprehensive Career Education Model.
Taylor, John E.; And Others
The design of a proposed occupational clustering system for the Comprehensive Career Education Model (CCEM) was to meet three general criteria: (1) encompass most existing jobs, (2) translate into an entire K-12 curriculum, and (3) show clear advantages over other systems. However, upon examination of existing clustering systems for relevance and possible adaptation, no one system met all the criteria. Therefore, a new clustering system was devised by synthesizing useful features of existing systems. The proposed system has two crucial dimensions--one stressing functions and contents of occupations, the other emphasizing status or levels of occupations. The proposed clustering system was planned to fulfill three instructional functions: (1) inform students about the world of work, (2) assist students in choosing a suitable career, and (3) provide models to shape instructional objectives and learning experiences.
