Career Development Components in Vocational Education: A Diagrammatic Model K-12.
Olson, LeVene A.
Information for the model contained in this paper was obtained through contacts and personal association with many educators and practitioners whose concern has been the need to provide information and experience to students about occupational and educational alternatives. Planned educational experiences that relate to occupations and that are provided by elementary and secondary teachers constitute the components of the career development education described in this document. These experiences include decision-making experiences, industrial visits, counseling, career games, simulations, and periodic career conferences. Components of the model are: (1) Career Awareness (for Grades K-6), (2) Career Orientations (for Grades 7 and 8), (3) Career Explorations (for Grades 9 and 10), and (4) Career Preparatory (for Grades 11 and 12). A bibliography categorized by service areas is included. (MU)
