Written Statements of Operational Definitions--Career Education.
Perryman, Bruce C.
Model IV, the rural-residential career education model, is committed to a goal of improving the growth, development, and employability of individuals in a six-state region, through an innovative, experimental system of career education. A residential community is one aspect of the innovative, experimental approach to be utilized in Model IV. Both the career education program and living in the created community are envisioned as providing the rural disadvantaged with learning experiences that have relevancy to improving their employability. Guiding the research and program development activities in Model IV is a working constitutive definition which views career education as the aggregate of processes by which an individual acquires and develops the goals (values), abilities (knowledge, attitudes, skills, and behaviors), and motivation to: (1) contribute to the growth of himself, his societies, and his life style, and (2) make prudent use of his individual, his societies' and his life-style systems' resources and energies. From this definition, it is easier to translate the constructs into operations than it is with other definitions of career education. (SB)
