Guidelines for the Operation, Demonstration, Evaluation and Diffusion of a Model for a Comprehensive Career Education Program in North Carolina, K-14.
Caldwell County Public Schools, Lenoir, NC.
These guidelines for developing a model for an integrated comprehensive career education program in North Carolina at the elementary and secondary levels include a mission statement, a career education rationale, a wide range of educational objectives, and key considerations for statewide implementation of the career education concept. An advisory committee of leaders from business and industry, the professions, parents, and teachers will provide feedback from the home and community and will help coordinate community resource persons and activities. A multimedia approach will involve students in "real-life" activities that focus on self-understanding, career awareness, and the development of positive attitudes. Special programs for the disadvantaged, cooperative programs, and evening high school pilot programs for students with special needs will be provided at the secondary level. A curriculum planning program, articulation planning, and a career choice guidance program will provide information for target school personnel. Long-range diffusion activities will be carried out by city and county administrative and supervisory personnel. Included in the guide are suggested exploratory learning activities, teaching procedures, and resource lists. (AG)
