Career Development in the Elementary School: A Practical Schema.
Chipley, Donald R.; Wootton, Lutian R.
The purpose of this paper is to call attention to the need for offering a vital program of career development education during the formative years of schooling and to describe a practical schema for building such a program in elementary schools. Many elementary educators lack the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to make career education a concrete reality in local schools. To provide guidelines for educators in developing career education curriculums, a schema was devised and articulated by administrators and teachers who took part in two career development institutes sponsored by the University of Georgia during the summer of 1970. This schema arranged key questions, concepts, and procedures in a systematic framework for dissemination to elementary school faculties. The following seven major categories were proposed: (1) goals, (2) organizational elements, (3) student needs, (4) instructional units, (5) correlation patterns, (6) resource materials, and (7) evaluative criteria. As an instrument for involving local educators in an ongoing process of developing programs and units in career education, this proposed schema should guide them in constructing more relevant patterns of elementary schooling.
