Career Development and Planning.
MacKenzie, John C.; Manuel, Phil A.
This developmental course in career planning is conceived as a voluntary class open to secondary school students who feel that they are ready to benefit from it. Its function, rather than serving the manpower needs of business and industry, is to assist students to become more aware of themselves as contributing individuals and of the many ways in which they can use their talents productively. Decision-making skills form an integral part of the course so that individuals can utilize the skills beyond the immediate task of career decision-making. The complex issue of work itself is also discussed; the three-and four-day week, high unemployment, and the welfare question are woven into the relevant course content. Nine topics are suggested for inclusion in this course to be offered by the Guidance Department; outlines, resources, and activities are available for most of them. Books, films, games, and kits are also included for the entire course. (SES)
