A Foreign Language Educator Looks at Career Education.
Ford, James F.
This article, concerning the role of foreign language instruction within the framework of career education, provides a brief review of newly emerging educational theory. Several definitions of career education trace their origins back to the "life adjustment" educational philosophy proposed by John Dewey. A model program for career education, the Comprehensive Career Education Model being developed by the Center for Vocational and Technical Education at Ohio State University, is described. The final section of the article is devoted to ways in which foreign language instruction can be oriented toward the concept of career education. (RL)
