High School Curriculum Guide.
Hoyt, Kenneth B.; Wollard, G. G.
Resulting in part from a project designed to identify and describe comprehensive programs of excellence in career education, this curriculum guide is the fourth in a series describing current, successful career education practices. Intended for high school teachers, this monograph is a guide to the career education concept and the process for implementation in the secondary curriculum. Among the topics discussed are: (1) rationale for career education, including a definition of career education and problems associated with implementing a career education program, (2) 10 processes for implementing a career education program, including such processes as using advisory committees, providing job-related training, using the community as learning space, organizing student clubs, and charting student progress, and (3) necessary changes to ensure successful implementation, such as staff and curriculum changes. Other booklets in this series are available as VT 020 082-VT 020 090 in this issue. (SB)
