The Development of a Model for Career Education with Implications for a Local School System.
Carter, Robert Theodore
This study was conducted to provide a basis for change in the curriculum for Grades 1-12 and to develop a systems model for career education that would facilitate implementation of a career education program in the Jefferson County, Alabama School System. The individual career development model developed in this study is client-centered and requires participatory planning on the part of administrators, teachers, counselors, parents, students, and community leaders. The basic components of the model are: (1) developmental bodies, (2) input, (3) selective functions, (4) implementation, (5) output, (6) evaluation, and (7) feedback. The model focuses on career development which begins in Grade 1 and is centered around the theme of career opportunities and awareness of the world of work. The program includes structuring required subjects to include units of career awareness and exploration in Grades 1-12. In the junior high grades, students may explore the occupational clusters through a multi-media approach in a career exploratory laboratory and through field observation. The senior high level offers students the opportunity to pursue the selected occupational area through intensive job preparation training or preparation for higher education in a degree program or post secondary institute.
