Review and Analysis of Sources of Occupational Information for Career Education.
Hills, Kenneth D.
The recent trend toward a greater emphasis on career education for life preparation has brought with it the need for more accurate and appropriate information about self, environment, and the world of work. This publication was prepared to help the classroom teacher in identifying and assessing the various types and sources of occupational information available from government agencies, publishers, organizations, schools, and other sources. It is not intended to be an exhaustive compilation of all available materials but rather to provide representative titles in the various resource areas as well as media for presenting occupational information. The contents provide an overview of the role of occupational information in career education and career development. Included are illustrations of a decision-making model and a career education model. Occupational information sources are identified, as are guidelines for assessment of the information. (MF)
