Verhoven, Peter J.; Vinton, Dennis A.
The guidelines suggested in this publication have been designed to assist educators in developing career education programs based on local needs and resources in the leisure career family for the occupational groups in recreation services, recreation resources, tourism, and amusement and entertainment. The basic approaches presented are applicable to all career areas. The specific focus of this guide is on adapting curriculums to integrate leisure career education into existing programs and subject matter. The document discusses the historical perspective and rationale for career education and presents an overview of the rapidly growing leisure industry, the career opportunities available, and the employment requirements for leisure occupations. Examples of incorporating the leisure career theme into curriculums of language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and the expressive arts are provided, along with guidelines for implementing a career education program for leisure occupations. Sample job descriptions, typical goals and objectives for leisure career education, and sources of information are appended. (MF)
