Establishing Guidelines for Career Education K-12: A Summer Project, 1972.
Genovese, Sandra; And Others
This guide is the result of a workshop effort directed toward planning a strategy for implementing career education within the Mesa Unified School District. It was developed to assist teachers in becoming familiar with career education and acquainting them with the instructional resources available to them. Comprehensive in scope, the guide sets forth a format for the development and operation of career education programs from kindergarten through Grade 12. In keeping with its concern with helping individuals to discover their career needs, assess their vocational potentialities, implement vocational plans of action, develop their life purposes with alternatives, and realize their career goal, this career education plan proposes the implementation of developmental programs at four levels. By level, those component programs are: (1) career and self awareness (at the elementary level), (2) career orientation exploration (at the middle school level), (3) formulation of career plans (at the early high school level), and (4) career preparation and training (at the later high school level). Career alternatives are to be emphasized at all levels. Included are: (1) suggested activities for implementing the plans, (2) announcements of books and audiovisual materials with addresses of information sources listed, and (3) a list of suggested equipment for career centers.
