Orientation to Public Service Occupations: Career Education Curriculum Guide.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Div. of Vocational Education.
The material contained in this curriculum guide is designed to help students, counselors, and teachers cover the career options available in the public services field. It is based on the premise that career choice in public service should be done with an accurate understanding of the field based on careful study and sustained effort over a period of time. The major occupational groups and the major job families in each group are delineated as: (1) government agency management, (2) aocial and economic services, (3) educational services, (4) resources management, (5) urban, rural, and community development, (6) public safety, corrections, and judicial services, (7) regulatory services and records, and (8) transportation management. Sections of the guide contain information on the nature of the occupational groups, the types of work performed, the qualifications and preparation needed, the activities engaged in, career lattices, and employment prospects. Each section includes appropriate instructional objectives, content, student learning activities, teacher management activities, and instructional resources. With the primary objective of learning by doing, teacher activities tend to facilitate the management of learning situations rather than dictating activities. The guide was prepared as a tool for the teacher to use in implementing a career education program. Related documents are available in this issue as VT 020 793-VT 020 796. (Author/MF)
