Delaware's Occupational-Vocational Education Model: Career Development Learning Units: Middle School.
Delaware State Board for Vocational Education, Milford.
Eight career development learning units were produced by classroom teachers in the Milford, Delaware, School District using the triad concept of school, teacher, and community and using career clusters as a data base for school activities to increase student awareness of the variety of career opportunities available. Career oriented activities stimulate and encourage students to begin tentative career planning. Students learn about various occupations related to subject material being taught and in this way are assisted in developing an appropriate balance between self-concepts and career aspirations. Students begin to understand how people use mathematics, science, and other subjects in the real world. "Action" career oriented activities are essential to the development of effective instructional programs. (MS)
