Hooper, William F.
A career education program was designed for the disadvantaged youth in Leflore County, Mississippi, to be incorporated into the curriculum and supported with a guidance and counseling program (including job placement). At all grade levels, attempts were made to help the children become aware of themselves and others, develop a positive attitude toward the world of work, and expose them to as many occupations as possible. A program emphasizing career awareness in grades 1-6 and career exploration in grades 7-9 was begun to enable the students to choose between a college preparatory curriculum or a specific skill training curriculum. (Except for a fourteen-page explanation of the program, the document is devoted to appendixes. The first (five pages) outlines the responsibilities of the five types of program personnel. The second (45 pages) concerns samples of career activities: lesson title, pre-planning, objectives, teaching procedures and activities, related subjects areas, vocabulary, teaching aids, and teacher's evaluation. A sample field trip information form is the third appendix (one page). The fourth (two pages) is a program evaluation form. The final appendix (30 pages) deals with materials in career education, including an annotated bibliography of filmstrips and books. (AG)
