Career Education: In-Service Teacher Education. Information Series Number 92.
Haines, Peter G.
Career Education poses a challenge for in-service education and requires management decision making from all the discipline areas and teaching levels. The major theme of this paper is that sound planning and management of a systematic in-service delivery system is basic to implementing career education. A planning format is presented for use in determining the strategy of the in-service effort, the structure of the program to be presented, and the instructional system which supports the effort. The second theme of the paper is that any in-service program dealing with a major change must consider that each school system generally has a large turnover of personnel, who may have little or no knowledge of career education or insight into its operational meaning. A third theme concerns the need to create an indepth understanding of the nature of career education and how it can add meaning and relevance to instruction. Steps in the strategy for in-service education are outlined, with a strong recommendation that the school district assume the cost of the professional retraining for the major policy change inherent in the career education concept. A case study of a preservice career education module is presented as a model for the design of an in-service program. Appended are instruments to assist district personnel in evaluating materials for career education and an attitudes survey to assess beliefs toward career education. (Author/VT)
