Approaches to the Logical Validation of Career Development Curricula Paradigms.
Cole, Henry P.
The ultimate effectiveness of career education curricula can be determined only when the children who have been influenced by them become young adults. However, decisions must be made now about which career education paradigms should be translated into curriculum materials, and which materials already developed should be further refined, installed, tested, and disseminated. Logic validation of the rationales and paradigms used can be carried out prior to the full development and implementation of the programs and is necessary for the wise use of limited funds and resources. Topics discussed in detail in the area of basic issues in career development education are: stability vs. change, technology as master or servant, who is an educated person, locus of motivation, and fidelity vs. anomy. General guidelines for career development curricula consider assumptions about the five issues discussed in the first portion of the document, from which seven essential qualities for career development curricula can be inferred. Finally, seven design principles are developed and the whole framework is used to examine the logical validity of the Career Development for Children Project (CDCP) for a K-12 curriculum in career education.
