Career Opportunities Curriculum Guide. Basic Unit, Advanced Unit. Draft.
Edwards, Helen; Loftis, Florence
The career opportunities guide, part of a consumer and homemaking education unit, was developed in a 3-week curriculum workshop at Winthrop College in June 1972. The identified objectives and learning experiences have been developed with basic reference to developmental tasks, needs, interests, capacities, and prior learning experiences of students. The objectives of the guide are written in behavioral terms but are not fully operational since conditions and performance standards are not specified. The overall or terminal objectives stated for the major concept areas are supported by selecting enabling objectives. The basic unit, for grade 9, considers career selection, employability factors, skill development opportunities, and fair wages. The advanced unit, for grade 10, considers vocational decisions, job information sources, job application, employee-employer relationships, paycheck withholdings, and employment experiences. Both units are presented by stating concepts and overall objectives. Under each concept, three columns list behavioral objectives, learning and evaluation experiences, and teaching resources.
